Metallica frontman James Hetfield is turning over a new leaf, entering the world of cinema. He is set to appear as highway patrolman Bob Hayward in the film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, And Vile, director Joe Berlinger’s chronicle of the relationship between serial killer Ted Bundy and his girlfriend. As Blabbermouth reports:
While Hetfield has played himself in other films and TV productions, along with doing voiceover work, this will be his first dramatic role in a live-action feature film.
In a statement Berlinger said:
I have experienced (Hetfield’s) charisma and powerful presence close up. It seemed only natural that he would bring that same power and magnetism to a dramatic role.
And there you have it.
