U2 Drummer to Make Acting Debut in New Movie

Interscope Records(LOS ANGELES) -- Bono and The Edge are usually the members of U2 who grab all the headlines, but this time, it's their drummer, Larry Mullen, Jr. who's making some news.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, he's making his movie debut as an actor -- as well as a producer and composer -- of a new movie called Man on the Train, which will be unveiled at the Cannes Film Festival next month.  The movie, a remake of a 2002 French film, stars Donald Sutherland as a retired small-town schoolteacher who crosses paths with a guy, played by Larry, who's planning to rob a local bank.

Bono has done some acting himself: he appeared uncredited in a 2000 film called The Million Dollar Hotel and played Dr. Robert in the 2007 Beatles-inspired film Across the Universe.  He also played himself in a 2005 episode of Entourage.
