According to Zac Efron, Metallica’s James Hetfield didn’t need any acting tips for his debut acting role in Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil And Vile.
Hetfield plays Bob Hayward, the first cop who arrested Bundy. Efron went on Jimmy Kimmel’s show and praised Hetfield for “absolutely nailing” the role. “He comes on the set, and it’s one of the more pivotal moments. It’s the moment that Ted actually got caught for the first time. He ran a stop sign and James Hetfield plays the policeman that picks him up.”
“James Hetfield, to his credit, he came in and absolutely nailed the part – he just crushed it,” he continued. “You’d think he’d been acting his own life. He had no fear. He did a great job. I was ready to maybe give James Hetfield a tip, but he didn’t ask for a single one. James Hetfield is the shit… he’s just, like, been through it all.”
