Elton’s Doppelgänger

The long-gestating Elton John biopic has inched closer to fruition.  It was just announced that Rocketman will star Taron Egerton.  In case you can’t place him, he starred opposite Hugh Jackman in Eddie the Eagle.   Would I call him Elton’s doppelganger?  Well, he’s a hot Welsh lad with a full head of hair – you decide!  What’s interesting is that Elton’s iconic recordings will not be featured in the flick.  Taron is actually re-recording the songs.  David Furnish says his hubby heard three of the songs and was “blown away”.  Of course, Egerton already had experience singing Elton John songs – in the animated feature Sing, we are treated to his rendition of “I’m Still Standing”.  The Paramount biopic is being directed by Dexter Fletcher, who replaced Bryan Singer on the Freddie Mercury film Bohemian Rhapsody, which comes out on November 2nd.

While perusing Taron Egerton’s oeuvre, I discovered this interesting anecdote.  He appeared in both Kingsmen flicks, where he showed a good amount of skin.  In Kingsman: The Golden Circle, there is a scene where his character places a tracking device in the vagina of a paramour.  Well, at least she’ll always know where it is!  Taron was uncomfortable doing the scene and demurred.  Happily, the actress Poppy Delevingne’s husband jumped in and did the deed with aplomb – or possibly with a plum!

Let me put on my psychic hat and predict what a future Ask Billy question might be.  Billy, do you have any nude photos of Taron Egerton?”  Better than photos – videos.  He was on the UK series The Smoke and, well, let’s just say his shower scene left little to the imagination, as you’ll see on BillyMasters.com.
