DEF LEPPARD SINGER AS DEAD ROCK STAR LEON ON DARK REALM:
March 30, 2009
In 2000, Def Leppard vocalist Joe Elliot had a brief stint as an actor on the fantasy/horror show “DARK REALM”, when he played a dead rock star named Leon, alongside Corey Feldman (“The Lost Boys”, “The Goonies”). For years, Def Leppard fans have tried to find the episode, called “JOHNNY’S GUITAR”, without much luck. Although it was widely known that Joe had made his first steps toward an acting career, it seemed like the show was never broadcast anywhere in the Western world and so the number of Def Leppard fans who actually saw it, was not very big.
Until now! Chiller, a cable channel owned by NBC/Universal, is currently showing Dark Realm, and “Johnny’s Guitar” finally made it to North American TVs. Check out some of these, erm, “highlights” — the scenes in which Joe shines!
