The Top 10 Greatest Musicians-Turned-Actors

The Top 10 Greatest Musicians-Turned-Actors Of All Time Ever
1. R. Kelly (Trapped in the Closet)
2. Justin Guarini (From Justin To Kelly)
3. Meat Loaf (Spice World, Pelts, Fight Club, BloodRayne, Rocky Horror Picture Show, everything else)
4. Mark Wahlberg (Fear, Boogie Nights, Planet of the Apes, everything else)
5. Vanilla Ice (Cool As Ice)
6. The Spice Girls (Spice World)
7. Britney Spears (Crossroads)
8. Will Smith (Fresh Prince of Bel Air, The Pursuit of Happyness, pretty much everything but there's a lot I haven't seen yet)
9. Dolly Parton (Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, Rhinestone, 9 to 5)
10. Bjork (Dancer in the Dark)

Honorable mentions: David Bowie (Labyrinth, Zoolander, nothing else that's notable), Courtney Love (The People vs. Larry Flynt), Prince (Purple Rain), Michael Jackson (Moonwalker, Captain EO, The Wiz), Mariah Carey (Glitter), Ice Cube (Anaconda), Ice-T (Tank Girl, New Jack City from what I hear, but I saw it like a million years ago and don't remember it), Snoop Dogg (Starsky & Hutch), Method Man & Redman (Too High).

This list is based on acting ability. So like, Spice World is definitely a better movie than Cool As Ice, but Vanilla Ice is still a more talented actor than the Spice Girls are. And Mark Wahlberg is so high because he's done a lot, and he's consistently great in everything. Same with Meat Loaf, who I had assumed would be toward the end of the list, but then when I looked at his filmography I was fucking blown away by just how many movies I've loved him in.

Here are the individual Spice Girls rated on acting ability:
1. Melanie Brown (Scary Spice)
2. Emma Bunton (Baby Spice)
3. Victoria Adams (Posh Spice)
4. Geri Halliwell (Ginger Spice)
5. Melanie Chisholm (Sporty Spice)

And again, that's just the order in which their talent shines as actors. If I were to rate them overall as people, it would look like this:
1. Geri/Ginger
2. Emma/Baby
3. Mel B/Scary
4. Victoria/Posh
5. Mel C/Sporty

Sporty and Posh are hard to decide between, they're kinda tied. Edit: Victoria is totally better because of this:
"My Spanish is improving and I can now ask: 'Dónde Gucci?' ('Where is Gucci?'). I also can say: 'Tienes un Bentley?' ('Do you have a Bentley?')" - About her Spanish-speaking skills.
That list is also how I would rate them as solo musicians, but Posh and Mel C would be switched. Victoria's solo stuff is not very exciting.
