Malin Akerman

It seems to have been confirmed that Malin Akerman will be playing Debbie Harry lead singer of the punk rock band Blondie, in the new movie, CBGB.

The news comes from Variety reporting that CBGB, a biopic, if you will, about the famous New York venue during the 1970s has also recently hired Alan Rickman to star as Hilly Kristal, the owner of CBGB and Rupert Grint set to play Cheetah Chrome, the guitarist for the punk outfit known as Dead Boys.

Randall Miller is directing the independent film based on a script that he wrote with Jody Savin. Production on CBGB will start next month in New York.
