Creed frontman Scott Stapp will be adding “actor” to his resume, joining the cast of an upcoming biographical movie about Ronald Reagan.

Stapp will be playing Frank Sinatra in the movie, Billboard first reported and Stapp confirmed on his twitter account.

“Excited to (be) a part of this incredible film! Be sure to check it out!” Stapp tweeted along with a hashtag of Reagan and Frank Sinatra, and linking to the Billboard story.

Stapp will perform as Sinatra during a scene about Reagan’s second run for Governor of California, Billboard reports.

The movie, called “Reagan”, is set to star Dennis Quaid as the former president. It is planned to be released in 2021.

"Sinatra in performance mode was an exercise in restraint,” Stapp said in a statement to Billboard. “He had this steely, stylish swagger and his sheer presence commanded a room. I was excited to join the cast and blown away by the on-set attention to detail, style, and overall production."

The cast includes Penelope Ann Miller, Mena Suvari, Kevin Dillon, and Jon Voight.
