METALLICA'S Lars Ulrich Says That He Took His 'Hemingway & Gellhorn' Acting Role 'Very Seriously' - May 24, 2012
METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich has a role in the HBO film "Hemingway & Gellhorn", which is scheduled to premiere on Monday, May 28 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. After appearing as himself in the 2004 documentary "Metallica: Some Kind Of Monster" and the 2010 comedy "Get Him To The Greek", Ulrich plays an actual character in this film, which is a fictionalized account of the relationship between author Ernest Hemingway and war correspondent Martha Gellhorn. The couple are played by Clive Owen and Nicole Kidman, while Ulrich portrays Dutch documentarian Joris Ivens.
Ulrich told USA Today that while he enjoys appearing in movies, he's not interested in pursuing a full-fledged acting career.
"I don't have big acting career aspirations, but I love dabbling in different processes," he said. "I wasn't chasing this, but I couldn't say no."
He added, "I took it very seriously. I studied the difference between how a Dutch person would say things in English and the way I would as a Dane. Most people couldn't tell the difference, but I can. And it needed to be right."
Ulrich said that he enjoyed his acting foray, but feels more at home with his first love.
"In a movie, you are a tool serving the director's vision, and that's as it should be. But in the world of music, I get to help make the decisions," he said.
METALLICA is also getting into the movie business on its own, producing its own 3D film to be directed by Nimród Antal, best known for the movie "Predators".
The movie, which will be some sort of combination of concert footage and storyline, will begin shooting this August and is tentatively scheduled to arrive in theatres in the summer of 2013.
