A Succession star has reportedly thrown their hat in the ring to star in a forthcoming Bruce Springsteen biopic as the musician's manager.

Jeremy Strong has been tipped to play the role of Jon Landau, Springsteen's manager for many years.

Landau was previously a music critic, and he first found Bruce back in 1974, before becoming hus manager in 1975.

He went on to co-produce nine albums alongside Springsteen, including the smash hits Nebraska, Born In The USA and Born To Run.

The Bear actor Jeremy Allen White is set to play Springsteen in the film, which will be based on Warren Zane's book called Deliver Me From Nowhere: The Making Of Bruce Springsteen's Nebraska.

It's been reported that Springsteen and Landau are both actively involved in the project.

The film will showcase the making of the Nebraska record of Springsteen's, which happened around the time of Born In The USA being recorded.

Nebraska was Bruce's sixth studio album, and it stands out from many of the others as it is far more stripped back.

The album came at a dark time in Springsteen's life, and he recorded several songs as demos on a 4-track recorded.

The plan was always to re-record them with his E Street Band.

However, Bruce ultimately decided to release them as the existing demos.

The news comes after Jeremy topped many of the lists for Best Dressed at the Met Gala for his all-white outfit.
