Joss Whedon is producing a new Buffy the Vampire Slayer spin-off and he wants Pete Doherty to play a zombie which is, of course, fine and makes sense. Even the photo aobve means he would save money on the latex makeup they use. Look at his stomach for example. It looks like a bottom lip. He's a two mouthed beast of some kind.
Joss Whedon said:
“Pete seemed the obvious choice, with his love of the macabre. The blood paintings and the self-styled night creature existence are perfect. “
Pete’s ability to actually inflict the macabre on people who come within a mile radius of him might also make him the perfect choice too. It would make him the perfect choice in helping Joss Whedon indulge his clearly desperate need to abuse and annoy himself. He must have a desperate need to annoy himself if he’s thinking of hiring a man who has almost been and actually been arrested so many times for drug use it’s now simply a tallying process for those keeping score at home. Doherty gave his cat cocaine. What part of that says, "will turn up to work and not trash set - daily".
In fact, just the entire notion of actually hiring Pete Doherty to do anything is preposterous.
Unless, ah yes…it just came to me. Unless he were hired as a goodwill ambassador for children in some war torn land. Just like Angelina Jolie. It would be wise and prudent to send him among disadvantaged children and let him simply behave as he pleases. There’s nothing that could go wrong with having Pete Doherty in charge of the fate of many many children. Pete Doherty could become their god. He is already somewhat of a God in the West anyway. Pete Doherty might very well be the Western God of Perfection. He walks among us evading conviction through sheer purity. Kate Moss is a fool for having ex-communicated him.
Incidentally, no one has actually established if the Babyshambles actually rehearse.
