Two thumbs way up to whoever came up with this! We're all kinds of impressed with this casting decision.
By the summer, production will begin on The Drummer, a biopic following the life of Dennis Wilson of The Beach Boys. As Aaron Eckhart has already been pegged for the lead, the rest of the cast is starting to fall into place. Vera Farmiga will be taking the role of Fleetwood Mac's Christine McVie, who had an infamous, passionate love affair with Dennis and was known to be his muse.
We're told that Vera will put her classical piano training to good use in the film as well as sing "a number of duets with Eckhart." Aaron, in turn, is being coached in piano, voice and of course drums, to be prepared for the part.
Sounds like they are taking this very seriously. Good for them. Should make for a better movie that way.
