More stars are joining Randall Miller and Jody Savin’s biopic of iconic New York music venue “CBGB” alongside the already cast Alan Rickman as club-owner Hilly Kristal and Rupert Grint as Dead Boys guitarist Cheetah Chrome.

THR reports that “Rock of Ages” and “Watchmen” actress Malin Akerman is set to play the one and only Deborah Harry from Blondie, while Joel David Moore and Julian Acosta are locked as Joey and Johnny Ramone respectively.

Joining them are “Castle” actress Stana Katic as Goldie & the Gingerbreads singer Genya Ravan, Richard De Klerk as CBGB soundman Taxi, Josh Zuckerman as Punk magazine creator John Holmstrom, Ryan Hurst as ‘Mad Mountain’, and Estelle Harris as Hilly’s mother Bertha.

Shooting kicks off this time next month in Savannah before moving to New York City.
