Randall Miller’s indie film CBGB has just added another cast member in the form of Malin Akerman. Akerman will be playing Debbie Harry, lead singer of the ground breaking band punk band Blondie, one of the many bands who got their start at the famed titular New York rock club. And as you can see from the picture above, I think that there is at least a passing resemblance.
Akerman will be joining Alan Rickman who still as CBGB’s owner Hilly Kristal and Rupert Grint co-staring as Dead Boys guitarist Cheetah Chrome.
This won’t be the first rock and roll tale Akerman will be in. She’s headlining the rock jukebox musical Rock Of Ages hitting theaters next month, though that is set a decade later than CBGB.
