    It looks like the multi-talented Chester Bennington could add another title to his resume: Actor.

    Chester has a guest spot in the new movie "Crank", which features the likes of Jason Statham (The Transporter, Snatch), Amy Smart (Starsky & Hutch, Just Friends), and Dwight Yoakam (Panic Room, Wedding Crashers). The movie is about a hitman named Chev (Statham), who learns that poison injected into his body will kill him if his heart rate drops below a certain point. (Think of it as Speed without the bus.)

    A screengrab from the film depicts Chester's character in a tense staredown with the film's hitman. I have a feeling that the only battle Chester would be winning against the hitman would be a karaoke contest, so things could get precarious for him.

    It's likely to be a small part, considering the Internet Movie Database (iMDB) doesn't even credit him with a part in the movie. But judging by the still, you can bet he'll have a speaking role.

    Thanks to Chris!

    Well, it's said Chester started out as an actor anyway, so this should be heaven for him. Let's hope he does have a speaking role, even if it is a little one.

    That's pretty cool.

    Seems like a mediocre movie but any kind of role is good for your debut if it fits your personality as a musician. Which I think this role will be.

    Are you kidding me? :lol: I love the plot.

    And almost anything Jason Statham touches turns to gold, aside from Transporter 2.

    Well, I guess I'm not into those action movie plots with car chances or exploding trains/buildings/cars/people/bikes/cte :lol:

    It's a shame, though. Jean Claude Van Damme could've been my home country hero. :p

    I have a feeling Chester will shock us and be really good for the part.

    Hopefully he has some kungfu action with Mr. Statham.

    Don't I recall Chester once saying, and I quote, "I'm a singer, not an actor." Anyone else remember this to? :p

    Yeah, I think he was pretty good actually. I read that somewhere. Let's hope he does a good job.

    Yeah, but I thought he meant he was a professional actor before a singer. :lol:

    It looks like he'll be in line or something and he gets pushed out of the way. Like one of the comic relief scenes.

    [Chester get's pushed aside]

    Chester: HEY BUDDY I WAS IN LINE!

    Something like that.

    Heh, oh no no no, I just remember someone interviewing Chester and he mentioned about how he was in the drama class in high school and wanted to be an actor and such.

    I think that Jason says that "Hey buddy" and that Jason pushes him aside.
