The cast of the upcoming Beatles biopics is coming together as Paul Mescal is reportedly in the running to play one of the Fab Four.

The Hollywood Reporter posted a feature on 10 rising stars in Hollywood. They nonchalantly drop in that Mescal is being eyed for the Beatles biopics in his profile. It is unknown which of the Beatles he is being eyed to play, but if true, this is a huge get for Sam Mendes.

Paul McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr make up the Beatles.

What are the Beatles biopics?

Earlier this year, it was reported that Sam Mendes would be making four Beatles biopics. It is not known what parts of their lives the films will depict. While it is possible they all show the Fab Four members' journeys joining the band, it is also possible that each film tells a different story.

Casting has not been heavily discussed recently. Mescal is the first major name to emerge.

The Beatles are one of the most iconic bands of all time. They were together for a decade between 1960-70 but released countless hits in that span.

The Fab Four released their first album, Please Please Me, in 1963. In the following years, they released hit albums such as A Hard Day's Night, Help, Rubber Soul, and Revolver.

The second half of their career included Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, the White Album, Abbey Road, and Let It Be.

Since the breakup, all four members continued making music and touring. The two living members, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, are still going strong.

Who is Paul Mescal?

Paul Mescal first gained notoriety for his award-winning role in Normal People. He also starred in the TV miniseries The Deceived in 2020.

On the big screen, Mescal made his feature film debut in The Lost Daughter. He starred in Maggie Gyllenhaal's film alongside heavy hitters such as Olivia Colman, Dakota Johnson, and Jessie Buckley.

The next year, Mescal starred in three films — God's Creatures, Aftersun, and Carmen. He gained his first Oscar nomination for his performance in Aftersun. In the film, Mescal played Calum, the single father of Sophie (Frankie Corio).

Unfortunately, he did not win. Mescal ultimately lost to Brendan Fraser, who won Best Actor for his performance in The Whale. Austin Butler (Elvis), Colin Farrell (The Banshees of Inisherin), and Bill Nighy (Living) were also nominated.

He followed up his breakout year with two more films, All of Us Strangers and Foe. Coming up, Mescal will lead the ensemble of Ridley Scott's Gladiator 2. Pedro Pascal, Denzel Washington, and Joseph Quinn also star in the film. He plays Lucius in the film, the nephew of Joaquin Phoenix's Commodus from the first Gladiator film.
