Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins will be portraying Iggy Pop in the upcoming film, "CBGB".

There's a good chance that his part is small, and he was cast in part because he somewhat resembles the Stooges rocker in his prime.

Other parts in the film have been cast as well, including "The Borgias" actress Mickey Sumner as Patti Smith, "The Big Bang Theory" star Johnny Galecki as Television manager Terry Ork, Malin Akerman as Blondie singer Debbie Harry and Rupert Grint as Dead Boys guitarist Cheetah Chrome. Alan Rickman will star as Hilly Kristal, the owner of the famous punk rock club.
