First Photos Of GODSMACK Frontman From 'Army Of The Damned'

GODSMACK singer Sully Erna will make his feature film acting debut in an upcoming movie called "Army Of The Damned". The movie follows the crew of a hit reality TV series who follow a team of local cops in a small town. When the cops are summoned to a house on a "domestic disturbance" call, they suddenly are faced with a situation in which they either must survive or join the "army of the damned," a horde of warriors from hell. The film begins production on April 22 and is directed by Tom DeNucci.

Erna has been taking part in rehearsals and some of the first photos from the film with the singer in his role have been posted on the film's Facebook page. Check them out below.

The cast also includes horror legend Michael Berryman from "The Hills Have Eyes", pro wrestler Tommy Dreamer, TNT wrestling diva Thea Trinidad, Joey Fatone of N*SYNC fame and Jackie Moore, who appeared on "Homeland" and "30 Rock".

Although New England native Erna has spent time in Los Angeles to pursue film opportunities, he told The Pulse Of Radio he's not a fan of the town. "The people out there are just, they're not real people to me, and I'm sorry I have to be so blunt with this sometimes, but most people that I meet out there, they're just — everybody's a struggling actor or director, or they think they're bigger than they are," he said. "The first words that come out of everybody's mouth out west is, 'What do you do for work and what kind of car do you drive?' So I usually tell them that I'm a garbage man and I drive, like, a Kia."

Other hard rockers who have done acting jobs in recent years include METALLICA's Lars Ulrich, KORN's Jonathan Davis and SLIPKNOT's Shawn "Clown" Crahan.

Erna recently played six solo shows on the East Coast, beginning on March 22 in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

The concerts featured songs from the entire span of Erna's career, including GODSMACK tracks and tunes from his 2010 debut solo album, "Avalon".

GODSMACK has also booked some scattered festival dates this summer.
