Why Gregory Smith should play Eddie Vedder

WHY HIM? Pearl Jam’s Vedder, Cobain’s rival for the king of Alternative Nation title, will no doubt play a small but important part in the biopic, and Smith is the kid for the job. Brown hair, blue eyes, perpetual scowl — slap a wig on him and he’s ready to belt out ”Jeremy.”
