Music Trivia -> Singers Who Act -> A

All too often, a performer gets it into their head that now they've reach some margin of fame in a band, they can also act! Some make the leap ok like Will Smith, others like Vanilla Ice are best left forgotten.

Notable Song Credits
Comments & Submittor Name
Aaliyah (Haughton) Romeo Must Die, Queen of the Damned In "Queen of the Damned", her voice was overdubbed by her brother, Rashad Haughton, as she had died shortly after principal photography was completed. - kasumi
Aaron Carter Liberty's Kids, Fat Albert, Lizzie McGuire, Sabrina, the Teenage Witch, and 7th Heaven. I haven't seen any of these movies or shows. - Travis
Aaron Carter Lizzie McGuire, Supercross As brother of Nick Carter of Backstreet Boys, his acting credits are mostly complimentary co-star or guest starring. - Rocky Mak
Aaron Carter Popstar, Supercross, Fat Albert Nick BSB's little bro (who's not so little anymore mind you) did fairly well in these movies although they didn't turn him into the next big Hollywood thing overnight. Starring in more movies could improve his acting skills though. - Didrick
Adam Ant The Equalizer Adam Ant starred as a violent child molester/sex preditor. - 1988 Jailbait
Adam Ant Cold Steel, World Gone Wild, Sweetwater, Face Down, Cyber Bandits, Desert Winds, Love Bites, Spellcaster, Nomads, Slam Dance, Sunset Heat, Trust Me   - Michael Prymula
Adam Horovitz (King Ad Roc of The Beastie Boys) Lost Angels He played (what else?) a troubled teen. - Rap
Adam Levine Begin Again Adam plays David Kohl, Gretta James' ex-boyfriend (she's played by Keira Knightley). I wasn't too impressed with the movie, but I LOVE "Lost Stars"! - wand erection
Adriana Caselotti Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs She unfortunately turned up to be a one-note actress, as she was contractually barred from making any further starring/voice roles as Walt Disney wanted to stick to a kayfabe of sorts, leaving their early voice talents uncredited. Caselotti did appear in "The Wizard of Oz" and "It's a Wonderful Life", albeit in bit roles. - Maryellen Larkin
Aileen Quinn Annie Besides having singing parts as the title character in the 1982 musical, she also later fronted a rockabilly band named "The Leapin' Lizards", after her character's signature catchphrase. - Sally Shine
Alan Frew Street Legal  He plays a client who needs help fighting a paternity suit. - Celeste
Alanis Morissette Dogma She appears for a short time in Dogma as God. - Julie
Alanis Morissette You Can't Do That On Television She only lasted a few episodes before she trotted off to do her own thing. Frankly I think she was better off because look at where she's at now. - Celeste
Alex Greenwald played Seth Devlin in Donnie Darko He's the lead singer in the group Phantom Planet - Mark Greenberg
Alice Cooper Prince of Darkness Not a speaking part, and listed in the credit's as "Street Sicko". - princejellyfish
Alicia Keys Smokin' Aces Stick to your day job, Alicia. - soul ii
Amy Grant A Song From The Heart Amy did a very good portrayal of a blind music teacher and cellist in this made for TV inspirational drama. - Bradley Olson
Andrea Corr Evita In addition to Madonna, who played the title role, the lead singer of the Irish rock group The Corrs also had a part in the film adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber's rock opera "Evita." Her part, as Peron's mistress, is very small, appearing on screen for only a few minutes, but she played it well nonetheless. - Raphael
Andrew E. Humanap Ka ng Panget Andrew's success as a rapper in the Philippines eventually led to an acting career, often appearing in comedy films based on his songs, and later in dramatic roles and soap operas. - Sally Shine
Ann-Margaret Viva Las Vegas, Bye-Bye Birdie, The Swinger, Carnal Knowledge, Tommy, Grumpy Old Men, 52 Pick-Up  And who can forget Ann-Margrock on "The Flintstones"? - She
Anna Maria Alberghetti Cinderfella She starred with Jerry Lewis. - Sheila Oh
Anthony Keidis  Jokes My Folks Never Told Me, F.I.S.T., Point Blank, The Chase. He had a bit part in The Chase and Point Blank but Jokes My Folks Never Told Me was Anthony's first really big acting role. - Celeste
Aretha Franklin The Blues Brothers She played the long-suffering wife of one of the band members. - Sheila Oh
Ari Welkom (Cosmic Suckerpunch) The Middle The lead singer of the neo-psychedelic band Cosmic Suckerpunch had a guest starring role as the John Cougar Mellencamp look alike in the 100th episode of "The Middle." - The Skuz
Art Garfunkel Catch-22, Carnal Knowledge Surprisingly good actor; it's a shame he didn't do more films. - Amy
Art Garfunkel Bad Timing: A Sensual Obsession He did do a little more acting, but this X-rated (later R-rated) film all but killed his movie career and did more solo work in music. - To Amy
Ashanti The Muppets' Wizard of Oz, John Tucker Must Die, Coach Carter I myself have only seen the first one, so I can't say anything about the other two. As Dorothy, though, she was pretty bad (worse, she had more screentime than the titular Muppets- the whole thing seemed just an excuse to showcase her sorry acting). - helena
Ashlee Simpson 7th Heaven, Undiscovered Not counting "Ashlee Simpson Show" (reality series), she has had mixed success. - Rocky Mak
Avril Lavigne Over The Hedge, Fast Food Nation, The Flock  - Michael Prymula
