The part of David Bowie has been cast in the first actual David Bowie biopic. South African actor/musician Johnny Flynn will play David as David invents Ziggy Stardust, according to The Hollywood Reporter . Johnny currently stars in Amazon’s Vanity Fair series, and also appeared in Netflix’s Lovesick and as Albert Einstein in the NatGeo series Genius. Good luck, Johnny. Unfortunately, Ziggy will NOT be playing guitar as this movie will reportedly be minus any of David’s music. So you might have a rough ride ahead of you.
In “Dead Musical Geniuses Who Don’t Have Relatives Scrapping Over Their Remains” News, David Bowie’s son Duncan Jones tweeted his son’s birth announcement last night. Stenton David Jones was born on July 10, six months to the day that his granddad passed away due to cancer.

Bowie’s actual name was David Robert Jones, and Stenton is named for Ziggy Stardust’s dad. And why am I blogging about yet another incredibly important musical artist who is no longer with us? I’m reminding myself of the loss. Hopefully they’re working together on something in Rock Star Heaven. Duncan also thanked his wife, Rodene Ronquillo.
“All my love and awe to the incredible @rodeneronquillo who made a human being in her belly. Warrior woman & every day, my hero.”
He better have thanked her. Not only did she birth a human (which I’m assuming is the worst pain ever barring violent death), but he drew her like that. I know it’s a quickie drawing made out of love, but that’s not exactly a push present. “That’s sweet, dear, but why does my vagina look like a duck’s bill?” Wait, is that supposed to be Bowie? Why does he have a uniboob?
