When James Hetfield is on stage, he's busy belting out Metallica's huge, headbanging hits. But now that it's been announced that he will be acting in his first dramatic role in an upcoming film about the infamous serial killer Ted Bundy, he'll leave the murdering to him.

Posted to their Instagram, we see Hetfield on set of Extremely Wicked, Shocking Evil and Vile as Officer Bob Hayward, who first arrested Ted Bundy in 1975 as portrayed by Zac Efron. Director Joe Berlinger said in the image's caption, "A special day on set of our little Bundy movie starring Zac Efron and Lily Collins... Metallica is in the house as James Hetfield (@papa_het_) plays Officer Bob Hayward in his first dramatic role. Having one of my musical heroes in our film is pretty damn awesome."
