Plenty of great musicians have also turned out impressive performances in films. There's David Bowie, Debbie Harry, Ice Cube, Björk, Elvis Presley, and... um... Snoop Dogg. On the flip side though, the graveyard of musicians producing woeful cinematic performances is heavily swollen, with the likes of Bon Jovi, Bob Dylan, Madonna and Mariah Carey and... um... Snoop Dogg chucking out some genuinely appalling excuses for "acting". This article is about neither of those sets of artists. Instead, this is a focus on musicians whose performances in films outshone their patchy musical careers. Perhaps they were renowned for churning out trashy pop hit after trashy pop hit, or created the most clichéd or overrated rock tracks around. Maybe they were just the least essential members of their respective bands. Regardless of the reasons for their less-than-glittering musical careers, these guys have still managed to show some impressive acting chops - whether just the once, or on a more regular basis. Sadly, Fred Durst's sex tape doesn't quite make the list. Sure, his performance in the video easily outstrips any of his work with Limp Bizkit, but the most impressive fakery in the clip actually comes from the poor woman forced to pretend she's enjoying copulating with his miserable features.
