Meet the Cast of Motley Crue’s ‘The Dirt’
The cast of Motley Crue's The Dirt comes to the movie with a diverse array of small- and big-screen credits. In the gallery below, we're taking a look at the actors who are playing some of the major roles in the film, which premieres on Netflix on March 22.
Of the four men portraying the members of the band, the one who is most likely to be familiar to U.S. audiences is Iwan Rheon, the Welsh actor who plays guitarist Mick Mars, thanks to his role as Ramsay Bolton on HBO's Game of Thrones. Another Brit, Douglas Booth, plays Nikki Sixx and gained fame in his native country when he played another heavily made-up '80s rock star, Boy George, in a 2010 BBC movie.
Machine Gun Kelly, who stars as Tommy Lee, made his name as a rapper, but has since branched out into acting. The movie's Vince Neil, Australia-born Daniel Webber, is no stranger to fans of streaming television, after playing Lee Harvey Oswald in 11.22.63 and Lewis Wilson in Netflix's adaptation of Marvel Comics' The Punisher.
Of the supporting actors, possibly the biggest star is Pete Davidson, the stand-up comedian and Saturday Night Live cast member who plays Tom Zutaut of Elektra Records.You may not know the names of David Costabile (Doc McGhee), Joe Chrest (Tommy Lee's father David) or Levin Rambin (Sharise Lee), but they've had roles in plenty of high-profile movie and television roles throughout their careers. There are also several actors for whom The Dirt looks to be their biggest part to date. Read about them below.
