Ron Young from "Little Caesar" was the bikie/biker who hits Arnie with a billiard cue in the beginning of "Terminator II".

 

Flea's been in a few - "Dudes", "Back to the future" and bandmate Anthony Kiedis was in "Point Break".

 

There are heaps of Rock artists who have played themselves in movies.

This is one of my favourites.

The mighty JLT in Blue de Ville(1986)!

 

Of course I'd love to see him also in Heavenly Kid in which he only performs one of my all time favorite tracks (Heartless). I was ready to make the ultimate AOR compilation in spotify (999 songs) with this as opener, but it's not there yet... :crying:

Bob Dylan was in "Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid" a western movie about the outlaw. He wrote the soundtrack for it too I think. Appears as 'Alias'

 

Plus Bjork in Dancer in the Dark - now that is a good movie!

'Wayne's World' ... Alice Cooper (being Alice Cooper) ... and didn't one of the guys from Slaughter play the music store assistant?

 

Alice Cooper is in 'Dark Shadows', too ('That is the UGLIEST woman I have ever seen!')

 

Chris Isaak has been in a few things (not just 'Friends'.)

 

Sting was in 'Dune' (jeez, that was a TERRIBLE film!)

 

Angry Anderson was in 'Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome'.

 

Phil Collins was the lead in 'Buster' ... he's been in a few other things, too, I think ...

I always thought it was Dana Strum of Slaughter in "Wayne's World" but it isn't.

While surfing the television channels I came across a biopicture on Jimi Hendrix, they Andre 300 of Outkast playing Jimi. And he did good job at it.

You can't chuck a stick in the UK without hitting some random soap 'star' who has tried to make a career out of singing ...
