Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler's IMDB page is filled with pretty ordinary rock star gigs: random voice acting, roles in rock movies, sitcom guest spots as himself. None of which compares to the rock legend's latest role: a hard-partying cowboy named Kasape Suka in horror-thriller Happy Birthday. The film's campy trailer finds Tyler's character at a Mexican bar, where he boozes, gulps down pills and soaks in a cock fight.
The film, directed by Casey Tebo, focuses on two buddies' birthday road trip gone awry. After being seduced by criminals, one friend winds up shackled in a shady motel room, leading to a ransom plot possibly involving the Mexican drug cartel. The clip features plenty of tighty-whities (shades of Breaking Bad's Walter White), roosters and lens flares. "I believe anything worth doing is worth overdoing," Tyler boasts.
The singer recently admitted he's "really concerned" about Aerosmith bandmate Joe Perry, who collapsed during a show Sunday with the Hollywood Vampires and was subsequently hospitalized.
"It's starting to scare me a little bit," Tyler told Billboard. "I know my brother. He's just about the only other guy that's as passionate about his art as I am. He's always asking me to do three, four [Aerosmith] shows in a row, and I can't. I'll blow my voice out. I know how to maintain my career, my health and Joe's passionate. I don't think he knows how to. I think he's out there and someone's overbooking him."
