Fred Durst Directs eHarmony Commercial, Poses With CEO Neil Clark Warren: Picture
Forget the nookie—Fred Durst is doin' it for the love now! Rap metal musician Durst is probably not someone most people associate with romance and the search for a soul mate, but that could soon change. According to social media, the Limp Bizkit alum, 43, recently directed a commercial for online dating site eHarmony.
"Our CEO Dr. Neil Clark Warren is on set today filming new commercials w/ Director @freddurst!" the company's official Twitter account shared on May 2, hashtagging the post with "#behindthescenes" and "#epic."
The tweet included a photo of the tatted-up former rock star posing next to Warren, 79, who co-founded the site in 2000. (Warren often appears in commercials for the company.)
This is not Durst's first time behind the camera. The musician directed many of his band's most famous music videos in the 1990s and early 2000s, including "Nookie" and "Faith" (a cover of the George Michael hit). And after Limp Bizkit went on hiatus in 2006, he made a name for himself in independent films.
In 2007, Durst released his feature directorial debut, The Education of Charlie Banks, a coming-of-age drama starring Jesse Eisenberg and Jason Ritter. And he directed a second movie, 2008's The Longshots, with Ice Cube and Keke Palmer.
"He was really personable and insanely calm," actor Chris Marquette told MTV of working with Durst on Charlie Banks. "We did all our prep work, and when we got to the set, he just let it go. It was cool...His confidence was incredible."
