Ariana, Zooey, J-Lo, Miley! When Actresses Become Songstresses

There seems to be a special musical buzz in the entertainment business at the moment reserved for screen actresses who are wanting to spread their wings in their career - and maybe earn some more money too. Whether it's Nickelodeon star Ariana Grande blowing everyone away with her stunning vocal range as she gears up to release her second album this summer, or indie favourite Jenny Lewis becoming ever more successful with her solo singing career after a good three years fronting a band, it appears that some actresses just can't resist testing their pipes in the recording studio. Even Hollywood sensation Scarlett Johansson dipped her toes in musical waters back in 2008 with her well-praised debut 'Anywhere I Lay My Head'.

While we're half expecting Keira Knightley to release a record any day now after singing on her latest drama 'Begin Again', we look at the film world's biggest female musical successes.

Jenny Lewis promoJenny Lewis: Singer-songwriter Jenny Lewis this week released Voyager, her critically acclaimed third studio album. Although best known for her time fronting indie favourites, Rilo Kiley, music wasn't actually Lewis's first career choice, instead the Vegas native was intially known as an actress. Her early showbiz experience mainly consisted of TV roles, with small parts in the likes of 'Baywatch', 'Brooklyn Bridge' and 'The New Twilight Zone' in the 80s and early 90s as well as film stints on 'Troop Beverly Hills' and 'The Wizard'. Her last major acting venture came with 1995's black and white drama 'Don's Plum' alongside Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire before she formed Rilo Kiley with then-boyfriend Blake Sennett.

Cool Thing Of The Week: Jenny Lewis' "Just One Of The Guys" Video, Featuring Anne Hathaway


Jenny Lewis Anne Hathaway Kristen Stewart Brie Larson

Jenny Lewis’ new music video might be the best thing on the internet this week. Not only is the song, Lewis’ new single Just One of the Guys all about gender roles and why they’re awful, but the video features kickass ladies Anne Hathaway, Kristen Stewart and Brie Larson, rocking out and – at some points – dressing up like dudes. It looks like it was fun to film. The former Rilo Kiley confirmed as much in a recent interview with GQ, where she promoted her upcoming album, Voyager.

Lewis is stepping up her solo game.

"We screamed with laughter all day, huddled behind the monitor," Lewis tells GQ. "I haven't laughed that hard since What About Bob? came out on laser disk."

The Wizard Review


Grim
I know a whole lot of people with vivid memories of The Wizard. It came out in 1989, during the heyday of the original eight-bit Nintendo videogame system, and, like a lot of Nintendo commercials, you can imagine that it was pretty convincing to the target audience. The movie is supposedly about Jimmy (Luke Edwards), a kid who has a specialized mental illness that makes him really good at videogames, and his older brother Corey (Fred Savage), who hauls Jimmy across the country to compete in a videogame championship. As is often the case in shlocky family films, this dangerous and senseless runaway jaunt somehow brings a broken family together.

But even the cheap melodrama can't match the movie's primary concern, which is advertising Nintendo and Nintendo accessories, especially the then-brand-new Super Mario Brothers 3. At the time, a ticket to The Wizard came with a miniature issue of Nintendo Power magazine; it should've come with a subscription. Come to think of it, the DVD should at least be packaged with some back issues, for proper ambience.

Runaway Daughters Review


Unbearable
Looking at the talent lined up for Runaway Daughters, I can only assume the whole affair is an elaborate joke that no one ever got.

This is a bad movie, folks, and here's why.
