David Walliams 'To Play Barrymore In TV Drama'
Little Britain star lined-up to play troubled television personality...
A source told the paper: "It's a four-part drama looking at Michael's glory years. It shows how he was a hugely popular family man and television icon who had a number of skeletons in the closet.
"David will be perfect to play him. He's great at improvising but can also portray fragility and the darkness at the heart of the story."
The series is expected to be confined to the height of 59-year-old Barrymore's career, before the death of Stuart Lubbock in his swimming pool during a party in 2001.
