Tom Waits is to star in a new film alongside KEIRA KNIGHTLY, MICKEY ROURKE and CHRISTOPHER WALKEN.

The singer has taken a small role in director Tony Scott’s new movie ’Domino’.

The film is a true story of British actor Laurence Harvey’s daughter, ’Domino’ who turned away from her successful career as a model to become a bounty hunter.

Tom Waits plays the part of a wandering soothsayer and filmed his scenes immediately on returning to America after his triumphant London Hammersmith Apollo show last month (November 23).

Speaking about why he took the role, Tom Waits said: “They won me in a poker game.”
