You Might Be Familiar With The Cast Of Motley Crue’s Biopic ‘The Dirt’

If you’ve ever wanted to see the trials and tribulations of a global rock act. The Dirt has you covered. Releasing on Netflix, this film follows the climb of platinum selling band Motley Crue. Finding people to play these rock legends was a task. Luckily, these individuals simply nailed it.

Girls, Girls, Girls

Following some smaller acting gigs, rapper Machine Gun Kelly impressed everyone with his performance in Netflix’s Bird Box. For Kelly, whose real name is Richard Baker, The Dirt is a gamechanger. “Tommy Lee was the first role where I had to just become somebody else. I need to be pushed a little bit with larger roles and more dynamics in a character,” he told USA Today.

Shout At The Devil

Playing Vince Neil is Daniel Webber, who originally got his start as a trampolinist at the Summer Olympics. In 2016, he gained fame in North America with his portrayal of Lee Harvey Oswald in Hulu’s 11.22.63. Landing the role of the iconic vocalist was something that elevated his performance.”It was a role that was very expressive and, just let me grow as an artist and grow as a performer. That can be a hard thing to wait for, but I think it’s an essential,” he told Instinct Culture.

Bark At The Moon

Since 2006, Tony Cavalero has appeared in Hart of DixieAim High, and School of Rock. For his biggest role to date, the Virginia native will play Ozzy Osbourne in the film. In 1983, Osbourne catapulted Motley Crue’s popularity by throwing them on his Bark at the Moon World Tour.

Kickstart My Heart

Iwan Rheon, who plays guitarist Mick Mars, has been performing music since he was 16. Following a string of EPs, he unveiled his debut album Dinard in 2015. His acting career, which includes roles in Misfits and Game of Thrones, put his music on hold. Being able to rock out again was completely satisfying. “We spent three weeks learning the songs as a band and reproduced the live stuff so it could look as authentic as possible, which was really good fun,” he told The Hot Corn.

Theater Of Pain

Douglas Booth, who plays bassist Nikki Sixx, knows a thing or two about portraying music icons. In 2010, he portrayed Boy George in the biopic Worried About the Boy. While having drinks, Booth joyfully bit the arm of The Dirt filmmaker Jeff Tremaine. “As soon as Doug bit the director, we knew that it was going to be a ride,” Machine Gun Kelly told Billboard. During the 1984 Monsters of Rock Tour in Europe, Sixx went around biting random people.
