As casting continues for Motley Crue’s biopic ‘The Dirt,’ news has just been released that the latest to join the party is Tony Cavalero who has been cast as Ozzy Osbourne.
The tell-all autobiography recently announced it’s main leads – those playing the band members. Rapper Machine Gun Kelly has been cast as drummer Tommy Lee, English actor Douglas Booth as bassist Nikki Sixx, Daniel Webber (‘The Punisher’) as Vince Neil, and Iwan Rheon (‘Game of Thrones‘) as Mick Mars.
Playing a monumental figure like Osbourne is a fascinating role for anyone. It should also provide an interesting challenge for Cavalero who previously played Jack Black’s character in ‘School Of Rock.’
Although no script has been released, one of the highlights will likely be Crue’s time on tour when the opened for Osbourne, sharing many stories like those they revealed on their episode of ‘Behind the Music.’
