I think I’ve said this before, but I find it odd that society thinks that musicians can act, but that actors can’t play music. What I mean is, we’re much more accepting of musicians who go onto acting than the reverse. If they’re bad, we ridicule them sure, but the idea of them acting, we don’t. So like, Whitney Houston, Sting, Little Stevie, Mandy Moore, whatever, they go into acting and we think it’s OK. But if an actor goes into music, I dunno, we ridicule it more.
The implication seems to be that we think acting is not as hard as playing music. And I think that’s interesting.
