Fred Durst Unveils Mockumentary Short Film 'The Truth'
Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst is a man of several talents. As well as his career in rock music, the singer has gained a reputation as a talented director. Now, in his capacity as a filmmaker, Durst has released a new mockumentary short film, titled "The Truth." As Loudwire reports, the film follows an evangelist known as Evan Jealous (portrayed by Durst) and also features guest appearances by Wes Borland and Mike Vallely.

In an interview with Noisey.com, Durst had the following to say about the movie:

"[It's about] the hard facts of life, the hard edges, the things that have a foundation to them in life. These are things you just have gut instincts about. I grew up in a place that was very religious. We would skateboard, do different things, but I saw the other side - my mother worked at a church, so I was around lots of people who were one way in church, but outside were in another reality."

On the character of Evan Jealous:

"[He's] a person who grew up like that, seeing both sides, realizing he had a way with words, the way he explained things to people, he changed their life. He's a product of his environment, but he doesn't know what he's doing. He doesn't know a thing about it. He really doesn't, at all, and he's not religious."

Watch the full movie below.
