    Josh (Drake & Josh) Peck To Play Wolfgang in Van Halen Bio Pic

    Nickelodeon Star To Play Wolfgang Van Halen in Van Halen Movie
    Source: Variety





    Hollywood, California. Nickelodeon star Josh Peck of the popular "tween" sitcom Drake and Josh has signed on for an upcoming bio-pic of the recently reunited rock band, Van Halen.

    Peck, 21, will be playing Edward Van Halen's son Wolfgang, who at age 16 was recently announced to replace founding bassist Michael Anthony for the group's first tour in 23 years with original vocalist David Lee Roth.

    Production for the film is set to go before cameras this December for release in the Fall of 2008, written and directed by Uwe Bolle.

    Details for the film have been shrouded in secrecy until the recent negotiations with Peck to portray Wolfgang. Production for Peck's hit sticom Drake & Josh have been put on hiatus until filming for "Van Halen" is complete. Sources say that the producers are seeking "big names" to portray Edward Van Halen, his brother Alex, Van Halen's ex-wife Valerie Bertinelli, and erstwhile singer David Lee Roth. No word yet if the biopic will tackle the mediocre "Van Hagar" years.

    One must admit, the post has a bit of inspired lunacy to it...to wit:

    "Production for the film is set to go before cameras this December for release in the Fall of 2008, written and directed by Uwe Bolle."

    From Uwe Boll Is The Antichrist Website (I'm not shitting you, there is one! )
    http://www.uwebollisantichrist.com/

    "Uwe Boll Is Antichrist!
    Welcome to UweBollIsAntichrist.com. If you've come this far, chances are pretty
    good that you know who Uwe Boll are, and that you dislike him. If you don't know
    who Uwe Boll is, let us summarize it: Uwe Boll is a german director and producer who
    recently started his quest to destroy the video game industry by producing some of
    the worst movies ever. In 2003, House of the Dead was released, based on
    the arcade shooter by SEGA. The movie quickly found it's way to the Internet
    Movie Database over the 100 worst films of all time, currently residing at 33th
    place. This didn't stop Uwe, who now decided that his next victim was going to be
    the classic Alone in the Dark. Not only is the recently released movie a
    mockery to the intelligence of any audience, it's a direct insult to the game that
    it's "based" on. How one could POSSIBLY make such a bad movie out of such a good
    concept is beyond human knowledge. Alone in the Dark is currently residing
    at place 16 on IMDB's top 100 list of the 100 worst films in history...

    It's certainly BS. His link to "Variety" goes to Mike's site, folks.

    Besides that, Josh has lost a bunch of weight and looks nothing like that, now. (I have a third grade girl in my house, this is how I know). And Drake is cool.
