Music people in the movies

I was watching the film Slaughterhouse Rulez the other night for some reason and I was astonished to see the name Crispian Mills as the director as the end credits rolled. Crispian Mills of faux-mystical toff rockers Kula Shaker had directed this film.

I’m always a fan of cross pollination between music and films - what are your favourite examples of this?
