Tron actress Olivia Wilde will move from in front of the screen to the director's chair for the Peppers' Dark Necessities visuals. Olivia is already in full boss-mode with the actress seen giving orders to the band members on set. The movie star is no stranger to the music world as she is currently starring in HBO's rock n roll series Vinyl while she has directed a couple of music videos in the past. We can't wait to see Olivia's handiwork.
