Manson's Acting Portfolio, More Crossover, and Interactive Video Coming Soon


The QLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for Springfield’s Real Rock, 92.7 QLZ

 

Manson's acting portfolio

 

Our focus today is in the actor’s studio where several rock stars are crossing over to the world of being in front of the camera … and not for music videos. We turn our attention first to Marilyn Manson. The shock-rocker isn’t new to being an actor. Last year he starred in the bizarre short-run series Wrong Cops. Recently he’s also been used as the voice of Shadow for the ABC production of Peter Pan and also showed up in a Funny or Die clip about scary fire-side ghost stories. Now the make-upped rocker is completely out of character for a cameo in East Bound and Down where he plays a server at the restaurant Jelly Beans. In the short clip of the cult HBO comedy, Manson is seen roller-skating up to the table where Danny McBride is talking to his wife about divorce. Manson is seen wearing no makeup and short orange shorts. It’s a must see.

 

 

More crossover

 

Meanwhile, a much longer clip of the web series Ghost Ghirls features the likes of Dave Grohl and actor/musician Jack Black … oh yeah, Val Kilmer is also in the show … all acting as members of a band named Sweetriver and the Hucleberry Dogs.

 

 

Interactive video coming soon

 

Without much fanfare, Queens of the Stone Age released a trailer for what looks like a major produced video for the tune “Vampyre of Time and Memory”. Queens are seen sitting around a piano in a room full of taxidermed animals. Then there’s a close up of front man Josh Homme who spins around a wand with a bear or pig head tip. Bizarre. Anyway, the final card in the minute-long preview says “Coming Soon, an interactive music video.” It also shows that there are a few hands involved including Matador, the record company, The Creators Project, Intel, and the alternative media outlet Vice. With that kind of firepower, it’s sure to be a pretty stellar project. Just when will it come out and how will it be interactive … that’s still unclear.
