Harry Styles is mussy-haired, handsome, British and good at singing and dancing. In other words, he's the perfect fit to play Mick Jagger in the forthcoming Rolling Stones biopic, Exile on Main Street: A Season in Hell with The Rolling Stones. 

And according to UK music publication The Line of Best Fit, Styles could very well play Jagger in the movie, which tells the story of how The Stones' album Exile on Main Street came to fruition. The flick is based on a book by Robert Greenfield, an author who chronicled the tumultuous, drug-addled atmosphere that fueled the album's recording sessions in the summer of 1971. 

Downton Abbey director Andy Goddard is slated to direct the project, according to Deadline. If the Harry Styles-cum-Jagger rumors turn out to be true, it won't be the One Direction star's first acting credit. In March, Styles joined the cast of Dunkirk, the Christopher Nolan directed WWII action thriller. He'll be appearing alongside Tom Hardy in that one, so expect fireworks upon its release in summer 2017.
