RUSH Guitarist Featured In Irvine 'Welsh's Ecstasy' Film

According to a posting on the RUSH fan site RushIsABand.com, RUSH guitarist Alex Lifeson has a role in the new indie film "Irvine Welsh's Ecstasy". Alex will play the role of Dr. Michael Fig, a character created specifically for the film which does not appear in the book. Dr. Fig works in a mental hospital where Billy Boyd's character Woodsy is committed for a breakdown after consuming too much Ecstasy.

A video clip of Lifeson as Dr. Fig has been posted to the film's Facebook page.

"Irvine Welsh's Ecstasy" is slated to debut at the Toronto International Film Festival in September
