Metallica frontman James Hetfield has joined the ensemble cast of the upcoming thriller Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, And Vile. The film follows the relationship between notorious serial killer Ted Bundy, played by Zac Efron, and his longtime girlfriend, played by Lily Collins, who at the time had no knowledge of Bundy’s crimes. Hetfield will play officer Bob Hayward, a Utah highway patrol veteran who was the first law enforcement officer to arrest Bundy in 1975. While Hetfield has played himself in other films and TV productions, along with doing voiceover work, this will be his first dramatic role in a live-action feature film. Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, And Vile is in production now and is being directed by Joe Berlinger, one of the co-directors of the 2004 documentary Metallica: Some Kind Of Monster.
