    Default Val Kilmer to play Diamond Dave

    http://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/story?id=2632446

    Motley Crue's 'The Dirt' Gears Up for Wild Rock Film

    LAS VEGAS, Nov. 6, 2006 — Hide the Bats! Christopher Walken has agreed to play the ultimate bad-boy rocker — Ozzy Osbourne..

    Motley Crue lead singer Vince Neil told ABC News Radio in an exclusive interview that the 63-year-old Oscar-winning actor will make a cameo appearance as Osbourne in "The Dirt," a movie based on the band's controversial 2001 autobiography.

    "How funny is that going to be," Neil told ABC's Al Mancini at the Opening of Vince Neil Ink, the singer's new tattoo parlor in Las Vegas.

    Walken's press representatives did not immediately return a call to ABCNEWS.com for comment.

    "The Dirt: Confessions of the World's Most Notorious Rock Band" set new limits in tell-all confessionals. The 448-page tome catalogues the drug and alcohol abuse, nasty infighting, and sex parties of Neil and band mates Tommy Lee, Mick Mars and Nikki Sixx.

    The film, announced in April, is now in preproduction and is expected to be released in 2008 by Paramount and MTV. It's been billed as a true-life version of "This Is Spinal Tap."

    Kilmer to Play Diamond Dave

    Osbourne toured with Motley Crue and was friends with the band, and his antics, as recounted in the book, include snorting a line of live ants (while looking for a fix of cocaine) and taking LSD every day for a year "just to see what would happen."

    Neil says that other stars are going to appear in the film as rock stars, including Val Kilmer as David Lee Roth. "We're doing big, giant cameos with those people," he says.

    As for Neil and his Crue, they'll be played by unknowns.

    Ah, a Doors ala Stone reference. Boo ya. Just watched that the other night again for the first time in a while. Great flick.

    I wonder, has Van Halen lost all chances at a great biopic?

    Scorsese's Mean Streets notwithstanding. Ugh. Van Halen puns never fly.

    That was actually a reference to The Doors movie, since Kevin Dillon played John Densmore to Val Kilmer's Jim Morrision.


    I do like your choice though.

    I've thought this before too.

    Val Kilmer is only about six years younger than DLR. Does this not make sense to anybody else?

    Ahhh, saw it once. Didn't remember anyone in that flick other than Kilmer and Meg Ryan was in it too right?

    Christopher Walken as Ozzy.....umm....ok Do you think ozzy will need cowbell too?

    They look nothing alike!

    I guess Val Kilmer could do Dave, but how does Dave fit in with the Dirt? let alone, Motley Crue?

    According to the book, Dave used to hang and snort coke with 'em at their crash pad on the Sunset strip.

    Yeah, wasn't there something about a big mirror falling off a closet door and breaking against Dave and he never noticed?

    Given the description of that place its hard for me to imagine DLR would have wanted to hang out there since he had already "made it".

    Val Kilmer on the Mark and Brian Los Angeles radio show this morning completely denied even knowing about the DLR role.

    He said he had never been asked, and was not considering the role. He said the news was completely false. Mark and Brian asked him if he could sue the people responsible for the press release.

    Then they muttered it happens all the time in Hollywood.

    Owen Wilson would be a good "Dave". IMO.

    Val Kilmner is too fat these days.

    I don't see the Walken/Ozzy thing at all. Sounds like the whole thing is BS.
