Historical Figures and the Metal Musicians Who Could Play Them
As you’ve likely heard by now, Metallica’s James Hetfield has been cast as Robert Hayward, the cop who first arrested Ted Bundy, in the upcoming film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile, which will star High School Musical‘s Zac Efron as the infamous serial killer.
