Metallica's Lars Ulrich Keeping His Day Job
"Music is my main thing, so heading away to a place like, say, Iceland for a shoot would never work for me," Ulrich told USA Today, while he was taking a break from rehearsal for summer concerts in Europe and the U.S., including Metallica's debut Orion Music + More festival. "But this was Phil [Kaufman, director], this was San Francisco, and this was six weeks total. No-brainer."
As for his HBO acting role, Ulrich plays Dutch documentarian Joris Ivens, whose work chronicling the Spanish Civil War attracted Ernest Hemingway and Martha Gellhorn (played by Clive Owen and Nicole Kidman) to the Iberian Peninsula in the late the 1930s. more on this story
