Jonny Greenwood wants "slightly unusual-looking" Bill Hader to play him in a Radiohead biopic 

Roberto Ricciuti/WireImageIf Radiohead were to get the Bohemian Rhapsody treatment, guitarist Jonny Greenwood has a good idea of who should play him in the film.

Speaking to NME, Greenwood suggests the "guy from Saturday Night Live who's slightly unusual-looking."

"He made that comedy recently about that hit-man who ends up becoming an actor," the guitarist adds. One must assume Greenwood's referring to Bill Hader, former SNL cast-member and current Emmy-winning star of the HBO dark comedy, Barry.

However, Greenwood thinks the chances of a Radiohead biopic getting made are pretty slim.

"You're experiencing in real-time how awkward and un-engaging I am, so it would just be awful. It would be gruesome," he says. "When we started, we were obsessed with recording ourselves and listening to ourselves. We weren't that interested in spreading it beyond that. We were a very inward-looking group."
