Dave Grohl turns down devil role in ‘King Kong’

Pal Jack Black thought he'd rock as Satan

‘King Kong’ star Jack Black says he begged his pal Dave Grohl to make a cameo as the devil in the forthcoming blockbuster movie.

Satan appears in the Peter Jackson-directed movie, and the actor was convinced the Foo Fighters frontman would be perfect for the role of Lucifer, reports breakingnews.ie.

Black revealed: “I asked him to be in ‘King Kong’. We wanted him to play the devil but he was too busy.”

Black added: “He doesn’t have a major part – but he is a big influence.

“I don’t believe in the devil but I’ve always liked him as a character, kind of like Darth Vader. Satan pretty much invented rock.”
