Guitarist as actor

Can a stoned guitarist–namely one of the Rolling Stones–make a good actor? Well, MSNBC contributor Dave White has a take:

You know Keith Richards is in “Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End,” right? He plays Johnny Depp’s pirate papa. And without getting too review-y and spoiler-ish … I have to gush a little about Richards’ performance: it’s the most amazing two minutes of Acting/Not Acting I’ve seen all year. If the man’s goal was to reduce himself to pure space and still be physically, three-dimensionally present, then he should win an award for succeeding at that. Other more cruel people, cynics, may dismissively describe this sort of edgy work as simply “being drunk.”
