I mean seriously, could this role go to anyone else?

Bruno Mars has apparently been lined up to play Prince in an upcoming Netflix movie about the late singer's life. Prince was one of Bruno’s idols and to be asked to play him in a debut acting role he said will be the most nerve-racking move of his career.

Mars is known to be a huge fan of Prince since he was a little kid, and he even paid tribute to Prince with a performance at last year’s Grammy Awards (see video above).

“Bruno says it will probably be the most nerve-racking move of his career if it happens,” a Netflix source told The Mirror. However, Mars has yet to respond to the claims this could happen.

It's my hope that it does because it would be a slam dunk!
