    There are plenty of movies with musicians that may or may not fit the bill here, but the one that first come to mind for me is Two-lane blacktop starring James Taylor and Dennis Wilson.
    Another one was Lock stock and two smoking barrels with Vinnie Jones (Soccer player) but I guess he's more or less a movie star already. Going off on this tangent I could even name Conan the barbarian I guess, starring a body-builder, a gymnast and a wind-surfer IIRC [​IMG] But now I'm getting silly...
    Then there are all the stand up comedians whose starred in movies. This means I'll get to mention one of my favorites again; The adventures of Ford Fairlane starring Andrew Dice Clay (I don't care how many movies he's been in, this guy is definitively not an actor [​IMG] )
    Oh, and welcome to the forum [​IMG]
