Mötley Crüe Guitarist Mick Mars Wants Seth Green to Play Him in "The Dirt" Movie
In the new issue of Revolver—which is on newsstands now and available online here—we interview Nikki Sixx and Mick Mars, whose band, Mötley Crüe, took home the inaugural Ronnie James Dio Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2011 Golden Gods show in Los Angeles last month. During the course of our chat, we asked Mars what actor he would like to see play him in the much rumored movie adaptation of Crüe's bestselling 2001 autobiography, The Dirt. His answer surprised us...
"This is gonna sound really strange: I think that Seth Green would probably play me more like me than anyone else. He’s not a very tall person, like I am, and he’s kind of off-kilter–he’s warped a lit bit. [Laughs] I think he’s very deadly serious about the stuff he does when he does act, and he’s kind of a comedian–I’m kind of a goof-off, too."
