The first reaction I heard was that Pete Davidson was too short for the role. He's 6-3. Joey Ramone was 6-6. 🙄
Pete Davidson will produce and star in I SLEPT WITH JOEY RAMONE, a new biopic chronicling the life of the king of punk — whom we lost 20 years ago today.— NetflixFilm (@NetflixFilm) April 15, 2021
The film, directed by Jason Orley from a treatment by Davidson and Orley, is based on Mickey Leigh's memoir of the same name. pic.twitter.com/4r49gZfsmo
