Boy George's Life to Be Turned Into TV Drama
Boy George's story is coming to the small screen - the BBC is turning the Culture Club frontman's colorful life into a TV drama. The one-off special will revisit the singer's career from club cloakroom attendant to 1980s gender-bending icon.
Two supporting cast members have already signed up for the project, "Worried About the Boy" - British actor Mat Horne will play Culture Club drummer Jon Moss, an alleged former lover of the singer - real name George O'Dowd, while Green Street Hooligans star Marc Warren will take on the role of scene trend setter Steve Strange.
The drama will chronicle the early days of Culture Club, who went on to sell 22 million albums worldwide, O'Dowd's addiction to heroin and his prison spell in 2009 when he was put behind bars for assault and false imprisonment of a male prostitute.
