Fred Durst is directing a new film called Moose, which stars John Travolta. When asked about the experience by TMZ, Travolta had nothing but nice things to say about the Limp Bizkit frontman.
"It may be my favorite experience I've had," Travolta said of making the film. "He's so generous, and he's such an artist."
Considering the actor has worked with directors including Quentin Tarantino, Nora Ephron and Oliver Stone, that's certainly high praise.
In Moose, Travolta plays a character who's obsessed with a celebrity action star to the point of wanting to destroy his hero's life. The plot is…

Three Days Grace earned their 13th number one single on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Songs chart last month thanks to their track "The Mountain." That feat tied the record for the most number one songs on the tally, which was set by the one and only Van Halen.
Speaking with Billboard, drummer Neil Sanderson says the band had "no idea that we were even in the mix with those legends," and insists they're "not worthy" of the comparison.
"They're idols of ours, particularly [guitarist] Barry [Stock] is a massive Van Halen fan," Sanderson says. "I'm pretty sure that I have seen…
