The Rocker

The Rocker

(2008)
The Rocker tells the story of a failed drummer who is given a second chance at fame. Robert ‘Fish’ Fishman (The American Office’s Rainn Wilson) is the extremely dedicated and astoundingly passionate drummer for the eighties hair band Vesuvius, who is living the rock and roll dream until he is unceremoniously kicked out of the band.

Twenty years after his rock star fantasies are destroyed, just when Fish has finally given up all hope, he hears that his nephew's high school rock band A.D.D. is looking for a new drummer. They reluctantly make him the newest member of the band, giving him a chance to reclaim the rock god throne he's always thought he deserved.
