Julian the actor?

Posted by Max Fischer on

Has anyone else here ever thought Julian could be a great actor?

I am under the impression that he hates doing that kind of stuff, making videos and stuff. I wish he would reconsider, because in my opinion he would absolutely rule at it. When he performs I have noticed that he is very theatrical.. and even his song writing style is theatrical. The best example of this, I think, is Take it or Leave it on Letterman. Plus, we need more Julian. I don't get enough Julian on a regualr basis. He takes too long to do his albums (even though I like the perfectionist side of him) and he rarely does stuff outside of concerts.. no TV gigs.

I wonder if some really cool director tried to get him to do something if he would do it?

i dont think julian will ever be a model .. have you forgotten that his father is in that business?
dont think he'd give his old man the satisfaction.[/quote]

Dammit!!! you're totally right!!!
i don't know how i could forget that LITTLE detail...
well, i just mean that he would be a great model... but yes, his dad is in the bussiness...so :(

[quote="Glameyer"]To be honest I met Julian in Febuary when I was walking around by NYU. He was with his wife Juliet. Julian seemed to be just a quiet shy person. I think that is why he is not much of a public spotlight type of artist. But when he performs he gives it everything he's got but still sometimes he's shy. But Jules is actually a really nice guy I talked to him for about ten minutes and his wife introduced herself to me they were both really nice and they acted as if they were normal everyday people.[/quote]
I love how you say, "they ACTED like they were normal everyday people"
:lol:

Another reason I thought Julian would be a good actor was because of his personality on IN TRANSIT. You could see him doing a lot of "characters" naturally.. just for fun.. and just being really creative and improvising.. I just have a feeling he would be a genius at it.

the strokes should remake fight club. julian could play the meatloaf role.

GREAT!!!!!

[quote]I agree, Max. It would be interesting to see him as different characters, and he definitely has the emotions to tap into for it

But I can understand why he wouldn't want to mess with the acting biz, because it looks like a pain in the ass.[/quote]

Hey , sadpanda. I agree. He has the emotions the instincts. He's just a great performer. A lot of great male singers seem to be good actors. David Bowie, Sting, Elvis, Sinatra.. female singers, too.

People say they thought Elvis could have been a really good dramatic actor if he had gone that route.. but the way he was managed it just didn't work out that way.

How cool would it be to see Julian in a Elvis kind of part. haha That's one other thing Julian has is the cool factor. He's like a modern day James Dean IMO.

Hey patientlyawaiting.

Cool, I hadn't heard about a video coming. Thanks for the info, Patiently.

Hey Kanzi.

I think you are right. I would definitely buy what he is selling. :D Plus he wouldn't have to talk if he was modeling. haha Seems like he doesn't like to talk a lot. But maybe acting could allow him to express himself without talking about himself. He said he could have been a writer if not a musician. So, maybe he would be a good filmmaker, too?

That's right! I forgot albert was going to go to filmschool or he was going when Julian and them hooked up before forming the Strokes..

Maybe Albert could direct.. they both write a script and Albert gets him to act..

Come on Albert! Do it for me.. :D

That was kind of my point though, hardtoexplain. IMO he IS an actor now when he performs his songs.

I just want more of it! :D He's a tease!

I cant see him being anyone other than himself.. so I dont want him to be an actor, unless he really wants to I guess. Hes a great musician.. he can keep doing that. ^^;
