MELLENCAMP COULD’VE BEEN A MOVIE STAR


Posted: Oct 06, 2010

Today, John Mellencamp turns 59.  While he’s spent nearly three and a half decades making music, a few years back, the singer made a decision that, had he gone the other way, his life might have been a lot different today.  He told us about it.

 “You know they used to want me to be an actor all the time and I used to get more movie role offers.  That’s when I was – believe it or not, I used to not be as ugly as I am now.  And they gave me this script called Thelma & Louise and they said, ‘The guy wrote the part with you in mind John, you really gotta do this part.’  And I read the script and I thought, ‘Yeah, I get it but I don’t want to take my shirt off.’  So Brad Pitt took his shirt off and look what happened to Brad Pitt.  I was that close.”

 Mellencamp stuck to singing and that’s what he’ll be doing on the 16th in Boston.  John is appearing at T Bone Burnett’s Speaking Clock Revue along with Elton John, Elvis Costello, Gregg Allman and many others.  Learn more at Mellencamp.com.
