A rapper from Cleveland has been cast as Tommy Lee in the movie version of Motley Crue's The Dirt.
Machine Gun Kelly -- real name Colson Baker -- is the first announced cast member for the Netflix project. Kelly tweeted that he "got the movie to hire my little bro as my drum teacher. Kept it in the family. I WILL learn the drums...before we start filming."
The film, directed by Jeff Tremaine, just went into pre-production and is expected to start shooting in late February.
