McFly star Tom Fletcher has named Harry Potter star Tom Felton as the person he would like to play him with in a biopic.
The singer, 36, said people confused him with the actor, who played Draco Malfoy in the film adaptations of JK Rowling’s books, and added, “We’re not correcting them anymore.”
Fletcher was speaking before taking to the dance floor for Strictly Come Dancing’s movie-week-themed routines this weekend.
The musician and his partner Amy Dowden were absent from the BBC One show last Saturday due to having had to self-isolate for 10 days after testing positive for the coronavirus.
This week, they’ll be playing a jive about Chuck Berry’s Johnny B Goode from Back to the Future, which he said was his favorite movie.
Discussing the film that inspired the name of his band, he said: “He’s got everything you could want, time travel, the DeLorean, a mad scientist and a hero who can skate and play guitar. . It’s the perfect movie.
He chose Back To The Future’s Marty McFly as the character he would most like to play, adding, “This movie changed my life, we gave our band its name. And it has an amazing soundtrack.
Actor Michael J Fox played teenager Marty McFly in the film trilogy, which sees him travel through time using the DeLorean, a time traveling car built by his eccentric scientist friend Doc Brown, played by Christopher Lloyd.
Fox was diagnosed with early-stage Parkinson’s disease in 1991.
Other performances on Strictly this week will include a jive of Tilly Ramsay and her partner Nikita Kuzmin at Nicest Kids In Town played by James Marsden in the movie Hairspray.
Strictly Come Dancing continues on BBC One Saturday at 6:45 p.m.
