Washington: Sir Elton John has said that he would like to see Robert Downey Jr. portray him in the planned film about his life.

The ‘Rocket Man’ singer has already announced there is a film based on his life planned, and that he is teaming up with British screenwriter Lee Hall on the project.

Although the film is in its early stages at present, Elton already has one actor in mind to play him, reports a website.

Speaking at the London premiere of ``Gnomeo And Juliet``, Elton, 63, joked to BANG Showbiz: "A biopic of my life? I’m quite old now so they’d have to be two or three actors and they’d have to vary in weight.

“Robert Downey Jr. could maybe play me at a certain stage,” he added.
