The Leading Man (1996)

Directed by
John Duigan

Jon Bon Jovi might not seem to be the most obvious choice to play lead in John Duigan's intiguing film but he's a revelation as the American star brought in by playwright Lambert Wilson to front his new London show. He also agrees to take over Wilson's wife, leaving the writer free to pursue the play's female lead Thandie Newton, but Bon Jovi has his own agenda and not all his acting will be done on the boards...
