Deerhunter/Atlas Sound frontman Bradford Cox is headed to the big screen. As The Hollywood Reporter reports (via the Playlist), he’s set to appear in the upcoming drama The Dallas Buyers Club, directed by Jean-Marc Valleé.

The film centers on Matthew McConaughey as Ron Woodruff, a man who experimented with non-FDA-approved drugs after being diagnosed with AIDS in 1986 and given only a few months to live. Cox plays the lover of Jared Leto’s character, a cross-dresser who is dying of AIDS.

The cast, who are currently shooting in New Orleans, also features Jennifer Garner, Griffin Dunne, and Denis O’Hare.

Watch Bradford Cox perform at a gallery opening for Ryan McGinley earlier this year:
