Right now, we're swimming in a sea of superheroes -- daring men who don tights and steal the hearts of women by flying through space or catching them off guard with awkward, rainy kisses. However, crime fighters aren't the only ones to do so. There's also the rock star. They pull on those stretchy, tight pants and the women go crazy! At least, they did in the 80s. After twenty years, Hollywood has started to focus on this crazy decade, and what better to film than a loud, womanizing hair band? Enter: Mötley Crüe.

As we previously reported, the movie is to be based on the bestseller The Dirt: Confessions of the World's Most Notorious Rock Band and Larry "Borat" Charles is supposed to direct. The name alone evokes thoughts of a racy Almost Famous with more sex, drugs and teased hair. CHUD reports that Vince Neil, the band's frontman, had a talk with ABC News about a string of celebrities set up to play the other musicians who crossed the Crüe path.

Continuing his trend to play lascivious celebrities, Val Kilmer is reportedly set up to play the ever-obnoxious, yet ever-loved Diamond Dave, David Lee Roth. Val seemed to navigate leather pants well in The Doors, which bodes well for him, but I wonder if he is stretchy enough to do the famous toe-touch. But forget about Val, the mother of all cameos is also rumored -- Christopher Walken as Ozzy Osborne! Biting the heads off bats would be a new path for Walken, who made anal watch-carrying seem logical. Besides, I'd pay good money to see him in rock star garb!

What do you think of these casting ideas, and who would you cast as 80s rock icons?
