ACTOR/ACTRESS TURNED MUSICIAN?

There is a saying that goes something along the lines of: the actors and actresses want to be musicians and the musicians want to be actors and actresses. Lets celebrate Hollywood actors and actresses that can carry a tune (or have tried).

Daniel Pujol (Pujol) Talks David Duchovny’s Hell or Highwater

"So, for the sake of this piece, I’m going to treat this like a different beast, one of narrative utility occurring within an established format, and ride that pony under the microscope. I’m thinking one guy, saying some stuff into a microphone, for better or for worse within the confines of a culturally established artistic framework: the rock album. Not “this-rock” or “that-rock,” just “rock-rock.”

This album seems to come from a place where the idea of making an album serves a certain cultural function. Duchovny inserts his “rock album agency” into a mid-20th-century, sunset-staring, male singer-songwriter archetype with a little 2D social commentary.

That’s not a criticism, it’s an observation. Remember, he’s primarily an actor who just started playing guitar; however, he has a legit writing background. Which, to me, makes that choice even more interesting, because he almost has a Ph.D. Why grab for that archetype?"
