Dave Grohl could be set to star in Bill & Ted: Face The Music.The highly-anticipated sequel, which will see Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves reprise their roles as the titular Bill and Ted, is set for cinemas on 23 September. Now, according to Rolling Stone, the Foo Fighters frontman could be set for a brief cameo as himself along with a few other names in music.
The title is featured on Dave Grohl's IMDb profile under his acting credits, as well on Bill &Ted: Face The Music's full cast list, which also suggests US rapper Kid Cudi will appear as himself in the film. Watch the official trailer of Bill & Ted Face the music here: That's not where the rock star connections to the film end, either as the likes of Weezer, Cold War Kids, Lamb of God and Mastodon are expected on the soundtrack. Listen to Weezer's Beginning of the End (Wyld Stallyns Radio Edit) for the film: WATCH: Dave Grohl surprises fan during Grohlathon livestream Meanwhile, Foo Fighters have decided to go back in time for a good cause. The Learn To Fly rockers are selling the limited edition original Roswell Alien design tee to celebrate their show at the Jambalaya Club in California on February 23 1995 and their gig at Kings College London on 3 June 1995. Proceeds from the sale of the garment in the United States will go towards the National Independent Venue Association and the #saveourstages campaign, while UK proceeds will go towards the #saveourvenues campaign in the UK.
Now, this is all well and good - and we can't wait to see the movie - but unless an on-demand date is also released soon, then the UK is getting a little short changed. That's because near the tail-end of July, it was revealed that the movie would be available in the US 1 September and would be able to watch at home on that day as well. Bill & Ted Face The Music isn't the only big movie to head to the cinemas first, despite Covid-19 fears. Chris Nolan's Tenet will be debuting on the big screen in the UK from 26 August. The official synopsis for Bill & Ted Face The Music is as follows: "Directed by Dean Parisot with returning franchise writers Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon and starring Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter, Bill & Ted Face The Music will continue to track the time-traveling exploits of William Bill S.
Watch and see. Whoa! So while the great George Carlin is sadly no longer with us, his Bill & Ted legacy lives on in the form of Rufus' daughter. That's fitting, since as we already knew, in Face the Music the middle-aged Bill (Alex Winter) and Ted (Keanu Reeves) have their own lookalike daughters who're around Kelly's age (played by Samara Weaving and Brigette Lundy-Paine) and will become unlikely heroes just like their dads. The trailers look awesome, the soundtrack – featuring Weezer, Mastodon and Lamb Of God – looks awesome, and now eagle-eyed users of IMDB will notice that the cameos for Bill & Ted Face The Music look awesome as well. That is: if you look it up, you'll see on the movie page and Dave Grohl's own page that the Foo Fighters frontman is down to play himself. Sadly, no other details have been made available, but hopefully it'll be as good as his three-second appearance in The X-Files… A new clip has also been released ahead of the movie's release on August 28. While the new film will see the return of all our favorite characters, including not just Bill & Ted, but also Death, there will be at least one beloved character missing. George Carlin is no longer with us and so Rufus, the man who really started it all by giving Bill and Ted their first quest will also be gone. We've seen in the trailer for Face the Music that Kristen Schaal will be playing a new character who will be Bill and Ted's shepherd this time around, and in a new clip we learn a bit more about who the character is, and yes, she's connected to Rufus. Check it out.
