Now here’s something we’d pay to see: Tilda Swinton says she would be thrilled to play Conan O’Brien in a TV movie about the comic’s messy departure from NBC. During Conan’s final appearance as host on The Tonight Show last Friday, the funnyman made a joke saying that if HBO were to make a movie about the late night drama at The Peacock he would “like to be played by Academy Award-winner Tilda Swinton.”
Well MovieLine.com caught up with the actress while she was promoting her new feature I Am Love at the Sundance Film Festival over the weekend, and in what will likely be music to Conan’s ears, Tilda is up for the challenge.
“I’ve heard about Conan!” Tilda squealed. “I’m so thrilled. I would just be only too happy. Yes, yes, yes, absolutely.”
