Molly Meldrum handpicked actor Samuel Johnson to play himself in the new TV series 'Molly', as reported by The Music. The production has already started shooting in Melbourne, with plans to screen it on Channel 7 later this year. Samuel's resemblance to the much loved Australian music industry veteran is uncanny (as in the picture above)! Michael Gudinski's Mushroom Pictures is developing the show, which details Molly's life and the rise of the classic 'Countdown' TV show. The series was reportedly planned before the success of last year's INXS mini-series, and will no doubt be popular with Aussie music fans.
