Age of the Rock Video Part 2 : Celebrities

Here we are again!  My it has been a while!  I figured since this list could go on for a while I’d roll with it.  There is never a shortage of actors who would be willing to participate in a music video since I suppose it’s a nice reprieve from long movie rolls and the exposure is spectacular!  That video with Daniel Radcliffe is infamous now!  Here are some new and old ones to give you a “That was them?” moment.

Thora Birch and Bill Paxton in Limp Bizkit – Eat You Alive

Call me surprised when I finally saw Thora Birch in something after some years and it was a Limp Bizkit video.  Imagine my further surprise when I also noticed Bill Paxton in the same video.  To start, this video looks as if filmed in Middleburg, FL (if you know this would be a hilarious fact) and second I’m a bit creeped out by the…kidnapped theme displayed here.

Daniel Radcliffe in Slow Club – Beginners

It is actually a good video once you get past the female voice coming out of Harry Potter’s mouth.

Alicia Silverstone in Aerosmith’s videos – Cryin’, Crazy, Amazing

That’s right!  Three videos!  But to top that off let’s add the other celebrities in these videos.  Stephen Dorff and Josh Holloway were in Cryin’, Liv Tyler was in Crazy and Jason London in Amazing!

Keanu Reeves in Paula Abdul – Rush, Rush

Yeah, see this one I’ve known about since it came out because it was after Bill and Ted but before Speed.  And nothing seems more out of place to tell you the truth.  Nice reference to Rebel Without A Cause though.

Bill Paxton and Judge Reinhold in Pat Benatar – Shadows of the Night

What the hell!  Well, the concept is amazing and the fact that it has Nazi and WW2 themed atmosphere is cool, but it took me a while to identify those two…or at least Bill Paxton.  And the song really doesn’t fit the theme too much but I supposed for Pat and the 80’s it just works.

Jeremy Sisto in Twisted Sister – We’re Not Gonna Take It

Everyone has seen this but this version is the extended and seriously, I would like to point out that child abuse can be more than physical.  Damn!  You really wanted to punch that dad in the nuts by the time the music started!
