Buzz In: Who Should Play Frank Sinatra in Scorsese's Biopic?

Buzz In: Who Should Play Frank Sinatra in Scorsese's Biopic?

Who better to direct a biopic about the famous blue-eyed Italian-American entertainer Frank Sinatra than Martin Scorsese? This is the kind of movie news that's so "just right" it makes me wonder why it hasn't happened before. Here's more on the project, titled simply, Sinatra:

The deal comes after years of negotiations with Frank Sinatra Enterprises, a joint venture of the crooner's estate and Warner Music Group. One major obstacle was the internal politics of the estate, where family members had to come to consensus on how to tell the story and, more importantly, just how much of the story to tell.

Raised during the Depression, [Sinatra] built a singing career that weathered many changes in popular culture, all while he racked up 31 gold records and countless other honors. He also had a successful career as an actor, proving naysayers wrong by earning an Oscar for From Here to Eternity. His personal life was just as eventful. He suffered from depression and a bipolar disorder, was alleged to have connections to organized crime and was married four times, including to actresses Ava Gardner and Mia Farrow.

Now the big question remains: What modern-day actor can appropriately portray Sinatra, one of America's most famous singers? Who's got the charm and presence, a bit of an edge at times, and most of all, those mesmerizing eyes? Who would you cast?
