Jay Baruchel is set to play iconic punk rocker John Armstrong, aka Buck Cherry, frontman of 1980s Vancouver-based band, "The Modernettes. in a new biopic. Variety reports that Baruchel will star in The Rebel Kind, which was written and will be directed by Reg Harkema (Monkey Warfare, Leslie, My Name is Evil) The story will chronicle “the emergence of the city's punk-rock scene via a successful band that throws in the towel, realizing the deep cost of pursuing superstardom.”

Here is our list of the 5 Best Rocker Roles In Movies:

Matthew Lillard (Scream, Scooby Doo, The Descendants) as Stevo in SLC Punk! He also played a punk-type character in Hackers.

Sean Penn channeled his Robert Smith look for This Must Be The Place. While I have not seen it yet, this seems like a interesting role for Penn, and a must-add to this list.

Gary Oldman as Sid Viscious in Sid and Nancy

Lou Diamond Phillips as Ritchie Valens in La Bamba
