Bizarre Acting Roles by 20 Famous Musicians
Freak Storm in Johnny Suede (1991)
The literary Australian goth-rocker co-stars as an albino lounge singer in this hepcat faux-musician biopic remembered today (if at all) as the movie Brad Pitt starred in between Thelma & Louise and A River Runs Through It. However, "Rumble" guitar great Link Wray did do the soundtrack.
Rhonda the Waitress in Feeling Minnesota (1996)
The same year she earned reams of praise in The People vs. Larry Flynt, Love appeared in this Keanu Reeves Gen-X dark comedy as Vincent D'Onofrio's somewhat out-of-it server. Go figure.
Patti Rasnick in Light of Day (1997)
The eternally badass rocker basically played herself alongside Michael J. Fox -- as siblings and fellow members of "the Barbusters" -- in this working-class family drama, but it's Joan Jett, so we're not complaining.
Pontius Pilate in The Last Temptation of Christ (1989)
Now this is some inspired casting: the man who sold the world as the man who washed his hands of Jesus' ultimate fate.
