This Weekend I’ll Mostly Be Listening to… Actors August 4, 2018

There’s been quite a crossover of musicians acting in movies over the years be it Eminen, Madonna, Jared Leto and so on. In recent times there have been quite a few Actors gaining popularity for their music. A friend went to see Kiefer Sutherland recently and was telling me how brilliant he was. Hugh Laurie is another who has recorded a number of decent albums. Ryan Gosling has a band Dead Mens Bones. Keanu Reeves plays in a band called Dogstar. There are loads.
The fact that some of these can sell out venues purely on their celebrity but some of them are actually quite good and sell records, sell out tours and so on.

Juliette Lewis is another of course and she was certainly heavily invested in her music. In a way the curious thing is how more don’t do that given the pace of film making.

Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio plays a bar singer in John Sayle’s ‘Limbo’ and absolutely does a number on a couple of classics, Tom Waits ‘Heart of Saturday Night’, Richard Thompson ‘Dimming of the Day’. Worth seeking out the film for that alone.
