Bowie on Screen: From 'Absolute Beginners' to 'Gunslingers Revenge'.

Bowie was reunited with his director on 'Jazzin' For Blue Jean', Julien Temple, on the feature length 'Absolute Beginners' in 1986 with Bowie making a brief appearance as Vernice Partners, an advertising executive.




'The Last Temptation of Christ' saw Bowie tackling his first role where he played a historical character in that of Pontius Pilate.
For some reason there are no English language clips from the film online but at least this way you get to see his remarkable haircut.


 





In 'The Linguini Incident' Bowie plays Monte, a bartender that needs to get married to get a Green Card. The trailer's tagline is 'Don't try this at home.'
They might be talking about watching this film.






Another cameo appearance followed, this time in 'Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me', David Lynch's feature length film sequel to his popular television series.



Bowie played another historical figure in 'Basquiat' with his performance as Andy Warhol.


 



In 'Gunslinger's Revenge' Bowie played a spaghetti Western bandit.
