Aaron Eckhart Set to Play Beach Boy Dennis Wilson

Aaron Eckhart.

Aaron Eckhart's inherent beachiness and ability to really rock a seventies-era beard will be put to good use in Randall Miller's upcoming biopic The Drummer, about Beach Boys drummer Dennis Wilson. The movie, with a screenplay by Jody Savin, covers the last six and troubled years of Wilson's life, including the release of his solo album Pacific Ocean Blue. Eckhart will record his own versions of those songs for the movie. Look at that cover art and try not to think of Aaron Eckhart. It can't be done! [Variety]
