Ed Sheeran plays himself, the global superstar that he is, in the new movie Yesterday.


He wasn’t the first superstar asked, though.

Director Danny Boyle says they originally asked Chris Martin from Coldplay.

Danny told Billboard Ed never let that go:

“He teased us rotten because he found out we’d asked Chris Martin first, so he never let us forget that”

The movie follows a guy who wakes up one day as the only person in the world that knows the Beatles, so he pretends to have written their music as his own and becomes a sensation.

Yesterday is in theatres June 28th.
