Machine Gun Kelly channels Tommy Lee in upcoming Motley Crue biopic.
Machine Gun Kelly is no stranger to the theatrical. While the rapper still remains glued to the sh*t-list of many-a-Stan, it would appear that Kelly's grind has only gotten stronger. From breaking bread at the Roc Nation brunch to popping up in the Netflix original Bird Box, everything seems to be coming up Machine Gun. Now, it would appear he's lining up one of his biggest roles to date in Motley Crue biopic The Dirt. Come March 22nd, Kelly will officially be picking up the sticks for his portrayal of notorious drummer Tommy Lee.
Now, Netflix has released the first official trailer for the upcoming film, which provides a brief look at MGK in character. Now, you've been warned. Skin-tight leopard leotards may or may not be involved. Regardless, the film looks to be an interesting insight into one of the game's more controversial bands, another welcome addition to the ranks of popular music biopics. The film also stars Game Of Thrones alumni Iwan Rheon, Douglas Booth, and Daniel Webber as Crue's other members, Mick Mars, Nikki Six, and Vince Neil respectively.
From the look of it, the film seems heavy on the drugs, booze, and groupies, which seems in line with the Motley Crue modus operandi. Check out the trailer above, and sound off. Will you be tuning in to this one?
