Metallica's James Hetfield Makes His Acting Debut

We'll get to see a different side of James Hetfield this year...clean cut and...a cop.

Hetfield makes his acting debut later this year as Office Bob Hayward in the Ted Bundy true crime story, "Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile".

You can spot Hetfield in the trailer for the Bundy film rumoured to be released on Netflix later this year. (via Collider)

It's quite an important role as well as Utah Highway Patrolman Hayward was the arresting officer for Bundy, leading to his eventual execution in 1989 for the murder of at least 30 women.

So, why this movie??

Director Joe Berlinger also directed the controversial 2004 Metallica documentary Some Kind of Monster. (via Ultimate Classic Rock)

"Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile" also stars Zac Efron, KIm Parsons and John Malkovich.
