Mike Myers has been confirmed to play legendary drummer Keith Moon in a forthcoming biopic.

Famous for the Austin Powers and Wayne’s World films, was hand-picked by Moon’s former The Who bandmate Roger Daltrey to play the iconic drummer.

Keith Moon was famous for his destructive lifestyle, and passed away in 1978 at the age of 32, as the result of an overdose.

The film’s co-producer Nigel Sinclair said: “Roger’s dream was to have Mike as the creative force to pull the project together”

The film, which has been given the title See Me Feel Me (Keith Moon Naked For Pleasure), is due for release in 2009, which should give Myers enough time to practice driving expensive cars into swimming pools.
