Haha, really? Did they think of him because of “For Whom The Bell Tolls,” the Metallica song inspired by Ernest Hemingway‘s novel of the same name?

Frankly, if Lars is pursuing a movie career, I have two movies I’d like to see him in. One — A full length feature adaptation of “Napster Bad.” Two — The Robocop reboot. Look at that photo above and tell me he doesn’t look like Murphy. Your move, creep.
