David Soul - David Soul Agreed To Movie Cameo After Booze Session

Actor/singer David Soul agreed to perform a version of his hit track Silver Lady in new movie Filth after heading out on a wild drinking session with director Jon S. Baird.

The Starsky and Hutch star topped the charts in the U.K. in 1977 with the song, and Scottish author Irvine Welsh is a big fan of the track, as well as Soul's other major hit, Don't Give Up On Us.

He and Baird wanted Soul to appear in the movie version of Welsh's book to perform one of the songs, and the filmmaker managed to convince the veteran actor during a boozy night out.

Welsh tells Nme magazine, "I met David a while back. Silver Lady and Don't Give Up On Us are two of my karaoke classics. I put Jon in touch with David and they got on like a house on fire. They went off on the p**s (a drinking session) together. David was keen to get involved and he did it with such panache."
