With cameras now rolling on Sofia Coppola's "The Bling Ring," it seems casting is continuing as smaller roles get filled, although in this case, a pretty big name is lending his face to the movie.

Bush frontman, Mr. Gwen Stefani and part-time actor Gavin Rossdale was snapped by paparazzi (via Rumor Fix) shooting scenes for the upcoming film. As you know, we've had a flip through the script, and given he's being carried away in cuffs, we're pretty certain he's playing Ricky, a sleazy club promoter who helps the young thieves who are raiding the homes of stars to fence their loot. This isn't Rossdale's first time on a movie set, as he's taken roles both on the big and small screen popping up in "Constantine" and "The Game Of Their Lives" and doing stints on TV shows like "Criminal Minds" and "Burn Notice." We suppose this is another chance for him to hone his skills.

As noted, while "The Bling Ring" is yet another look at privileged lifestyles, it takes a slightly different tack with a satirical tone that offers up an incisive look on the empty obsession with celebrity culture. Emma Watson and Leslie Mann are the biggest names in the cast that is mostly made up of unknowns including Israel Broussard, Katie Chang, Claire Pfister, Georgia Rock and Carlos Miranda. Are there more actual celebs set to make appearances? Guess we'll soon see, and we suppose it's a possibility. After all, Benicio Del Toro, the band Rooney, model Erin Wasson and Coppola player Alden Ehrenreich all popped up in "Somewhere."

Production on the film continues. Fingers crossed we get to see it before the year is out.
