350. Musicians Acting

December 6th, 2021

Given the, er, divided response to Lady Gaga's performance in House of Gucci, now seems like the perfect time to talk about musicians acting in movies. In addition to discussing the ways in which movies play with or against a musician's public persona, Emily and Ed talk about musicians who achieved recognition for their performances, those for whom recognition proved elusive, and those who transcended the need for films to bestow them with acclaim. They also talk about the deaths of Stephen Sondheim and Antony Sher, new details about the split between Will Ferrell and Adam McKay, and the news that The AV Club will soon be forced to move to L.A. from its longtime home of Chicago.
