Celebrities love to cross the lines between disciplines, feeling that if they’re good at one thing they’ll probably be good at everything. And while most rock stars who try acting stink on ice, here are ten who actually pulled it off.
10. Steven Van Zandt
“Little Steven” from the E Street Band took his biggest role as Silvio Dante on The Sopranos under the condition that no professional actor would be passed over if he got the part.
9. David Bowie
The Thin White Duke has made a career out of relentless self-transformation, so it’s not surprising he showed acting chops in flicks like The Last Temptation of Christ and The Hunger.
8. Tom Waits
Gravel-voiced crooner Tom Waits has lent his craggy appearance to a solid selection of flicks, most notably Down by Law.
