We hope this is true! Whispers are growing louder that One Direction heartthrob Harry Styles may play Mick Jagger in a new film about the Rolling Stones.

Styles is said to be auditioning soon for the coveted role in 'Exile on Main St.,' which will center on the legendary frontman and his right hand man, guitarist Keith Richards. Virgin honcho Richard Branson is said to be financing the project. A source dished, "Harry on stage can pass as a dead ringer for Jagger. If he can transform this image into a movie role then he's going to be a serious candidate to get the part. The signs so far are good." Maybe his role on 'iCarly' impressed them!

The only real caveat to Styles snagging the role would be the time constraints. 1D are gearing up for a slew of world tours promoting 'Up All Night' in both 2012 and 2013. The source says that the role is going to be “very demanding,” so that may complicate things seeing as the band is Styles' No. 1 priority ... aside from cougars, that is.

The good news? Higher ups seem to be willing to wait for Styles if they need to. What do you think, Directioners? While he has the look for the part, based on his dancing onstage, we're just not sure that Styles has the "moves like Jagger." But there's always choreographers to fix that!
