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
Patrick Stump Law & Order Stump played 'Marty Dressler' in the episode 'Darkness'. I think he was pretty good. - Amanda
Patrick Stump Star VS. The Forces of Evil He voiced Ruberiot, the royal muscian. - Tessa C
Patti Page Elmer Gantry, Dondi, Boys' Night Out Like Connie Francis, a pop superstar of the Baby Boomer era who appeared in some largely forgettable films. At least she had a minor hit with the title song from "Boys' Night Out." But her real contribution to American pop culture remains her music. - Chris
Patty Duke Valley of the Dolls "Don't Just Stand There" would have been a disaster except for the heroics of the sound engineers who were able to cover up her obvious lack of singing talent. Subsequent releases would fall far short of her success with her first hit record. It is a good thing that she didn't quit her day job with the "Patty Duke Show" to become a full-time pop singer. - Barry Disbrow
Paul McCartney All the Beatles films and "Give My Regards To Broad Street". None of the Beatles would be considered master thespians. - beegles
Paul Simon Annie Hall He plays a record producer who charms Diane Keaton - Sutch
Paul Simon One Trick Pony  - oldsongs
Paul Weller Sherlock Paul played a dead Viking in the Sherlock episode "The FInal Problem" - LadyCPlum
Paula Abdul Junior High School, Touched By Evil, The Waiting Game  - Michael Prymula
Peter Frampton Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart Club Band not too good - KL Fan
Phil Collins Miami Vice, Buster Along with having alot of his songs played throughout the series, he played in an episode called "Phil the Shill". Was also in a movie about a bank robber in the star role. - Brad Johnson
Phil Collins Hook When Peter Banning (played by the late Robin Williams) calls for an investigation on his missing children, Phil appears as the Chief of London Police. - Chowder
Phil Collins Buster I was surprised more by his cursing than his acting. - britrock
Phil Collins Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Before becoming famous as the lead singer of Genesis, growing up in England Phil Collins was a child performer doing some theatre as well appearing in some movies and TV shows. I just heard recently he played one of the banished children in the village of the fictional country of Vulgaria in the 1968 movie Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. But the scene(s) he was in were edited out of the final cut of the movie. So maybe that shouldn't count but I still think it's interesting. - Edward
Phil Collins A Hard Day's Night Phil Collins was around 14 years old when he starred in this film. He was known locally as a child theater actor and his role in the play "Oliver" was greatly acclaimed. In this Beatles thriller Phil is just a face in a crowd, another guy in the audience watching the Beatles play live in an auditorium. - Beatle Baby
Phil Collins Frauds Phil stars in this dark comedy set in Australia as Roland, a fraudulent insurance agent hired by a couple who want to file a false claim. Roland is an absolute pest, he's greedy, always hounding his clients and loves to do acts of mischief just for the hell of it. He loves to pull pranks on others and laugh, IOW he likes to "fuck shit up". - Sussudio is My Girlfriend
Pink Catacombs  - Michael Prymula
Placebo Velvet Goldmine Brian Molko of Placebo appeared briefly in Velvet Goldmine, as the lead singer of 'The Flaming Creatures', a glam rock band, covering T-Rex's '20th Century Boy'. Steve Hewitt, Placebo's Drummer, also played in The Flaming Creatures, and Stefan Ostall appeared as Polly Small's bassist. - MissPie
Pras Mystery Men, Feel the Noise, Turn It Up, Mutant Chronicles Not that good of an actor or rapper IMO - Michael Prymula
Prince Purple Rain; Under The Cherry Moon His Purpleness did a good job playing basically himself once--but not twice. - Agrimorfee
