If Aaron Eckhart doesn't have musical chops, he better get practicing: the 'Rum Diary' co-star has just signed on to play Dennis Wilson of The Beach Boys, a role which requires him to master the drums and piano, do a bit of singing and -- to resemble the '70s-era Wilson -- grow out his beard. (Those of you who loved him best as the biker boyfriend in 'Erin Brockovich,' rejoice.) The Drummer' will follow the last six years of Wilson's life, from the 1977 release of his solo album 'Pacific Ocean Blue' to his death in 1983.
