The 'Tomb Raider' star's uncle wants her to join the Belles for a version of his classic 'Wild Thing'...
ANGELINA JOLIE is reported to be in line to join Scots indie popsters BELLE AND SEBASTIAN, according to press reports today.
The Hollywood sex siren and blockbusting ‘Tomb Raider’ star is the niece of ‘Wild Thing’ composer Chip Taylor, and the veteran rocker told the Scottish Sun that she would be “perfect” for a collaboration with Belle And Sebastian.
Chip, whose brother, actor Jon Voight, is Jolie’s dad, said he will be playing match-maker when he is back in Scotland this month for a few gigs.
“[Angelina] is a very creative girl and I know she’d be a great success as a singer. She has a fantastic spirit she inherited from her dad. Belle And Sebastian have the same kind of passion in their work. I listen to their records all the time and they would be perfect for each other.”
According to the newspaper, Jolie is “desperate” to team up with the band, who recently played a sold-out UK tour included a dated at London Royal Albert Hall.
Taylor, who also wrote the song ‘Angel Of The Morning’ which was reworked by Shaggy for his chart-topper ‘Angel’, added: “A version of ‘Wild Thing’ would be mind-blowing and I’d help her all I could. It would sum up Angelina perfectly and Belle And Sebastian would be the band to carry it off. I’m back in Scotland this month for a few gigs and I’ll be seeing about trying to make it work”.
Purely coincidentally, Taylor released an album in 1979 called ‘Saint Sebastian’. Jolie’s husband Billy Bob Thornton wrote three songs for her, ‘Angelina’, ‘Your Blue Shadow’ and ‘Magic Of Love’, although the latter was left off of his album, ‘Private Radio’, which is released in September.
Belle And Sebastian, who play a headline set at the Benicassim Festival in southern Spain this weekend, were unavailable to comment.
