Rick Springfield is stepping back in front of the cameras.  HollywoodReporter.com says the singer-actor is on board for the new Meryl Streep film Ricki and the Flash.

And the role shouldn't be much of a stretch for the rocker.  In the film Streep stars as the title character, who put her family second to pursuing her rock and roll dream. 

Springfield plays the part of a guitarist in Ricki's band who's enamored with her.  Filming is scheduled to begin in October.
