* Carol Heiss in ''Film/SnowWhiteAndTheThreeStooges'' was an attempt to make her the next Sonja Henie. It unfortunately didn't work out that well; Film/TheThreeStooges weren't even brought in until the studio realized Heiss couldn't carry the movie.

* 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 [[YoutubePoop poops]] made out of it by Italian "enthusiasts".

* Filipino boxer Manny Pacquiao did a string of movies since 2000 and usually played, well, a boxer. There were movies (''Anak ng Kumander'' and ''Wapakman'') where he didn't played a boxer (or himself) but these bombed at the box office and were panned by the viewers and critics.

* ''Film/WildAtHeart'', though not a straight example of this trope, is sort of a parody of the films of Music/ElvisPresley, with Creator/NicolasCage as the Elvis equivalent.
* Music/TomWaits has acted enough that he may not even count as a non-actor anymore.

* Music/TomWaits has acted enough in Creator/JimJarmusch's ''Film/DownByLaw''. He's had many supporting actor credits to his name, to the point that he may he's not even count as really a non-actor anymore.anymore, but this was one of his first roles and his only lead role to date.

* DavidLynch likes doing this in his movies. Since he's started his singing career, you could arguably call his film direction an example of this.
** ''Film/{{Dune}}'', as noted above, has Sting in a supporting role as one of the villains.
** ''Film/TwinPeaksFireWalkWithMe'' has Music/ChrisIsaak in a major role, and a memorable MindScrew of a cameo by a time-displaced Music/DavidBowie.



* ''Film/LostHighway'' has cameos by Marilyn Manson and Henry Rollins, in a ShowWithinAShow porn film.
