Sonic Youth’s drummer has a bit of an acting bone and has been in a ton of movies—including Ferris Bueller’s Day Off!
The extras and minor actors in 1986's “Ferris Bueller's Day Off” can do some serious name dropping if they wanted to.
Not only did the movie have such stars as Matthew Broderick, Mia Sara, Ben Stein and Charlie Sheen, but it also had the drummer from the pivitol band Sonic Youth. Chances are you probably missed him.
The movie takes Bueller and his companions to a car parking garage to keep his friend's dad's 1961 Ferrari GT California safe while exploring Chicago.
The car attendants proceed to take the car out for an exciting joyride, racking up the miles that the main crew tried desperately to keep at a minimum. The man behind the wheel is none other than Richard Edson, Sonic Youth's drummer.
Besides that famous film, Edson has over 100 acting credits to his name including “Platoon,” “Do the Right Thing,” and “Stranger than Paradise.” The top-notch musician apparently had a very strong acting bone and wasn't afraid to show it off!
