Mathew Horne Cast In New Boy George BBC Drama

February 5, 2010
Mathew Horne Cast In New Boy George BBC DramaActor Mathew Horne has been cast in a new BBC drama about Boy George, which charts the singer's rise to stardom.

The Gavin and Stacy star will play Culture Club drummer Jon Moss in the 90-minute drama, entitled Worried About The Boy.

Boy George, real name George O'Dowd', will be played by Douglas Booth, while former Hustle star Marc Warren is to play Steve Strange.

Hailing from south-east London, Boy George rose to become one of Britain's biggest popstars of the 1980s.

But it was also a decade that saw the singer battle heroin addiction, before launching a solo career.

Written by Tony Basgallop, Worried About The Boy will also star Mark Gatiss as music mogul Malcolm McLaren.

The drama forms part of BBC Two's forthcoming 80s' series. Production begins later this month.
