In terms of the movie cast, WAAF 107.3 reported as follows on January 23, 2018:
“Machine Gun Kelly as Tommy Lee
Kelly (real name Colson Baker) may have rose to fame as a rapper, but don’t let that fool you. He’s also a very talented actor, appearing in films such as Beyond the Lights, Nerve, Viral and the television series Roadies. The two are both lanky collectors of body ink and thanks to his hip-hop background, Kelly will also be the keeper of the beat by learning the drums for the role!
Douglas Booth as Nikki Sixx
English actor Douglas Booth isn’t foreign to the concept of portraying a rock icon. After all, he played the role of Culture Club frontman Boy George in the BBC film Worries About the Boy. Booth‘s other acting credits include Great Expectations, Jupiter Ascending, Loving Vincent and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.
Daniel Webber as Vince Neil
Much like his co-star Booth, Webber is also familiar with playing the role of famous/infamous figures. The Aussie actor portrayed Lee Harvey Oswald in 11.22.63, the film adaptation of Stephen King‘s time-travel novel about a teacher’s efforts to prevent the assassination of John F. Kennedy. Webber can also be seen in the smash NETFLIX series The Punisher as the mentally disturbed Lewis Wilson.
Iwan Rheon as Mick Mars
If there’s anyone that can play a character known for their notoriety, look no futher than Iwan Rheon. Recognized for his role as the sadistic Ramsay Bolton from HBO‘s Game of Thrones, Rheon is also a talented musician himself, releasing his debut EP Dinard in 2015.”
