Film Club Rule #47: Musicians who act should avoid the Elvis trap.

In the wake of losing two of pop music’s titans this year, Jeff, Heather, and Rusty thought it fitting to consider musicians who tried acting starting with David Bowie and Prince. We talk about musicians who enjoyed the crossover success like Bowie and discuss pop stars who maybe missed the mark like Michael Jackson. What makes a good actor?
