Ashton Kutcher to play rocker Tommy Lee in bio-pic

Los Angeles: Hollywood heartthrob Ashton Kutcher is in the running towards playing rocker Tommy Lee in a movie memoir of the heavy metal band `Motley Crue`.

Neil Strauss, who co-wrote the movie titled `Dirt` said that screenwriter Rich Wilkes has drawn up his wish list of stars, who he`d like to see as the rockers in the movie, reported MTV online.

Strauss said that Wilkes wants Kutcher, Sam Rockwell and Jared Leto to play band-mates Tommy Lee, Mick Mars and Vince Neil in the film.

"He told me who he`d love to see in the film. Here`s who he sees: Brad Pitt as David Lee Roth, Jared Leto as Vince Neil, Jack Black or Philip Seymour Hoffman as Ozzy Osbourne.

Justin Timberlake as their first manager, Sam Rockwell as Mick Mars, Ashton Kutcher or Russell Brand as Tommy Lee. He`s got it all thought out. That would be amazing," said Strauss.

But Strauss admits that although the first draft of the screenplay is amazing, there are issues about actually turning it into a film.

"I think they`re just scared because it`s obviously going to be a hard R (rated) movie. I think they`re worried they won`t make enough money off it," said Strauss.
