File under "Things That Should Be The Other Way Around": Christopher Walken will show up briefly as Ozzy Osbourne, but only in a movie about Motley Crue, ABC News reports.

Motley Crue lead singer Vince Neil told ABC News Radio in an exclusive interview that the 63-year-old Oscar-winning actor will make a cameo appearance as Osbourne in The Dirt, a movie based on the band's controversial 2001 autobiography.

"How funny is that going to be," Neil told ABC's Al Mancini at the Opening of Vince Neil Ink, the singer's new tattoo parlor in Las Vegas.
