Malin Akerman - Malin Akerman: 'Playing Debbie Harry Is A Dream Come True'

Malin Akerman is still pinching herself about the prospect of playing Blondie star Debbie Harry on the big screen - because she has images of the punk icon plastered all over her bathroom.
The Watchmen star will portray the Call Me singer in upcoming Hilly Kristal biopic Cbgb and she admits it's a role she thought she could only dream of playing.
She tells WENN, "I love Debbie Harry, and Blondie. It's so funny, we have in our bathroom - I did a whole collage on the wall of just musicians that my husband and I love - because our bathroom sucks and I had to make it look nice, so I have five pictures of Debbie Harry in that collage. It's amazing; it's like a vision board almost!"
And now, to make her dream complete, Akerman is hoping to meet her idol before she hits the set in character next month (Jul12).
She adds, "I did get to meet Clem (Burke), her drummer and talk to him a little bit about her and what she's like. Hopefully I'll get a chance to speak to her as well."
But the actress, who once fronted rock band The Peddle Stones, has no idea if she'll be asked to belt out a Blondie classic in the film, directed by Randall Miller.
She explains, "I don't know if I'll be singing or lip-syncing. It's a smaller budget film and a five-week shoot, so I don't know if they'll have the ability to re-record the songs. We're just talking about it right now."
