According to one site, he went out on a limb -- and by that we mean a huge one by saying he wants George Clooney to fill his shoes!
“I dare say … who’s going to play me, George Clooney? I mean they’ve got to get someone good and handsome. But they’ll probably end up with Ray Winstone or someone like that knowing my luck.”
As for who would play Amy, rumors are swirling Lady Gaga will take on the role. Although Mitch seems to be a fan of Mother Monster, he's not completely sold on having her play his daughter in the fllm.

He explained, “I mean Lady Gaga, if she wants to come and audition for it….Her mum says she puts her sneakers on and her tracksuit and sits on the couch and eats chocolates like everyone else. She’s a nice kid and her parents are just ordinary Italian working class people and she loves her mum and dad and she loves her grandparents."
“She’s the same as Amy – she’s a nice kid, very nice young lady," he added. "She still can’t play Amy though.”
