Albert Hammond Jr. has announced that he will have a small part in ‘Newness,’ a film that will debut at Sundance later this month.

Albert linked to a Hollywood Reporter article and wrote the following on Facebook on Tuesday, Jan. 10: “My name in lights. So excited to see this movie at Sundance. I had a little role but it was a lifetime experience with amazing people. Too much!”

‘Newness’ will run from Jan. 19-29 at Sundance.

Its synopsis is: “In contemporary Los Angeles, two millennials navigating a social media–driven hookup culture begin a relationship that pushes both emotional and physical boundaries.”

The Strokes’ Instagram posted its nick’s birthday. Really makes you think how we’re all going to die one day doesn’t it?

@Joseph A
I don’t know how old you are, but as an over-50, I can tell you that watching young punk-ass musicians grow into middle-age is really weird. Like, just the other day I was reading about Billy Joe Armstrong and realized HE’S 44!! He’s a DAD, with kids old enough to be playing in their own bands! What?! In my mind, he’s still an edgy, crazy kid, spitting in the face of society. (Okay, so he’s still edgy and spitting in the face of society.) Doesn’t help any that all the media photos are from, like, 20 years ago. And then when they start dying, yeah, it really does make you stop and think. This is what TS have been railing against, that their fans have to let them grow up. They’re not puppies anymore. At least we can realistically expect to see them around for a good long while.
