System of a Down will keep their reunion going this summer. They've just announced that they'll be headlining two hard rock festivals in Canada this August -- Heavy MTL in Montreal on the 11th and Heavy TO in Toronto on the 12th. There's no word yet if System is looking to play any U.S. shows around that time.

A preview of Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich's acting debut -- playing someone other than himself -- has hit YouTube. The five-minute clip from the HBO film Hemingway and Gellhorn shows Ulrich briefly in his role as Dutch documentary filmmaker Joris Ivens. The movie, which stars Clive Owen and Nicole Kidman, debuts on HBO on May 28th.
