8. David Bowie as Andy Warhol

Character: Andy Warhol

Film: Basquiat

Year Released: 1996

The real knockout of Schnabel's 1998 love letter to contemporary Jean-Michel Basquiat isn't the lead role, but David Bowie's endearingly odd take on Andy Warhol. Watching one pop culture icon take on another, so many years after Warhol's death feels a bit campy at first(his hair makes it hard to not expect him to sing "Magic Dance"), but the combination is too magical to resist. A magic that is only adds the the undying celebrity of both talented men.
