A new video has been released showing Taron Egerton starring as Elton John in upcoming film Rocketman—a biopic about the legendary British musician. The latest sneak peak, released by Paramount Pictures on February 18th showed the actor from Wales singing one of the most iconic songs in Sir Elton’s career – Tiny Dancer. The movie, named after John’s song “Rocket Man,” explores John’s life, from his time as a prodigy at the Royal Academy of Music, through to his enduring musical partnership with Bernie Taupin (played by Jamie Bell), and his way to the global fame in spite of addictions, mental health problems and struggles to accept his sexuality. As well as acting, Egerton, who previously clarified that he is not gay amid speculation over his sexuality, will perform some of John’s classic. According to music producer Giles Martin in the video, John has expressed approval for Egerton’s portrayal of him and praised his vocal skills.
