Sam Rockwell talks Dr. Dre TV show: We had a couple of orgy scenes
News broke last month that Apple is backing a TV show starring ex-N.W.A. member, legendary producer, and Beats co-founder Dr. Dre. Titled Vital Signs, the show was described as a dark, semi-autobiographical drama whose cast includes Sam Rockwell. Little has been heard of the project since. But today, in an interview with the Entertainment Weirdly radio show, Rockwell confirmed that he is appearing in the series and filled in a few details about what to expect.
“Me, Ian McShane, and Michael K. Williams are aspects of his personality,” said the actor, whose new action-comedy Mr. Right opens April 8. “I play Ego, and Ian McShane is Vengeance, and Michael K. Williams is Negativity. There’s also a character called Prodigy. It’s really aspects of Dr Dre’s personality. It’s a really cool thing. It’s like a series of short films.”
Rockwell also confirmed that the show is at times risqué. “We had a couple of orgy scenes,” said the actor. “That was interesting.”
You can hear Rockwell talk about the show, below. And you can hear the full interview with the actor on Entertainment Weirdly on Sirius XM’s Entertainment Weekly channel at 1 p.m. ET on April 11.
