While great pipes and a cute face don’t always allow pop stars to instantly become leading men or ladies (witness 2003’s From Justin to Kelly), many musical artists do succeed in bringing a heady mix of charisma and raw talent to the screen. Be it in a bit part or carrying the whole show, these magnificent multi-hyphenates also offer a different type of star text to enrich and complicate their roles. In this episode, FC Digital Producer Violet Lucca discusses the bright lights in the musician-actor galaxy with Eric Hynes, curator of film at the Museum of the Moving Image, and Shonni Enelow, the author of Method Acting and Its Discontents: On American Psycho-drama and assistant professor of English at Fordham University.
