METALLIOA — or Alcoholica. as they were once known - are grinding up the road to unleash their fearsome blend of delicate intros and ear-shredding thrashcore onto Scotland's adolescent fans once more. Not that we liberal. art-loving fops here at The List would dare to mock — not after the hardened livers of a brace of Loaded hacks were crippled during a rip-snortin‘ 24- hour binge with the metal masters. Metallica rock like bastards. just don't go boozing with them.

EDDIE MURPHY — oh yes it is — has put on a few prosthetic pounds for his multiplicity of roles in The Nutty I’I'Q/cssm'. When sweet guy Sherman Klump takes a magic diet potion in order to win the girl of his dreams. he turns into alter-ego Buddy Love. a streamlined hut loud and obnoxious jerk. 'This is a Jekyll and Hyde story.’ says the 35-year- old actor. ‘We wanted someone who was uncomfortable with himself physically but was a beautiful person inside. Sherman's lovable and charming and funny and all of that. but he‘s just uncomfortable with his body. He falls in love with this girl. but he can‘t have her because of his looks — that’s exactly the same thing as The Hunchback Oj'Notre Dume.‘ (Anwar Brett)
The Nutty Professor goes on general release on Fri 4 Oct.
