Jacoby Shaddix has revealed that he will be making his acting debut in the upcoming film The Retaliators. Shaddix will portray Quinn Brady in the upcoming horror film, and in keeping with the synergy, the band is releasing a remastered version of "The Ending" to serve as the first single from the movie's soundtrack. You can stream the track below.
Shaddix says, “When I heard about this film last year, I spoke to the creative team and I felt I had a vehicle to see if I could expand my range as an artist. Truly, I couldn’t have imagined how much I enjoyed this experience and can’t wait to find another film in the future.” He appears alongside a diverse cast, which includes Michael Lombardi (FX’s Rescue Me, The Deuce), Marc Menchaca (Ozark, Black Mirror, The Sinner) and Joseph Gatt (Ray Donovan, Game of Thrones, Banshee, Dumbo) in the high-octane horror thriller.
Lombardi, who is also a co-producer on the film, says of Shaddix’s acting in the role of Quinn Brady, “I wasn’t sure what to expect. I thought he might be good because he’s a great storyteller with his songs, but I was truly blown away by his performance as an actor. I found Jacoby to be incredibly focused and committed! He was never afraid to jump off that cliff. For example, he and I had a scene together where his character has to slap me, pull my hair and lick my face. Lucky for me we only needed two takes, because he 100 percent went for it. I had a red, smacked, wet face when the director yelled cut. He’s a beast!”
PAPA ROACH also has a new hits collection with their current label. Greatest Hits Vol. 2 - The Better Noise Years is due for release on March 19. The 21 track collection includes three unreleased remixes and two unreleased acoustic recordings. Plus Asking Alexandria's Danny Worsnop joins the band on their song "Broken as Me" that originally appeared on the F.E.A.R. album.
The band stated: “We wanted to commemorate the last 10 years of our journey with this special collection of the music that got us here.”
