Joel Madden, lead singer of Good Charlotte, will make his film debut in the drama Valley of the Damned, said to be "the Trainspotting for the new millennium," but crappy. To help prepare for the role, Madden will consult his girlfriend Hillary Duff:
She'll probably help coach me along. I really do respect her work, so she's someone who will help me when I ask her questions. I'll say, 'How did you do that?', and she'll tell me.
As examples of specific questions, he added, "Like, how did you get your teeth so big? Or how did you convince someone you were an actress?" Madden later took back the comment about respecting Duff's work after he actually saw her work.
