Living up to his stage name Johnny Rotten, John Lydon's bad attitude got him ousted from Pistol,\u00a0a six-part series about his own band directed by Danny Boyle. "John picks and chooses when he wants to be a punk. If it suits him one day, he will be Johnny Rotten and otherwise, he is John Lydon," said Jordan Mooney in an interview with The Sun. Mooney, a model who has been termed a "muse" for the band, had a few more words to say about Lydon's attitude: "He would just be a saboteur and he wouldn\u2019t bring much to the table,\u201d she told\u00a0The Sun. \u201cJohn argues for the sake of arguing. He\u2019s a difficult person and I can\u2019t say that part of him has changed at all.\u201d She added, "As he\u2019s got older, he\u2019s only got more difficult \u2013 he\u2019s contrary\u2026 John has got a few issues about his importance in the world so him not being involved is the best thing that can happen." Mooney's story forms a key part of the new TV drama. The FX series\u00a0Pistol\u00a0is\u00a0based on guitarist Steve Jones\u2019 2018 memoir\u00a0Lonely Boy: Tales from a Sex Pistol, but Lydon had strong opinions on not being consulted about choices.\u00a0\u201cI think that\u2019s the most disrespectful shit I\u2019ve ever had to endure," Lydon said. "I mean, they went to the point to hire an actor to play me but what\u2019s the actor working on? Certainly not my character. It can\u2019t go anywhere else .\u201d The series still has no release date but it began filming last month. Lydon's complaints didn't land him a role; Anson Boon will still be staring as the frontman, alongside Louis Partridge as late bassist\u00a0Sid Vicious. In her Sun interview, Monney concluded.\u201cJohn has got a few issues about his importance in the world, so him not being involved is the best thing that can happen.\u00a0Probably the rest of the band are more true to themselves."
