Who plays Jerry Garcia in Martin Scorsese’s biopic “Grateful Dead”?

Famed director Martin Scorsese is reportedly filming a musical biopic about the legendary Bay Area rock band Grateful Dead.

So of course the Deadheads will want to know who will be playing the band’s iconic lead vocalist Jerry Garcia?

According to various sources, it will be Jonah Hill.

Hill, who has starred in films such as Superbad, Moneyball and Knocked Up, seems to have confirmed the casting choice with an Instagram post stating that he was cast as Garcia in the film.

Hill previously worked with Scorsese on The Wolf of Wall Street, which earned the actor an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor. This was his second nomination in this category. He first appeared in Billy Bean’s biopic of Oakland “Moneyball”.

This isn’t the first time Scorsese has traveled to the Grateful Land. Director Goodfellas also executive produced an excellent 2017 documentary about the band, Long Strange Trip.
