See who's playing the Beatles in new film fronted by Queen's Gambit star

Thanksgiving 2021 officially has Beatlemania.

On the same day that Disney+ dropped Peter Jackson's three-part docuseries The Beatles: Get Back, the upcoming biopic Midas Man revealed the casting and first look images of the actors playing the Fab Four.

In the story of Beatles manager Brian Epstein (Queen's Gambit star Jacob Fortune-Lloyd), his most famous clients will be played by The Letter for the King's Jonah Lees (John Lennon), Eleven Days' Blake Richardson (Paul McCartney), Creation Stories' Leo Harvey Elledge (George Harrison), and newcomer Campbell Wallace (Ringo Starr).
