What music becomes a movie hero most?
If you’re Sam Worthington
, it’s all about the rock. Worthington may like acting, but he loves music. We interviewed the “Avatar
” and “Clash of the Titans
” star on Saturday. After the cameras stopped rolling, we spent a few minutes talking music.
Worthington was sporting a t-shirt for Baroness
, a Georgia metal band. Worthington said he wore t-shirts emblazoned with his fave bands every chance he gets during TV interviews since it can serve as a little free promotion for acts he loves, he said.
His all time fave? “Lemmy
,” Worthington said, without a second’s hesitation. We asked if he knew about the new Lemmy documentary, “Lemmy: 49% Motherf**ker. 51% Son of a Bitch” (produced by our former Billboard
colleague and all-around good guy Wes Orshoski) and he surprised us by saying he’d already seen it. Stardom has its benefits!
Worthington then brought up another favorite: his fellow Aussies, Silverchair
. We’ve followed them from their start with 1995’s “Frogstomp,” but for us, their best album was their last, 2007’s “Young Modern,” arranged and orchestrated by Van Dyke Parks
. “I love them,” Worthington said. Then he gave us a little scoop: “They’re working on a new album. It’s great.” Good to know.
