Rick Springfield is stepping back in front of the cameras. HollywoodReporter.com says the singer-actor is on board for the new Meryl Streep film Ricki and the Flash.
And the role shouldn't be much of a stretch for the rocker. In the film Streep stars as the title character, who put her family second to pursuing her rock and roll dream.
Springfield plays the part of a guitarist in Ricki's band who's enamored with her. Filming is scheduled to begin in October.
