So this past Tuesday was the 17th death anniversary of Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain, and for me, it kind of passed without much notice. My husband is a hardcore Nirvana fan and I am not (sometimes I wonder what I see in him at all – I’m totally kidding, he’s really great in bed), and we were talking yesterday about how fucking old we both felt knowing that Kurt Cobain was made to eat a gun almost two decades ago. Old, right? OLD.
Anyway, 30 Seconds to Mars’ Jared Leto (or if you remember Kurt Cobain’s ‘suicide,’ My So-Called Life‘s Jared Leto) did some kind of pseudo-audition tape for a Kurt Cobain biopic that he’s hoping will be made so he could star in it. This? Was the result. I actually thought it was pretty good.
What do you guys think of Leto as Cobain? I mean, I always thought Jared was a pretty OK actor, and really, who would do nineties-grunge better than Jordan Catalano (aside from Kurt Cobain, but guys? He’s dead). Love it? Hate it? Are you still crying about Cobain today?
