7 Musicians Who Made a Failed Attempt at Acting

114

There are many amazing singers who also happen to be amazing actors. But it doesn’t happen to everybody, which is totally fine. If you’re talented in one thing it doesn’t mean you have to do the rest of the things perfectly as well. But some of the movies with musicians are just particularly bad.

Nexter.org invites you to take a look at singers’ failed attempts to act.

50 Cent

Samuel L. Jackson said that he didn’t want to work with such an “unproven” actor and turned down a role. 50’s role here very flat and overwrought, his glare though is pretty good. 

 

Britney Spears

Crossroads was made to highlight Britney’s brand, however, didn’t do her career any favors. It’s quite incomprehensible for a road movie, quite sexist for a female empowerment message, and quite dark-ish for a movie for young girls. Critics said that Spears as much energy in the role as she did in a Pepsi commercial.

 

Mariah Carey

Like Spears, Mariah Carey’s film, Glitter, was made for her. And even though her vocal abilities and amazing, her acting is not. Critics and bloggers had a great time criticizing everything about this movie and calling Mariah’s acting “one-note.” But even after such an experience, she still continues to appear in films.

 

Roger Daltrey

The frontman of The Who starred in the musical adaptation of their rock opera Tommy and then in Lisztomania as Franz Liszt, which was a very frenetic, dizzying, harrowing movie. 

In the ’80s, Daltrey took acting quite seriously. He’s appeared in over 50 movies and television shows. 

 

Paul Mccartney

Paul McCartney still behaves on stage like he’s 20 years old, but in his onscreen roles, he is very reserved, even if he plays himself. He doubled down on bad performances as himself in Give My Regards to Broad Street, which Roger Ebert once called “about as close as you can get to non-movie.” 

 

Mick Jagger

In 1992, Jagger attempted a serious role in a sci-fi thriller Freejack. He plays Victor Vacendek, a hard-nosed mercenary sent to capture Emilio Estevez and he behaves pretty much the same way he does on stage, but it just doesn’t work here. 

 

Anthony Kiedis

Let’s be honest, Anthony Kiedis is a bad actor. He played a surf Nazi (yes, it’s a thing) in 1991’s Point Break, where his performance is very stilted and awkward Two years later, he appeared in the Charlie Sheen’s The Chase.

Have you watched any of these movies?
