Who can hold a candle to Elton John?

The singer's husband David Furnish recently revealed that they've started work on Rocketman, a movie about John's "very extraordinary and unique life," he tells Entertainment Weekly.

While Scottish actor James McAvoy is rumored to be the frontrunner to play Sir Elton, we've got some other ideas for the role – especially when it comes to slipping in to John's glamorous (and spangly) '70s wardrobe.

On our list: comic actor David Cross (of Arrested Development); The League's Paul Scheer, who more than bares a passing resemblance to the '70s-era star; Mike Myers, who, apart from being a comedy star, is musically-inclined; and Scottish star Ewan McGregor who's already posed as a glam rocker in Todd Haynes's Velvet Goldmine.
