Metallica Frontman To Make Acting Debut

James Hetfield has signed on to appear in a new thriller about notorious serial killer Ted Bundy.

Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, And Vile will star Zac Efron as Bundy and Lily Collins as Bundy’s longtime girlfriend, who at the time had no idea of his crimes. Hetfield will play officer Bob Hayward, a Utah highway patrol officer who was the first law enforcement officer to arrest Bundy back in 1975.

According to Loudwire, they believe Hetfield landed the role because of his relationship with director Joe Berlinger, co-directed the Metallica documentary Some Kind of Monster. The two have had a good relationship since the filming of that movie.

The film also stars John Malkovich, Jim Parsons, & Haley Joel Osment.

Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile is currently in production
