Yes, Billy Boyd is a good candidate for the role of Rory.
Here, the main thing is not so much similarity of appearance as the skill and talent of the actor to reflect the essence and the inner world of Rory, the actor must "grab" the zest of Rory.

I already wrote a bit about Billy before here, but here's another video for example:
~Information is not knowledge. Knowledge is not wisdom. Wisdom is not truth. Truth is not beauty. Beauty is not love. Love is not music.

If a movie had been made about 5-10 years ago maybe GWYN ASHTON could have played Rory (or if Gwyn can't act he maybe could have just performed the 'on stage' live shots of Rory in action!).

Usually movies about ''rock stars'' only usually tend to 'gloss over' the main parts of a performer's life story to fit into the 90-120 mins standard length of movie running time.

PHIL LYNOTT (ex-Thin Lizzy & Grand Slam) was lined up to play JIMI HENDRIX for a proposed movie of the late guitarist's life story back in 1980 but (thankfully) the movie was never made.
