The star has reportedly been in talks to play the late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain, says the UK's Sun. The British paper claims he's has been in contact with Courtney Love, Cobain's widow, who is lobbying for R-Patz to play her former husband, and Scarlett Johansson to portray her.

Cobain, who brought grunge to the forefront and had hits with "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and "Come As You Are," shot and killed himself in 1994.
