Why Edgar Ramirez Should Play a Young Giuseppe Verdi in a Biopic

Edgar Ramirez in an A-List actor who is no stranger to biopics. He has portrayed  Roberto Duran, Simon Bolivar and Gianni Versace. 

Giuseppe Verdi was a 19th century composer best known for his La Traviata and La Donna Mobile. Ramirez has an uncanny resemblance to a young Verdi. I even was able to ask Edgar who else he would consider playing in a biopic at the 2019 W Magazine’s Golden Globes Pre Party. Verdi came to my mind after seeing a portrait of a young Giuseppe.

Verdi’s operas are regularly performed all the world and his songs are mainstay on Looney Tunes. Hopefully we can get this biopic casting idea to Edgar’s rep : Josh Lieberman.
