Bizarre Acting Roles by 20 Famous Musicians
17th Century Bard in The Libertine (2004)
The eternally soused Pogues front man has an uncredited role in this Johnny Depp vehicle that goes balls deep in debauchery during the time of Charles II.
Mr. Kroeger in Wedding Crashers (2005)
Some folks may prefer him as the heel in Sling Blade, but here Yoakam gets to flex his underutilized comic chops as a man who can't divorce Rebecca de Mornay fast enough.
Billy "Catch" Pooler in Gone Fishin' (1997)
In a rare acting role where he didn't play some version of himself or one of his Red Headed Stranger-like musical personae, here Willie portrays an expert angler who assists Joe Pesci and Danny Glover in this buddy comedy that was criminally overlooked by the Oscars. We always thought Wille preferred golf.
