After almost a year since the announcement, the Alexander McQueen film has finally got its lead man. And he is...

It's confirmed! English actor Jack O'Connell will play Alexander McQueen in the highly anticipated biopic on the fashion designer. The actor, who was last seen in Money Monster together with George Clooney and Julia Roberts, will act out the story in the months leading up to McQueen's 2009 show, drafted mostly from Andrew Wilson's literary work Alexander McQueen: Blood Beneath the Skin.
