Doppelgangers in Los Angeles! Elton John appeared at a breakfast at the ritzy Bel-Air Bay Club today along with actor Tom Hardy—who will be portraying the pop icon in the upcoming biopic Rocketman. A day before the American Film Market (AFM) commenced, the two showed up in conjunction with shopping the film to international distributors.Filming for Rocketman will begin in fall 2014, and the narrative will focus on John's prodigal music career, one that started when he was just five years old. It's also been reported that the singer will be rerecording some of his tracks for the film.

We can't wait and hope it's not going to be a long, long time before we get to watch this movie.
