The Tracking-Board is reporting Nickelodeon’s School Of Rock star Tony Cavalero is in talks to play Ozzy Osbourne in Netflix’s Mötley Crüe biopic The Dirt.
Best known for School Of Rock, Cavalero has also had recurring roles on Hart of Dixie and the digital series Aim High. He can currently be seen alongside Adam Devine, Alexandra Daddario and Robbie Amell in the Netflix movie When We First Met.
As the long-gestating Mötley Crüe biopic The Dirt heads toward a February production start, the film is in the home sweet home stretch of securing the leads who will play the iconic hair metal band, reports Borys Kit of The Hollywood Reporter.
Game Of Thrones actor Iwan Rheon and The Punisher actor Daniel Webber are in negotiations to star as guitarist Mick Mars and frontman Vince Neil, respectively.
If the deals go through, the actors will join Douglas Booth, who is on board as Nikki Sixx, and Machine Gun Kelly, who is due to play drummer Tommy Lee, in the movie based on the best-selling autobiography written by the band and author Neil Strauss.
