Metallica’s James Hetfield Cast In Movie About Serial Killer Ted Bundy

Metallica frontman James Hetfield will share the screen with Zac Efron in the upcoming Ted Bundy movie Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile. Joe Berlinger, who co-produced and directed Metallica: Some Kind of Monster and wrote Metallica: This Monster Lives, will helm the production that also stars Lily Collins, John Malkovich, Jim Parsons and Haley Joel Osment. Hetfield will play Bob Hayward, the veteran Utah Highway Patrolman who was the first officer to arrest Bundy in 1975, after pulling him over and discovering burglary tools in his car.  Hetfield has appeared on TV and in movies as himself, but this is his first acting role. Hetfield is also currently on the road with Metallica on their WorldWired tour.
