While I was a little shocked at first, after thinking more and more about it this is a great casting job.
Taylor Hawkins will play Iggy Pop in the new film CBGB. This will be his first real significant acting role (although we all remember his comedy in the Foo Fighters videos). Its not clear yet how big the role might be but I think it has the potential to be great.
Worst comes to worst he looks just like him!
