Inherit the Wind

Inherit the Wind

Gene Kelly is known primarily for his singing and dancing, but in Inherit the Wind he plays a journalist who does neither. Frank Sinatra, Cher, and Jennifer Hudson are examples of musicians who crossed over to acting and won Oscars for their work. Why do you think musicians with no theater training can make such good actors? Who’s your favorite musician-turned-thespian?
