The Randall Miller written/directed indie film CBGB is shaping up to have a pretty solid looking cast, with Malin Akerman
recently brought on board to join Alan Rickman and Rupert Grint in the
film, which tells the story of the legendary New York music venue. And
now it looks like one of the stars of CBS' The Big Bang Theory is set to join the cast.
CBGB was a club in New York City, which played host to some notable
bands during the start of the American punk rock and new wave music
scene back in the mid-70's. Malin Akerman has been brought on board to
play Blondie lead singer Debbie Harry, while Alan Rickman will play CBGB
owner Hilly Kristal. And Rickman's former Harry Potter co-star
Rupert Grint is on board to play Dead Boys' guitarist Cheetah Chrome.
The latest bit of casting news for the film, according toDeadline, is that Johnny Galecki has signed on to play band manager Terry Ork.
It should be interesting to see how Galecki portrays the role of a band
manager in the film, and whether there's any comedy involved in the
role, considering that seems to be his area of expertise as an actor.
While he's currently known for his starring role as Leonard Hofstadter
in The Big Bang Theory, there are likely to be many of us who will always associate him with David, his character from Roseanne.
And going back even further, if Chevy Chase's Clark Griswold were to
yell "Russ!" loudly enough, Galecki might be among the guys to answer
the call (see also: Anthony Michael Hall, Ethan Embry and Jason Lively).
On a somewhat related note, Galecki isn't the only Big Bang Theory star to land a feature role recently. Earlier today, we shared the news that TBBT's Melissa Rauch was set to join the cast of You Are Here.
