Machine Gun Kelly is drawing on his real-life experiences to play a tormented rock star tangling with addiction and the crushing pressures of fame. The star, who goes by his real name — Colson Baker — in the movie's credits, has been very open about his struggles with addiction and fame in the past, chronicling them in his documentary "Life in Pink." Now, in "Taurus," a movie that he also served as executive producer, composer, and script consultant on, he's dramatizing his story by diving into a new character whose experience appears to be both similar to his own and universal to the archetype of the tortured rock star.
"This is my 14th or 15th movie, but this movie is really close to me," Kelly told a crowd after being honoured at Variety's Newport Beach Film Festival Honours brunch on Oct. 16, per Moviemaker. "It's about the last week that a musician is alive, and he's just trying to battle between the good and the — just trying to find the good in himself. And that's kind of how I feel, a lot of the times. I always get asked about what it's like being a musician acting, but it feels a little bit to me like going in a toy store and just looking at a toy in a box. Like I don't want to be in a box. I want you to take the toy out of the box and experience what the toy does."
