Top 5 On Friday

Over at The Music Memoirs they ask for the top 5 artists that should never have tried acting:

1. Macy Gray

2. David Bowie

3. Sting

4. Madonna

5. Susannah Hoffs

To be fair, I'm sure there are far more deserving candidates, but I've probably just not seen the films they've been in.

We matched on a couple. But I just couldn't hate on Bowie. ;)

Gene Simmons! And I'm talking about his movie roles, not his reality show.

I thought about Macy Gray too. I actually think Madonna was good in Who's That Girl.

ooo - sorry - I meant Desperately Seeking Susan. It is late - going to bed.

I have nothing to say since you put the Bowie on your list...nothing at all....

I rather liked David Bowie in Labyrinth ...

eeeeegads I have to agree. But luckily there are some good actors out there to make up for the shitty ones like Will Smith and Mark Wahlberg who totally surprises me in every movie I see him in.

Thanks for the comment.

Definitely some love for Bowie here. I thought he was okay in The Man Who Fell To Earth, and he was great playing himself in Extras, but apart from that, his name was one of the few that leaped into my head (I haven't seen him in Labyrinth).

Similarly, like The Bumbles, I thought Madonna was okay in Desperately Seeking Susan but thereafter she seems to have lost all quality control as far as picking movies goes (sadly Mark Wahlberg seems to have had a similar gift lately with The Happening and Max Payne).
