Dokken frontman Don Dokken says he’s picked an actor to portray him in an upcoming Netflix movie about the band – and he admits it was no easy task.
“They sent me, like, six people to choose from,” Dokken says. “They asked me, 'Who looks like you?' I go, 'None of 'em.'” The problem was he wasn’t selecting an actor who looks like him now, but in 1989, which is when the movie is set, Dokken says. However, the band’s namesake says he – as well as his former bandmates – has since settled on an actor.
The as-yet-untitled movie will focus on four diehard Dokken fans who are trying to meet their musical heroes, Dokken says. A documentary about the band is also in the works, he says. More on that with a quick interview segment below
