James Hetfield to make real acting debut in serial killer thriller
Metallica star James Hetfield has joined the cast of Zac Efron's new Ted Bundy thriller Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile.
The heavy rocker will portray Bob Hayward, the first police officer to arrest the serial killer.
Hayward pulled Bundy over for a driving infraction in Utah in 1975 and discovered odd tools in his car.
The suspicious cop wisely decided to investigate further.
The role will be Hetfield's first real acting experience - previously he has portrayed himself in TV and movie projects.
The film's director, Joe Berlinger, previously took charge of Metallica's acclaimed rock documentary Metallica: Some Kind of Monster and also wrote a book about the band.
