Samuel L Jackson has decided to accept the role of Rob Halford in a new Judas Priest movie.
Just today, It was announced that Actor Samuel L Jackson will be playing Heavy Metal vocalist Rob Halford in a new Biopic movie about the band Judas Priest.
Building off the success of recent rock biopics such as Bohemian Rhapsody and Rocket Man, the timing seemed right for a new Judas Priest movie. Rob Halford added “Judas Priest has had a very interesting life. We’re one of the longest surviving working heavy metal acts and much of our lives have already been documented, but a lot of it hasn’t. I am a gay man leading a Heavy Metal Band for heavens sake! That right there screams for the silver screen. The groupie scenes should be very interesting.”
When first being approached with a rough draft of the script, Samuel L Jackson was quoted as saying…
WHO IN THE F*CK IS ROB HALFORD?
“Who the motherf*ck is Rob Halford? I don’t know a G*d damn thang about no Judas Priest! I listen to Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye and Aretha Franklin! ‘Chain Of Fools’, Now that’s my jam MotherF*$#er!” – Sam Jackson
“I also had to hide being a gay guy like Freddie Mercury for all those years,” says Halford who only publicly revealed his homosexuality in 1998. “It’s a wonderful moment when you walk out of the closet,” he told LGBT magazine. “Now I’ve done that and I’ve freed myself. It’s a great feeling for me to finally let go and make this statement.”
