The whole idea just sucks
If maybe if they did a GD movie with clay animation or muppets maybe
or maybe the band as different animals like lizards

I'm with Jackstraw. Jerry was Jerry onstage; which just can't be depicted. I care so little about his personal life, other than he was a human being like everyone else and would chat all night with random deadheads about cool subjects, and like most entertainers, was not an available dad. I could live with another documentary, but this, no thanks. Must we always take pop marketing and Hollywood along with our meaningful history? Also how do you train for a role like that?

The GD commercial juggernaut is comical these days.

Saw something on social media, no idea if it is true or BS.

Owsley to be played by Steve Buscemi. That would work.

A JERRY GARCIA BIOPIC ???
On the face of it, this is a dreadful idea; regardless of the director, producers(s) and actors involved. Garcia needs no biopic to cement his reputation, his music is more than adequate to that task. I am genuinely shocked by the choice of his former bandmates to support this project, but what do i know ? Perhaps they think it is better to be 'inside the tent, pissing out'; than 'outside the tent, pissing in' ? Who's to say? All I know is that several central and seminal events in Garcia's life happened on MY watch and no-one (including his former band members) have much (if any) idea of what went down. No-one's talked to me about some 'biopic'; so I'll keep my powder dry and wait and see. The 'deification' of Jerry is exceptionally painful to watch and does the man's memory few favours. I can't see that this 'Hollyweird' version of the man's life will substantially or even minimally 'add' to his legacy. The music speaks for itself. Are the people involved in this project CAPABLE of 'keeping things real' when it comes to this subject matter ? I shall reserve judgement until the film comes out. One thing we all can be SURE of, if it doesn't do justice to his memory then it will be slammed unmercifully by those of us who loved the man and who don't wish to exploit in any way his memory. DeadHeads who were alive in the 1970's know who Jerry was, warts and all .... we will not sit idly by and allow his memory to be desecrated by crude monetary considerations. Put it like this ... if it aint good enough, then we'll just sit back and laugh it out of court .... enough said. One love
