Ashley Greene is going from vampire mate to Empire State!
In the new film CBGB, The Twilight star will be playing Lisa Kristal, the daughter of the legendary New York rock club’s owner.
Ashley says she is anxious about playing a character who is actually around to critique her performance. She told E! News Wednesday night:
"It's a little nerve-racking to play someone who existed, who's a real person that's still alive. You're like, 'Oh, they can yell at me if I do a bad job!' But it's going to be cool to get to talk to her about it and [learn about] personal experiences from her."
Ashley won’t be the only one taking on the role of a real-life person. The film will also feature Malin Akerman as Blondie frontwoman Debbie Harry, Joel David Moore as Joey Ramone, and Harry Potter’s Rupert Grint as punk guitarist Cheetah Chrome.
No word yet on who’ll be playing sex and drugs! Lolz!
