Hollywood wildman Christian Slater has landed a new role - advertising bleach as part of a British Television advertising campaign.

The TRUE ROMANCE star, who has had a string of run-ins with police, has been hired to voice a dirty germ in the commercial, as bosses at Domestos think he has the perfect image for the part.

A spokesperson for Domestos says, "We've hired Christian because we wanted to try and bring the germs to life in the advert, he's perfect because he's got this husky, slightly dark voice. And of course, there's a slightly dark side to him."

The ads are part of a public health campaign in the UK titled 'Germaphobia'.
