    Tyson Ritter, the singer for The All-American Rejects, will play rocker (and Cher's ex-husband) Gregg Allman in an upcoming biopic based on Allman's My Cross to Bear autobiography.

    That is an interesting casting.

    The film's working title is Midnight Rider and the actors will perform vocals, guitar, piano and organ throughout the movie, which we totally respect. Production begins in Georgia in February.

    A release date has not yet been confirmed.

    What do you think of this casting coup?
