After appearing as himself in two films -- the 2010 comedy 'Get Him to the Greek' and the 2004 documentary 'Some Kind of Monster' -- Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich aims to show his dramatic range in 'Hemingway & Gellhorn,' an HBO Films production set to premiere May 28.

The film chronicles the marriage between Ernest Hemingway, played by Clive Owen, and war correspondent Martha Gellhorn, the inspiration behind 'For Whom the Bell Tolls,' played by Nicole Kidman. Danish-born Ulrich portrays Joris Ivens, a Dutch documentarian, and based on his brief appearance in the trailer below, the metal drummer, onetime tennis prodigy and noted art collector holds his own against the Hollywood heavies.



In addition to the trailer, photos of the drummer on the movie set are available at Zimbio.com, Blabbermouth.net reports.
