Music Trivia -> Singers Who Act -> J

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.

Comments & Submittor Name
Ja Rule Half Past Dead, Turn It Up, The Cookout, Scary Movie 3, Fast And The Furious, Assault On Prencinct 13, Furnace Not too bad actually. - Michael Prymula
Jack Black Tenacious D In the Pick Of Destiny,School Of Rock,and Saving Silverman  - Yoni
Jack White Cold Mountain, Walk Hard, coffee and Cigarettes  - Charly
Jackie Clarke The Jaquie Brown Diaries OK, Jaquie Brown is a hot-shot reporter who wants to be famous, but since people kept confusing her with Jackie Clarke, the well-respected singer and NZ Idol judge, things got ugly.

Since the show is based on reality, and the people are real, hardly any acting is needed. But this episode is funny, yet sad at the same time. Don't think Brady Quinn wants to be 'the other' Brady (if Tom Brady were still healthy)? - Rocky Mak
Jackie Evancho The Company You Keep Besides being well-known as a classical crossover singer, Evancho also moonlighted as an actress, first appearing in a theatre production of High School Musical with Pittsburgh Musical Theater in 2007, and also in the political thriller "The Company You Keep" in 2012, playing the role of a daughter of a former Weather Underground militant. - Felicity Merriman
Jadakiss Ride Or Die, The Roaches  - Michael Prymula
James Taylor Two-Lane Blacktop  - oldsongs
Janet Jackson Penny on Good Times I saw the Janet Jackson entry and thought I would add to it. She played this role on the show's last season - Tim Hall
Janet Jackson Poetic Justice, Nutty Professor II: The Klumps She was great in Poetic Justice, and Nutty Professor II was hilarious! - redsimba
Jared Leto Chapter 27, Lonely Hearts, Lord Of War, Alexander, Panic Room, Highway, Sol Goode, Sunset Strip, Requiem For A Dream, American Psycho, and 13 more 13 other movies - gSREDzy
Jason Bonham Rock Star Dumb movie, but I'm sure many people liked it. Jason of course is the SON of the late great John Bonzo Bonham of Led Zeppelin. Jason plays a drummer in this movie, which in real life he is a drummer and taught by the best! His DAD. He will be drumming for the upcoming Led Zeppelin Reunion Gig at the O2 Arena in London. Dec. 10th, 2007. It's actually a Charity Event, but Jimmy Page himself stated in Guitar World/Player...recently. He'd like to perform a few more shows, otherwise why let the genie out of the bottle at all. AND THAT is NOT his exact words. My apologies. I don't have the article handy. - ZepFan
Jay-Z State Property, Streets Is Watching  - Michael Prymula
Jennifer Hudson Dreamgirls She WON Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for Sreamgirls (the movie version of the musical). So much for Simon Cowell saying she won't mount to much. TAKE THAT! - Rocky Mak
Jennifer Lopez Home She plays the role of Tips MyMom - Adam
Jennifer Lopez Wedding Planner, Angel Eyes, Enough and some others I can't think of right now... AWESOME actress! - flipside
Jesse McCartney Keith, Hanna Montana, Summerland Well, his acting roles are mostly to appeal the teens (especially as a love interest of Hanna Montana) , but most of the roles in recent years are voice-overs for cartoons or animations. - Rocky Mak
Jessica Simpson The Dukes of Hazard, Employee Of The Month Her acting makes her singing look good. - stefan
Jewel Ride With The Devil  - Michael Prymula
Jill Scott Seemore's Playhouse Seemore's Playhouse was a short-lived puppet show that aired on PBS Kids during the early 2000's. Jill Scott was one of a few actresses who made a guest appearance in the "Knock-Knock" segment where the puppets would tell knock-knock jokes to the audience. - Secret
Jimmie Dale Gilmore The Big Lebowski He's great in his one scene as a bowler who pisses off John Goodman - Sutch
Jimmy Page Blow Up Jimmy Page as himself with The Yardbirds. The movie is circa 1966. Neither good or bad. Who am I to judge? - ZepFan
Joan Jett Light Of Day She starred with Michael J. Fox. Not bad, but she hasn't been in a movie since. - Sherock
Joe Walsh Starred as himself in Duckman He even reworked the lyrics to Life's Been Good with Duckman's brand of raunchy lyrics. - Celeste
John Lennon How I Won the War This film also starred Roy Kinnear who co-starred in the Beatles movie Help! - Paul Warren
John Mellencamp Falling From Grace He played the lead role, a burned-out country singer, and also directed. - Indy
John Schneider  The Dukes of Hazzard, The Haves and the Have Nots, other movies  Country Singer - Heather
