Some critics of the casting for Elton John biopic ‘Rocketman’ say an LGBT actor should have portrayed the the central figure.

As for the famous rocker, however, actor Taron Egerton was a great choice.

“That’s all bullshit, I’m sorry,” John said when asked recently about the backlash.

The film depicts some low points in his life and evoked obvious emotions when he viewed its premiere.

“There’s no holds barred,” he said. “I hope it inspires people to come out and I hope it inspires people to come off drugs.”
