"James Hetfield is the shit!”

James Hetfield can add 'kick-ass actor' to his list of skills after being praised for his role in the Ted Bundy thriller Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile.

Lead actor Zac Efron, who plays Bundy in the movie, appeared on Jimmy kimmel Live! where he was asked about working with Metallica's frontman. Efron said:

“He comes on the set – and it's one of the more pivotal moments. It's the moment that Ted actually got caught for the first time. He ran a stop sign and James Hetfield plays the policeman that picks him up."

“James Hetfield, to his credit, he came and absolutely nailed the part – he just crushed it. It's like he’s been acting his own life. He had no fear. He did a great job. 

I was ready to maybe give James Hetfield a tip, but he didn't ask for a single one. James Hetfield is the shit!

“When I got pulled over by James Hetfield, it was like a dream come true!”
