Young, arena-filling, rock superstar played by Michael Pitt in the 2000 indie rock opera film Hedwig and the Angry Inch.

His video for "Tear Me Apart" is number one on MTV and Rolling Stone magazine has crowned him Artist of the Year. How did he do it? Well, his transsexual former lover/mentor Hedwig carefully groomed him from a classic rock-lovin' Jesus freak into a moody alterna-rock hunk. In gratitude, he ditched her and stole her songs (such as "The Origin of Love").
