Piers Morgan Slams Idea of Sophie Turner Playing Boy George

Piers Morgan Slams Idea of Sophie Turner Playing Boy George

Piers Morgan seems to be one of the only people who doesn’t love the idea of Game of ThronesSophie Turner potentially playing Boy George in the biopic about his life.

If you missed the story, Sophie responded to a headline this week that said Boy George would love to see her in the role. Sophie said she’d be “so down” to play him in a movie.

Boy George, in his biopic, presumably at some stage has sex with people. How is he going to do that if he doesn’t have the equipment?,” Piers said (via The Sun) on Good Morning Britain during a rant. “There are reality checks to having Sophie Turner playing Boy George, one of which is: she’s a woman.”

Piers added, “Does Wonder Woman get played by a man? No. When someone is a famous man like Boy George how can it be a women playing [him]? Create your own damn character. Don’t take our characters, don’t take our pop stars, leave us alone.”

He continued, “It’s a very insidious thing that every male character, a woman wants to play, it’s creepy.”
