Lists: Famous actors in music videos you may have forgotten about
By Allison Stewart
Charlize Theron's ninja-slaying appearance in Killers' frontman Brandon Flowers' new "Crossfire" video is the latest in a long and occasionally distinguished tradition of famous actors and actresses doing novelty turns in music videos.
For every well-documented historical example (Courtney Cox + Bruce Springsteen, Angelina Jolie + The Stones, Alicia Silverstone + Aerosmith) that exists, there are dozens of long-forgotten, equally interesting ones.
A random sampling of Click Track's favorites (leave yours in the comments):
7. AC/DC + Arnold Schwarzenegger: "Big Gun"
6. Dido + David Boreanaz: "White Flag"
(Mickey Rourke and Madonna after the jump - not together, though.)
5. Enrique Iglesias + Mickey Rourke & Jennifer Love Hewitt:
4. Christina Aguilera + Josh Duhamel aka "The guy in the yellow shirt at 1:38": "Genie in a Bottle"
2. Smog + a one-eyed Chloe Sevigny: "I Feel Like the Mother of the World"
And one we can't verify even after eleven slo-mo viewings, though we're sure he's in there somewhere:
1.Madonna + Benicio Del Toro, "Take a Bow"
