As reported previously, Alan Rickman will be starring in CBGB as club owner, Hilly Kristal. Alan Rickman released his first statement about his role in the movie to the Daily Telegraph. According to the article, Mr. Rickman is very excited to “vibe” and live a "second youth”, stating:


“Sadly I never got to go to the club when it was around, but they’re reconstructing it as we speak in a studio in Savannah so I’ll have my second youth there,” the Harry Potter star declares.

“I’ll get what might be called the vibe when I go there in three weeks, I’ll be vibing."

This sounds like something different. I wonder if we will see it in the UK?

Sounds intriguing but I’m not sure he’ll be “staring” into it! :D

@Elodie, if you reread the first sentence of the news item you’ll see that someone misspelled ‘starring’ as ‘staring.’

Don’t feel bad, Alan – I lived in NYC during some of the prime years of CBGB’s and never went to the club either. Never wanted to.

It’s fun to imagine how AR would enunciate ’I’ll be vibing,’ though!

Wow, I am soooooo excited for him!!!!!!!!!!!!! And even better, I live in Georgia. Though I am far from Savannah I will be in the same state as him O. O :DDDDDDDDDD
