Phillip Vaden stars in Pope Dreams, a film about a drummer who dreams big.
Vaden admits he faked his stellar drum skills for the role, and cant take credit for any of his rockstar moves.
The films director was a drummer and coached Vaden on the kit, and although he now fancies himself an amateur drummer, hed never brave the stage at a rock show.
Vaden laughs, I say Im an amateur drummer until someone actually asks me to play. Then Im like, Well, by amateur, I mean I cant play at all!
But just because he cant get down on the snares, doesnt mean he cant keep a beat.
He played percussion in his junior high school band, but didnt play the cool drums, just the lame drums.
He was also a pro at the triangle and joined the school choir, but only because thats where all the cute girls were.
Pope Dreams comes out on DVD today (Aug. 26).
