Cate Blanchett one of six actors to portray Dylan in new film

Cate Blanchett as Bob Dylan

From The Daily Mail:

"As the 'chameleon' of actors Cate Blanchett is used to adopting a number of guises. From her breakthrough role as Elizabeth I - through to her Oscar-winning turn as Katharine Hepburn in The Aviator - she is as mesmerising playing historical figures as she is modern ones. However her next role will surely outdo all the others when her performance inspired by legendary folk singer Bob Dylan hits the big screen...

The Australian actress, 38, is one of six actors including Heath Ledger, Richard Gere and up-and-coming British actor Ben Whishaw who will make an appearance as Dylan - each embodying a different aspect of his life story and music."
