Hetfield landed the role of real-life patrol officer Bob Hayward and was personally cast by director Joe Berlinger who also directed a documentary about Metallica Some Kind of Monster back in 2004. “Having spent hundreds of hours behind the scenes with James and the rest of Metallica, I have experienced his charisma and powerful presence close up. It seemed only natural that he would bring that same power and magnetism to a dramatic role, so when he agreed to my pitch that he be in the movie, I was thrilled”, says Berlinger of Hetfield.
