British rocker Billy Idol has picked out the man he wants to play him should a movie ever be made about his life - Ewan McGregor.

REBEL YELL hitmaker Idol, 49, believes 33-year-old McGregor would be the perfect choice if his life story ever ended up on the big screen.

He says, "(McGregor) said he wanted to (play me). But he'd have to be Billy at 20, then Billy at 50, although I look pretty much the same, just a little bit beaten up, that's about it.

"Yeah, scars from those rock 'n' roll nights."
