Ronnie Wood Makes Foray Into Tv
ROLLING STONES legend RONNIE WOOD is making a foray into British TV - by starring in hit crime series THE BILL.
The PAINT IT BLACK axeman, 57, is a huge fan of the popular police drama and decided to accept a small role, after secretly visiting the set recently.
Wood - who is good friends with series regular JEFF STEWART who plays PC REG HOLLIS - has asked producers to cast him as a criminal but has yet to arrange a definite date to film.
Wildman Wood enthuses, "The Bill is one of my favourite shows and I'd love to have a bit part.
"It's a question of fitting it in with my proper job."
An insider at The Bill adds, "We were bowled over to see him on our set.
"We're coming up with a part for him."15/07/2004 09:24
