Taylor Hawkins as Iggy Pop in 'CBGB' Movie
The first photo of Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins playing Iggy Pop in a forthcoming "CBGB" movie has surfaced online. Hawkins and a range of other famous names will appear as their punk heroes in the movie after shooting it last year with director Randall Miller. The movie will track the history of the legendary New York punk venue which launched the careers of the Ramones, Blondie, Patti Smith and others who went on to influence the rock and pop worlds. Other key figures from the CBGBs scene like club owner Hily Kristal, to be played by Alan Rickman who played Snape in the "Harry Potter" movies, will also be portrayed to tell the whole story of how their exciting sub-scuture spilled out into the wider world. No official release date has been set for the movie, but it's expected to appear in theaters this year. See the image featuring Malin Akerman as Blondie's Debbie Harry and Taylor Hawkins as Iggy Pop below:
