X-Men's New Banshee, Caleb Landry Jones, Also Happens to Be a Very Good Local Musician
So much to get to before closing out this wet work week, including Elliot's recap of his day with the Westboro Baptist Church-folk and some legal matters concerning the wet-dry election. But first ...
Only a few folks have been cast in X-Men: First Class , Matthew Vaughan's mutant-academy prequel. One of the students, though, is very familiar to readers of DC9 at Night -- Caleb Landry Jones , otherwise known as the drummer and singer of local band Robert Jones , subject of an installment of DC9 in Space last August . Late yesterday the 20-year-old Jones was introduced as Banshee , the mutant with the "sonic scream." Perfect.
He's also done some other stuff -- Friday Night Lights , the forthcoming The Last Exorcism and David Fincher's Facebook docudrama The Social Networ k. Since I won't get to a for-your-weekend-listening-pleasure till tomorrow, here are a few selections from Jones's solo work . I dig. Very much.
