No, it's not April 1st. And no, he's not even playing a scabby street urchin or the village leper... Pete Doherty has got a genuine starring role in a film.

Brave producers have cast the drug-addled muso in an adaptation of the French novel La Confession d'un Enfant du Siècle playing the womanising poet Alfred de Musset alongside Charlotte Gainsbourg as the female lead.

We didn't even know he could act!

Filming began this week in Germany. And presumably Pete actually turned up!
