  • Ozzy's portrayal in The Dirt

    Has anyone watched the Mötley Crüe movie on Netflix called The Dirt?

    I just found out an actor named Tony Cavalero portrays Ozzy in the movie. His scene is the infamous snorting ants story. Did Tony Cavalero make a good Ozzy?

    I plan on watching it, I’ve heard it’s pretty graphic.

      I saw Lords Of Chaos, not bad and not good, somewhere in the middle.

        Yeah, I thought he did pretty good. Short and sweet.

          You really get a STRONG sense of Dio's feelings about Ozzy being an "Animal" and you also get the feeling that it's not over-acting or hyper dramatized.

          In other words, it seems like a very real thing that happened. It strikes you as real and revolting. That's also a remark on how well the actor did playing Ozzy. There was almost no
          double-take. He stumbles into the scene and you go "Ozzy." without question.

          Ozzy was a very disgusting, filthy human being.

              He portrayed Ozzy with what I can only call a "London accent" which seemed strange as he's from Birmingham.

              Whenever I watch US actors doing an English accent they seem to default to some kind of mockney thing, is it because of Mick Jagger?

                I didn't notice anything funny about the accent, I was just too caught up in how the actor really seemed to nail Ozzy's character. He's the guy who plays the teacher in the kids television version of School of Rock and my children watch it all the time, so I was really looking forward to seeing how Ozzy would be portrayed.

                I was hoping his scene would be a bit longer than it was, because it was really just a quick couple of minutes, but I nevertheless really enjoyed it. My friends and I still occasionally mention how on the money it was. If Netflix (or anyone else) decides to make an Ozzy Osbourne movie (which I'm sure Sharon is already making plans for....) then I hope they use the same guy - London accent notwithstanding.

                Great movie too, by the way, 'The Dirt'. Goofy and dumb just like Motley Crue, but it a good way. As a Motley Crue fan I definitely enjoyed it.

                  I look forward to seeing it, I was Motley Crue fan way back in the day, for only their first two albums.
