After news broke this week that rapper Machine Gun Kelly was cast as Tommy Lee in the film adaptation of Motley Crue’s The Dirt, it looks like we finally have the whole band cast.

In an exclusive to The Hollywood Reporter, Iwan Rheon (from HBO’s Game of Thrones) is set to be portraying Mick Mars and Daniel Webber from Netflix’s The Punisher will be playing Vince Neil.    So far, however, these actors haven’t signed on officially but are in negotiations.

Joining Kelly as Lee is Jupiter Ascending’ s Douglas Booth as Nikki Sixx.  As of now, these are the only two actors confirmed.

While we’re sure makeup and wardrobe will be critical to the actor’s transformation, we’re still very curious about the content of the film version of The Dirt.  The film will be a Netflix original, but if you’ve read The Dirt (and if you haven’t, SHAME!), you know things get very raunchy and decadent.
