While the Tom Petty duet with Stevie Nicks isn’t among the 80′s most iconic videos, it’s a video that has music, therefore Jimmy Fallon must parody it. What’s most interesting about this “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around” video isn’t that it’s funny or particularly good. It’s not really much of either.

But it continues to demonstrate HOW MUCH Jimmy Fallon loves dressing up and mimicking other rockers on both his previous show and on Tonight.

Ok. Stevie Nicks is pretty badass in this.

7 Awkward Rock Star Cameos http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/7-awkward-rock-star-cameos/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/7-awkward-rock-star-cameos/#comments Thu, 01 Sep 2011 22:11:46 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=226921 They'll have to find comfort in their Grammy Awards.

There are many well-known musicians and rock stars who have been able to parlay their fame into successful acting careers. Then there are others who have not. In fact, thereare a few that have had trouble even playing themselves. In other cases, the performances are awesome but their cameos are just so out of left field that it’s awkward to watch.

Here a seven rock stars who won’t win any acting prizes and will have to find comfort in their Grammy Awards and throngs of screaming fans.

Gwar, Empire Records

If you give it a good listen, this one doesn’t fall on Gwar’s shoulders. They actually redubbed the voice of Oderus Urungus because, “I refused to do the stupid lines they had so they just took out my voice and put in what they needed. I had no idea until I saw it!”

It’s too bad the other rock and roll stars on this list can’t say the same.

The Ramones, Rock N’ Roll High School

As awesome as The Ramones are, they should stick to drunkenly stumbling about the stage and recording studio, not a film set.

Tom Petty, The Postman

Of course, Tom Petty survives the apocalypse and goes on to manage a settlement. And I’m not talking about Tom Petty playing a guy who manages a settlement. I’m talking about Tom Petty playing Tom Petty managing a settlement.  I guess it’s not that far fetched when you consider how he kept the Heartbreakers in line all those years.

Tom Petty’s Daughter To Direct ‘Saw’- Er, I Mean ‘Suffocate’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/tom-pettys-daughter-to-direct-saw-er-i-mean-suffocate/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/tom-pettys-daughter-to-direct-saw-er-i-mean-suffocate/#comments Mon, 07 Mar 2011 18:00:47 +0000 Dave Horwitz http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=102521 Adria Petty, daughter of singer songwriter Tom Petty, is slated to direct a horror/thriller about some people and a house and some booby traps and stuff.

Adria Petty, daughter of singer songwriter Tom Petty, is an up and coming filmmaker. She recently directed the documentary Paris, Not France, and is now set to direct Radar Pictures’ upcoming thriller Suffocate, penned by Ben Olson. In addition to the doc, Petty has previously directed numerous music videos for artists like Beyonce and Regina Spektor, and directed commercials for Target, Converse, and McDonald’s.

The synopsis of the film, which makes it sound a lot like an A&E reality show combined with the Saw series, is as follows:

“Suffocate is a thriller about a group of city workers who enter a hoarder’s condemned brownstone and find it loaded with deadly traps, and an unrelenting killer. The group is forced to use their wits–and demolition tools–to stay alive.”

Petty’s got a clear visual style, as is evidenced by her many music videos, so perhaps she can make this a memorable narrative debut. No word yet as to whether her dad’s hit “The Waiting” will be used in the soundtrack as the city workers are “waiting” to see whether they live or die. What? No good? “Freefalling?” That doesn’t work either. OOH! “Don’t Come Around Here No More?” Perfect. (Deadline)
