WATCH: Metallica Consider Going “Gay”

In a just-released video interview, the metal gods ponder how far they'd go for an acting role.

No matter how big or small, metal bands have a stake in looking like bad asses. In that, Metallica, the biggest metal band of them all, is no different from any of their head banging brethren. So it’s both fun and rare to see James, Kirk, Lars, and Robert drop the scowling for a bit and laugh it up, which is exactly what they do in a new clip from a video interview they did with Sirius radio host Jim Breuer.

Though the interview was conducted before Metallica’s concert at New Jersey’s Prudential Center last February — and aired on Breuer’s show Fridays with Breuer the same month — the video clips have only just been released. Check out the one below, in which Breuer asks whether the guys would be willing to play the role of a gay character in a film. Bet you can guess what James Hetfield’s answer is.
