Who needs agents, directors or screenwriters? When it comes to casting a potential Halsey biopic, the singer and stranger things Star Millie Bobby Brown does everything herself. Hours after Halsey told Jimmy Fallon that they knew just the right actress to portray in a life story film, MBB gave the idea two thumbs up, very enthusiastically.
On her Instagram Story on Tuesday (June 15), Brown, 18, posted a clip of Halsey, 27 The Tonight Show Discussing the slam dunk casting with the all-in message “sooooo down.”
It hasn’t escaped both women that many people have noticed the striking resemblance they bear to each other, which Halsey discussed with Fallon on Monday night. The topic came up when Halsey mentioned that the sweet meeting with screenwriter partner Alev Aydin came after he was hired to write a biographical screenplay about the singer’s life … one that she said MBB could be perfect for .
“I’ve been thinking about who might play you,” Fallon said, when Halsey responded quickly, as if she’d heard the comparison more than 14 times, “I know the answer.” Jimmy then pulled out a photo of Halsey posing as Millie Bobby Brown’s nosebleed character from the Netflix horror drama was in disguise. “Oh, I wanted to say you,” they said, as Fallon giggled and suggested MBB.
“I mean, yeah, Millie would be great,” Halsey said. “But I don’t really think I’m famous enough to cast Millie… It’s kind of uncanny how much we look alike. It’s like, ‘Oh no, we actually just look like sisters.'”
Halsey has discussed this before, including in a June 2 tweet in which She wrote“When will Millie Bobby Brown and I be sisters in something that’s spiraling out of control?”
