Surprising Film Cameos By Music Stars Part II

By Matt Drake

Spread The Word

It’s astounding just how many musicians creep up into films unexpected. If my last list blew your mind, then hold on to what’s left of it….

10. Madonna – Desperately Seeking Susan (to name a few)

As I mentioned before Flea from The Red Hot Chilli Peppers has been round the acting block a few times amassing a total of 35 acting credits. However, Madonna easily rivals this with 26 credits, 21 of which in feature films (Not Bad Going). Also this song was used for the film:

9. Jack White (again) – Cold Mountain

That’s right, as well as appearing briefly as Elvis he also plays a serious role in a serious historical film riddled with inaccuracies.

8. Kanye West – Love Guru

As well as being a genius at singing, he is a genius actor too.

7. Billy Idol – The Wedding Singer

Billy Idol has a cameo in The Wedding Singer which is a film made when Adam Sandler wasn’t making completely terrible movies. The soundtrack is actually OK too, with blasts from The Smiths and, of course, Billy Idol:

6. David Bowie – Zoolander

David Bowie is a cool dude, and he looks especially cool in this brief cameo judging the underground “dance off” scene.

5. Joe Strummer – Mystery Train

The legend that is Joe Strummer, lead singer of The Clash appears in Mystery Train. He’s a better musician than actor though…

4. Billy Corgan – Spun

Bald headed Smashing Pumpkins front man dons a wig and glasses combo to take on a look of Andy Warhol in this bizzare cameo in the film Spun.

3. Huey lewis And The News – Back To The Future

When Marty’s band auditions for the school talent show they perform a rendition of The Power Of Love by Huey Lewis And The News, which is also played at the start of the movie. However the judge that tells Marty “sorry but you’re too darn loud” was actually Huey himself!

2. Snoop Dogg – Half Baked

Snoop appears briefly in this movie to do what he does best, smoke weed…

1, Blink 182 – American Pie

Blink 182 has a brief cameo watching Jim strip off online. Bet you never noticed that before did you? (Probably)
