Malin Akerman To Play Blondie Singer Debbie Harry In ‘CBGB’

The Watchmen star Malin Akerman will be performing her take on Foreigner’s “I Want To Know What Love Is” in the upcoming film Rock Of Ages. This role has gained her some attention and she is set to take on music legend and style icon Debbie Harry in CBGB; a film about the Country, BlueGrass, and Blues music club in Manhattan. Akerman joins the cast with Alan Rickman playing the club’s owner Hilly Kristal, and Rupert Grint as Dead Boys guitarist Cheetah Chrome.

Jody Savin (Bottle Shock) is writing the screenplay and Randall Miller (Bottle Shock) is directing and co-writing. The film is set to have cameras rolling next month.

Are you excited about or interested in seeing this film? Do you think Malin will do this iconic role justice?
