According to SPIN magazine Christopher Walken has decided to make his next oddly awesome career move be playing the King of Darkness Ozzy Osbourne in the Motley Crue made-for-TV biopic.
Christopher Walken is famous for choosing out-there roles (dancing in the Fatboy Slim “Weapon of Choice” clip comes to mind), but he’s trying something completely different this time, playing Ozzy Osbourne in the forthcoming film version of the Motley Crüe autobiography, The Dirt.
I have to say, if 20 minutes ago you came up to me and said “Dude, what do you say you and I sit down and watch a made-for-TV movie about Motley Crue?” I would have told you “Do I look like Donald Rumsfeld? Trust me I have better things to do. What the hell are yo u doing in my apartment? How did you get in here? Who the hell are you and why aren’t you wearing pants?” But now I that I know the great (and by great I mean weird, and kind of scary) Walken will be playing the roll of Ozzy, this could get interesting.
…eh screw it. I still won’t watch it, unless its rainy and playing on VH1 in three years on a Sunday and I’m wearing a green shirt.
