Metallica Radio

Lars Ulrich has landed a role in a new movie about the first Afghan rock band. It's unclear exactly what part the Metallica drummer will be playing in Radio Dreams, but there's a good chance he's playing himself. 

The film from Iranian director Babak Jalali tells the story of a radio writer who tries to bring Metallica and Afghan band Kabul Dreams together for a face-to-face meeting. 

Production started last month in San Francisco, and fans can see shots of Ulrich on set on the Radio Dreams Facebook page. The film is expected to hit theaters sometime next year.
