Legendary rock band hire Paul Mescal to star in upcoming music video

We can't wait to see this!


The Rolling Stones have hired Paul Mescal to star in their upcoming music video.

According to The Sun, the Normal People star will play a “hunky party boy” in the music video for their new song Scarlet.

The band wrote the track back in 1974, with Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page.

A source said: “It’s a massive collaboration and a great coup to get Paul on board. He’s one of the biggest stars in the world right now, but obviously he was keen to work with some music legends too.”

“Universal man­ag­ed to pull off the partnership at just the right time, and everyone involved is seriously excited.”

“Paul plays a hunky party boy in the film, and no doubt there will be a whole new set of fans of his who will want to check it out too, as well as the band’s fanbase.”

“The plan is to finalise it over the next few days. Hopefully fans will get to see the results very soon,” the insider added.
