Added DiffLines:

* Music/RebaMcEntire did have some acting chops before starring in the TV Movie ''Is There Life Out There?'' (inspired by her hit single at the time.) She had a few more before starring in the WB sitcom ''Series/{{Reba}}''. The much-shorter lived ''Series/MalibuCountry'' also qualifies, but by now she's practically made acting a second career.

* Bette Midler in ''The Rose''; though she had dabbled in the theatre in her early career, it was her first movie role. She went on to have a long and fairly successful career as an actress, reaching her peak in both fields at about the same time (the late [[TheEighties 1980s]] and early [[TheNineties 1990s]]).

* Italian alpine ski racer and former [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carabinieri carabiniere]] Alberto Tomba began, and ended, his film career with "Alex l'ariete" (''Alex the Ram''), where he played the eponymous "badass" cop. Predictably, his acting was beyond wooden, the film was a total mess and an abysmal failure at the box office. The film would be totally forgotten, if not for its SnarkBait status and the countless WebVideo/{{YouTube Poop}}s made out of it by Italian "enthusiasts".

* {{Music/Madonna}} in ''Film/DesperatelySeekingSusan'', where she played a pop musician. Led to an almost two-decades-long acting career, in which she generally did well if she was part of an ensemble (as in ''Film/DickTracy'', ''ALeagueOfTheirOwn'', and ''Film/{{Evita}}''), and usually didn't fare so well if she was appearing in a star vehicle (as in ''Film/SweptAway'').

** Sodebergh did this for himself in his surreal 1996 comedy ''Film/{{Shizopolis}}'', which stars the man himself in not one but two roles. Underneath all its weird and surreal humor, it's really about Soderbergh examining the crumbling of his marriage (his real life ex-wife appears as his characters wife) as well as his anxieties about the future of his directing career in the wake of a series of flops following his debut ''Film/SexLiesAndVideotape''
