Conan O'Brien was looking toward the future during the last episode of the Tonight Show on Friday.
"When HBO makes a movie" about the late-night wars, O'Brien joked during his final monologue, “I want to be played by Academy Award-winning actress Tilda Swinton.” Swinton's likeness appeared on the screen next to him to demonstrate their similarities.
When Moveline's Kyle Buchanan interviewed Swinton at Sundance, where she's promoting her film I Am Love, he asked her about the offer. “I’ve heard about Conan!” Swinton said. “I’m so thrilled.”
Swinton also has biopic dreams of her own, according to MTV.
"What I really would love to do is get him to do some of the things I get to do. It would be nice if he were here at Sundance maybe, wearing this coat, talking about I Am Love. And why not? Every girl should have a doppelgänger," she said.
