Mascis plays a caretaker in new feature film from the 'Submarine' man
In the movie, which stars Jesse Eisenberg and Mia Wasikowska, Mascis plays a caretaker.
Speaking about the musician, Ayoade says: "I knew he could act because he was in [1992 movie] Gas Food Lodging, and he has this great persona that he has and it just felt right. He's my favourite musician so, yeah, it was a complete thrill having him in it."
