Bon Jovi in U-571
^haha hell yes! i forgot about that one and it's probably the best cameo ever
Follow that Bird - Waylon Jennings being the most badass dude ever when i was a kid
and literally anything with a bad casting of Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers. that guy has popped up in so many bad roles: back to the future 2 and 3, the big lebowski, fear and loathing... and a bunch of other movies I'm not thinking of. he's like the go-to casting if you need an ugly/dumb villain... and it cracks me up whenever i see him
Davis Essex did two movies
That'll be the day with Ringo
And the follow up Star Dust which had Keith Moon
Willie in The Electric Horseman
Tom Petty as the leader at the hydroelectric dam in The Postman
Levon Helm as Gen John Bell Hood in Into the Electric Mist and Ridley in The Right Stuff
Gregg Allman as Will Gaines in Rush
Movie was terrible, but James Brown hanging out at a ski lodge in a ski sweater is priceless.
Cisco Pike with Kristofferson has a great scene (maybe more than 1?) with Doug Sahm. Unforgettable in its way.
Animal House has Robert Cray on bass with Otis Day and the Nights. Showing my age, one of my guitar students is in a brief scene in the background.
The Animals played a few songs in Hollywood movie about a political campaign.
200 Motels with Zappa and Ringo
Footloose starred Lori Singer, who is an active cellist.
Head, the Monkees movie had a bunch of LA upstarts, including Zappa.
The Hank Garland movie produced by Steve Vai, who had a scene as Hank Williams.
Dragnet episodes feature trumpet player Jack Sheldon in small roles, usually a witness.
Zachariah was a head western featuring Elvin Jones, Country Joe and the Fish, James Gang, Doug Kershaw (just looked it up). Dumb movie.
Then James Brown made a comeback in a Rocky sequel.
There's Hoagy Carmichael in To Have and Have Not.
The Marx Brothers - A Day at The Races & A Night At the Opera, are just two.
Eric Bishop, aka Jamie Foxx is a for-real classically trained musician.
Yes, I do think of Ringo as a musician.
I didn't pay much attention to his acting performance in Candy however.
Singles (1992) - with appearance of Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, Screaming Trees... Shot before Seattle scene became worldwide known..
... and Keith Richards in the Pirates of the Caribbean
High School Confidential--one of my all time favorite movies.
What a cast.
Drew Barrymore's father. A young Michael Landon, Russ Tamblyn, Jackie Coogan (uncle Fester) playing the drug kingpin, Charlie Chaplin's son, and of course Mamie Van Doren and her two enormous talents.
The opening scene with Jerry Lee Lewis playing in the pickup truck is priceless.
Art Garfunkel in Carnal Knowledge.
Paul Simon in Annie Hall.
Tom Waits has been in 39 films: https://m.imdb.com/name/nm0001823/filmotype/actor?ref_=m_nmfm_2
I discovered Gogol Bordello in a film called Everything Is Illuminated.
Paul Simon was in One Trick Pony, too.
The Lovin Spoonful were featured in it, also.
The Big Lebowski is one of my favorites and I was trying to think whether it had any musicians. Flea of course, I completely forgot!
What movie did Chet Baker do ?
I know there was a movie somewhat based on him in the late 50s-early 60s supposedly
I know Harpo was a musician did any of the other Marx’s play instruments?
I can’t remember which film but there’s a scene where Groucho is playing a nice arch top gibson in a boat on a pond and he stops playing and he throws it into the water ( although it turns into a cheaper guitar for the throwing)
I could never tell if it was actually him playing or not
I guess most those guys who started in vaudeville could play or sing
Chico plays the piano, amazingly. I don't remember Zeppo ever playing anything, but he seemed more into the singing. Groucho... I don't know. But I wouldn't put it past him. Bloke's amazing.
There’s tons of em to choose from, but off the top...Adventures in Babysitting, just to see the great Albert Collins
