Watch The First Footage Of James Hetfield’s Acting Debut In New Trailer
We’ve known for a while that Metallica frontman James Hetfield will star in Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil And Vile, a new film about the arrest and trial of brutal serial killer Ted Bundy. In the movie, Hetfield plays the Utah highway patrolman who first arrests the handsome, charismatic, and terrifyingly sadistic Bundy (played by Zac Efron).
Now, a trailer for the film has surfaced, including clips of James’ in his role. And while we don’t get any of his dialogue, he certainly looks convincing as a cop. The footage also shows off something people sometimes forget: Papa Het is a big, imposing man, the kind of dude you might not want to have leaning over you in an interrogation room.
Check out the trailer for the movie below. The film premieres this weekend at Sundance.
Last week Metallica played a surprise hometown show at San Francisco’s 500-capacity club The Independent – their first proper live gig in 738 days!
