Casting Couch: Motley Crue
ABC News reports there will be some left-field cameos in The Dirt, the movie adaptation of Motley Crue’s 2001 best seller, to be directed by Larry Charles (Borat!).
Hide the Bats! Christopher Walken has agreed to play the ultimate bad-boy rocker ? Ozzy Osbourne.
The Dirt: Confessions of the World’s Most Notorious Rock Band set new limits in tell-all confessionals. The 448-page tome catalogues the drug and alcohol abuse, nasty infighting, and sex parties of Neil and band mates Tommy Lee, Mick Mars and Nikki Sixx.
Osbourne toured with Motley Crue and was friends with the band, and his antics, as recounted in the book, include snorting a line of live ants (while looking for a fix of cocaine) and taking LSD every day for a year “just to see what would happen.”
Neil says that other stars are going to appear in the film as rock stars, including Val Kilmer as David Lee Roth. “We’re doing big, giant cameos with those people,” he says.
The band members, however, will be played by unknowns. No fun! Who do you see as Vince, Nikki, Mick and Tommy?
