AUTHOR Frank McCourt has outlined his desire for A-list Hollywood actors Matthew Broderick, Johnny Depp or Cork's Cillian Murphy to play him in the film Teacher Man, his third novel, which is due to hit the big screen in two years' time.
Mr McCourt, who visited Limerick this week and retraced his childhood on the Angela's Ashes tour of the city for the first time, joked:
"To be honest, there's nobody good-looking enough to play me.
"They've talked about everybody like Johnny Depp, but my favourite is Matthew Broderick, who may be too old now. But the other one I like is Cillian Murphy – he would be great. It's at an embryonic stage at the moment, so we'll see. It should be out the year after next," he told the Limerick Leader.
