Generally good or generally bad? On one hand there are acts like Will Smith and Mark Wahlberg…whose music careers people have already forgotten because of their success as actors. Does anybody even remember “Marky Mark”? Granted, these two aren’t among the best actors out there, but the camera loves them, and fortunately for them, their acting careers are enough for even critics to take them seriously, what with all the musician-actor skeptics.
But on the other hand, there are tragedies like Mariah Carey. Glitter has got to be the musician movie failure of the century. It’s one of those movies you make jokes of, poor promoters. And there’s Madonna, who seems very confident in her acting career, contrary to the opinion of just about everybody.
Don’t even get me started on the Asian actors. Oh, why can’t they just concentrate on their music? Honestly, even when they make good actors, unless they’ve failed as musicians (See: Marky Mark), I think going for acting careers is trying too hard. It gives the impression that they were never really passionate about music, and they just want the fame…any way they can get it.
I love i,Robot though. What? Don’t look at me like that haha~
