OZZY Osbourne wants to play his mother in the film of his life.

The heavy metal legend's biography I Am Ozzy is being adapted for the big screen, and although he is reluctant to appear in it himself he would like to have an unusual cameo.

He told Germany's FHM magazine: "I don't really want to be in it. At least I'm hoping I won't. Although I wouldn't mind a cameo - that would be fun. I could play my mother or Lemmy from Motorhead!"

Ozzy has previously revealed who he wants to play him in the biopic - Hollywood heartthrob Johnny Depp.

The 61-year-old music star - who is from Birmingham, England - said: "Johnny Depp is much better looking than me, but he was all set to be me in the film. That would be good. But I'd also like an unknown guy from Birmingham to get the part."

Just as Ozzy has definite ideas about the movie, his wife Sharon knows who she wants to portray her - Carey Mulligan.

Referring to Carey's film An Education, the America's Got Talent judge said: "That lady from An Education could play me - she's fabulous!"
