Nikki Sixx is delighted Johnny Knoxville has agreed to play him in an upcoming biopic about his Motley Crue band.

The legendary rock band made a deal in 2003 with MTV FILMS and Paramount to turn the THE DIRT - a revealing biography of Motley Crue - into a feature length movie.

And bassist Sixx knew the former JACKASS star was the right man to portray him, when he caught Knoxville urinating on a film boss' luxury car.

He says,"I feel pretty comfortable thinking about him doing it.

"I walked outside from the meeting at Paramount and he was peeing on the tyre of some executive.

"He has the right attitude."
