Had no idea Levon Helm acted. I wasn't familiar with The Band until about a year or two ago.

They're time has past but they had plenty of hits & they influenced many, enough to get them in the R&R H.o.F. & to have a young Martin Scorcese direct their farewell concert movie "The Last Waltz"... If you listened to the radio in the '70s', in between the progressive rock, heavy metal & Disco The Band managed to plant a tune that you'd find yourself singin' along with...

The Right Stuff movie was great though..

He managed to show up in a few movies with not totally insignificant supporting roles... He supplied the "Beamans" I think, in The Right Stuff...

I can remember another role as a minister in a Steven Sagal movie set in Kentucky about Hazardous waste & mining but I can't remember the movie title... I think he died in a church explosion in that one... I believe Marg Helgenburg (CSI) was the female lead in that one too...

Lest we forget, Chuck Yagers mechanic in the movie "The Right Stuff" or as he was more notably known:

drummer\singer on such memorable tunes as The Weight, Life is a Carnival, The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down, Up On Cripple Creek & many more in "The Band" of " The Last Waltz " fame.

I'm glad I could listen to their music when I was much younger.
