It looks like the actors playing the Sex Pistols bandmates in the highly-anticipated show Pistol aren't so different from the punk-rock band members, who completely transformed British society and culture in the mid-70s. The cast was seen causing a ruckus on set of the forthcoming FX drama, as they took on the personas of the punk icons themselves.
In Danny Boyle's new six-part TV drama — which is based on the memoir of Sex Pistol bassist Steve Jones — Anson Boon plays Johnny Rotten, Louis Partridge portrays bassist Sid Vicious, Jacob Slater plays drummer Paul Cook and Toby Wallace takes on guitarist Jones.
On Wednesday, March 24, the foursome was pictured together on the set and appeared to be in good spirits when they were seen laughing and joking around. The rowdy crew sported silly faces and flipped off cameras during their chaotic day of filming.

Boon completely transformed into a punk rocker, as he was seen for the first time on set with his co-stars.
The actors were snapped having fun on the set, which was covered in black bin bags and rubbish. The set appeared to be a nod to the Winter of Discontent strike, which lasted from 1978-1979.
Boon rocked Rotten's signature spikey red hair while Patridge and Wallace replicated Vicious and Jones' respective looks.
The six-part TV drama will follow the Sex Pistols' rise to fame and their connection to Vivienne Westwood and Malcolm McLaren's sex shop on Kings Road.
Thomas Brodie-Sangster, who starred in Maze Runner and Game of Thrones, plays McLaren — the Sex Pistols' manager — and Talulah Riley, who starred in Westworld and St Trinian's, portrays fashion designer Westwood.
Pistol is set to be released next year.
