METALLICA Drummer, Girlfriend Interviewed On Danish TV; Video Available

An eight-minute interview with METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich and his live-in girlfriend, Danish actress Connie Nielsen, which aired on Tuesday (March 13) on the "Aftenshowet" program on the Danish TV channel Danmarks Radio 1 (DR1), is available for viewing online at (NOTE: The interview was conducted in Danish).

People magazine reported in December that Ulrich and Nielsen are expecting their first child together. The baby is due in the early summer.

Last year, the Danish-born, New York-based Nielsen, 42, appeared as Detective Dani Beck on NBC's "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit". She costarred with Russell Crowe in 2000's "Gladiator" and was last seen playing a journalist in Iraq in the February drama "The Situation".

She and Ulrich, 43, also a Denmark native, have been dating for more than two years.

Nielsen has a 16-year-old son, Sebastian, from a previous marriage; Ulrich is the father of sons Myles, 8, and Layne, 5, also from a previous marriage.

In 2005, Nielsen told People that dating Ulrich hadn't upped her rock credibility with her son. "He's not impressed whatsoever," she said. "It'd be better if (Lars) was a guy struggling to sell CDs out of a suitcase at Grand Central Station. But METALLICA? Not impressed."
