movies

the mandy moore thread made me think of musicians jumping to movies...how many have made the jump from great musician to good or at least decent actor? (not just cameos) John Doe, Iggy, Debbie Harry, Dwight Yoakum, Lee Ving
how about surprising by going from crap singer to good or decent actor like Mandy Moore in Saved... hell Ill admit to liking Jennifer Lopez in Selena
anyone seen the new one with Justin Timberlake?

Tom Waits is a good actor. See: Short Cuts

There's also Tupac, Bowie rules in The Labrynth. Probably more that I'm forgetting.[/i]

Elvis could've been good.

Sinatra was good.

Ice Cube is good.

The Beatles (Hard Days Night) and John Lennon (How I Won the War). Ok, they played themselves, but the former was a good film. Lennon was pretty funny in the latter, too.

Chris Issac. Um, he played himself pretty much, too. (The Chris Issac Show, That Thing You Do) But fine, fine to look at...and listen to.

Will Oldham has a fairly long rap sheet as far as movies go, including Junebug, which I read about but didn't interest me. Anyone seen it?

ETA: And yes Ice Cube was great in Three Kings.

I'm not sure he would qualify in the "great musician" category, but there's always Mark Wahlberg.

Was Jason Schwartzman in Phantom Planet before or after Rushmore?

Well, I know most might disagree...but I always thought Joe Strummer was pretty great in Mystery Train. (I saw him in New York in 2001 at an in-store show, and Steve Buscemi came too, which I thought was pretty cool.)

I kind of think maybe part of it is that Jim Jarmusch is particularly good at coaxing musicians into good acting.

And I do admit that Straight to Hell is a gigantic ball of crap no matter how many odd/fantastic people are in it.

very much so...and he did most of the music for it too!

(i just ordered a copy of the soundtrack...i'm going on a bowie kick and that movie is what really got me into his voice.)

Junebug is a very good movie, see it.
