Music Trivia -> Singers Who Act -> B

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
B. B. King Into the Night He plays a busker in a parking lot in a cameo appearance. Also, he performs the opening title song. This cult classic has a galaxy of stars including the now better known Jeff Goldblum and Michelle Pfeifer as well as seasoned veterans like Dan Ackroyd and even David Bowie (surprise!). If you ain't seen this movie yet I STRONGLY recommend you do so. This is big time entertainment, it's what action films ought to be. Go and see it.. - Get Up And GO GO GO GO...
Backstreet Boys Arthur: It's Only Rock N Roll They had a small role in Arthur which was really good. - Celeste
Barry McGuire The President's Analyst He played, what else, a folk singer. - Opie M.
Beanie Sigel State Property, State Property 2, Paper Soldiers, Death Of A Dynasty  - Michael Prymula
Beyonce Knowles Obsessed I suppose she shows some acting talent here, but still messes up the movie, assuming it had anything going for it for her to mess up. She palys the wife of a man stalked by a crazed woman (the latter played by Ali Larter). The wife played by Beyonce is so insanely jealous (even before she knows anything of the stalking) that she is sometimes as scary as the stalker! - Marlene L. Ram
Beyonce Knowles Dreamgirls, the Pink Panther, Austin Powers Goldmember I see a world domination scheme hatching... First she gains control of the pop/R&B music market, then she goes on to try to do the same with Hollywood! Watch out for this woman!!!!! - Emi

Big Daddy Kane Posse, Meteor Man, Dead Heist  - Michael Prymula
Big Pun Urban Meance, Whiteboyz, Thicker Than Water  - Michael Prymula
Billie Piper Doctor Who, Spirit Trap, The Ruby In The Smoke Yes, Rose Tyler had a singing career, from 1998-2003. I can fondly remember dancing around to "Because We Want To" as a child. She's also occasionally credited as "Billie" but this is only for her first album. - Eve
Billy Joel Oliver & Company "Pressure" singer did the "Dodger" character voice in one of the Disney movies back in '88. - Mickey D.
Billy Ray Cyrus Doc, Mulholland Drive, Hannah Montana  - Jonathan

Brian Vander Ark Rock Star (2001), Mergers & Acquisitions, Dead & Breakfast, This Space Between Us, Road Kill Lead Singer for The Verve Pipe (Freshmen, Photograph) Not a bad actor, given that he only had bit parts. He has also composed a lot of soundtrack music to these movies and others. - Gordon
