Marco Pierre White’s Life Might Be Turned Into A Movie – Who Would Play Him?
Marco Pierre White’s life might be making it to the big screen with news in that Hollywood are interested in the rights to his book White Heat.
[Marco Pierre]White, co-host of Channel 10’s MasterChef: The Professionals with Matt Preston, is talking with director Jordan Scott – daughter of Hollywood heavyweight Ridley – about a movie script based on his book White Heat.
It’s understood Scott’s UK film house, Scott Free Productions, wants to document White’s phenomenal rise from teenage apprentice in Leeds, northern England, to become the king of international cooking.
If Marco’s life is turned into a movie who should play him? A brooding Liev Schriber, Kevin Spacey from ten years ago or Robert Downey Jr? Who would you like to see play Marco on screen?

Sunday – The Classic Re-invention test
With nine different cuisines featured in tonight’s Knife Block, it’s a truly internationally flavoured program. The contestants must choose two knives. Each knife reveals a cuisine they have to fuse with the other to create a spectacular dish. The worst performer will leave the competition.
Monday – Offsite Challenge
Tonight’s offsite challenge sees the eight contestants split into two teams as they forage through suburban homes, knocking on doors and working with whatever ingredients they find. The contestants take their ingredients to the local park, where they prepare canapés for a garden party for everyone in the neighbourhood. Tensions are running high, as the winning team has an opportunity to win guaranteed immunity.
Tuesday – Restaurant Service Challenge with Guest Chef Stefano De Pieri
The winning team from last night’s offsite challenge is competing for guaranteed immunity. Split into two teams of two, each team must design and cook a three-course Italian meal for some very tough customers: 120 Italians. Joining Matt Preston in the restaurant is Italian culinary legend Stefano de Pieri as guest judge.
