Swaggering, thick-lipped Brit Mick Jagger has been the lead singer and (along with guitarist Keith Richards) main songwriter for the consistently popular and influential rock band The Rolling Stones since 1962. His first feature film appearance, in 1969's Sympathy for the Devil, was in the company of the Stones. One year later, Jagger made his solo acting bow in Ned Kelly, in which he was ideally cast as "Australia's Jesse James." Over the next several years, the musician would continually make appearances on screen, in movies like Freejack, Bent, The Man from Elysian Feilds, and the Bank Job.
