When Ethan Hawke, Quenton Tarrentino, Uma Thurman, Natasha Richardson, Joe Pesci & Marisa Tome all came to see Jimmy at the same time one night at 'Birdlland', a New York Times reporter asked why they were all there? Ethan answered we're hear to learn acting from Jimmy.
Well anyone who's witnessed Jimmy's dramatic, emotion-filled performances can testify how real this is coming straight for his heart and real life experiences.
 
Here's a couple flicks Jimmy has acted in.......
 
Twin Peaks "Fire Walk With Me" ~ Jimmy plays a singing ghost belting out "Sycamore Trees" for Director 'David Lynch':

In "Chelsea Walls" Jimmy plays the part of "Skinny Bones" as a hip resident of the Chelsea Hotel, and later belts out his version of John Lennon's "Jealous Guy" for Director 'Ethan Hawke' in the hotel night club.  Ethan was worried they never get the liscence for the use Lennon's song cause he thought Yoko would want a million dollars for it, lol, but Jimmy would not budge on doing that song! When Ethan finally got Yoko and told her it was Jimmy Scott she said she & John LOVED Jimmy so he could have the song for free, lol!!!

"Be Kind Rewind" ~ 'Michel Gondry' is another Director that really digs Jimmy.  We had fun on the set with Danny Glover, McCoy Tyner, Booker T., & Steve Cropper.

NICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Thumbs%20UpClap
 
I never watched Twin Peaks and I have not seen the films, but I have no doubt Jimmy was a STAR!!StarStar
 
I have heard him sing at thye beginning of a film a like a lot, but the name escapes me.  CRS!!LOL  We've discussed it before and I know you'll remember the name of that film. LOL!
 
Jimmy is one of very few vocalists who have made the transition from music to film.  YOU GO JIMMY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cool dream,
  I think you may be referring to the movie "Lackawanna Blues" (HBO~a few years ago) where Jimmy's song 
"If Ever I Lost You" (my Savoy fave from 1960) was used in the opening of the film, it's the first song you hear.

The track is from the 1960 Savoy album "THE FABULOUS SONGS OF JIMMY SCOTT".
'Bill Cosby' also used a track from that album in 1993 on his t.v. show where he & Claire debate and make a bet on when it was released.....only on the show they actually had the re-issue of that album (1985) "All Over Again" (same tracks from 1959 & 60), then they danced to Jimmy's beautiful "Evening In Paradise".

'Jimmy' also had a part in the movie "Stormy Weather ~ The Life of Harold Arlen" (2003), where he sang two of Arlen's songs "I Had A Love Once" and "Over The Rainbow". The film had much to do with Arlen's deep love of his beautiful wife Ana and the stormy relationship it was. It was filmed on location in Canada.

LOL, LOL, MIXEY!!!
 
M.M.,
Jimmy was in the last episode. See the video M I X E Y put up. Smile
David Lynch talks about why he wanted Jimmy for Twin Peaks "Fire Walk With Me" episode, in the Bravo Profiles Documentary about Jimmy.

ZIP BAN DELETE!!!
 
WBG deleted the ability to watch the YouTube Twin Peaks Sycamore Trees video, with Jimmy singing, that I posted in this thread.
 
I was sitting with my son Travis tonight, and we were having a blast, listening to music and watching videos.
 
I couldn't wait to show him Jimmy singing Sycamore trees for the Twin Peaks show.  He loves Jimmy's singing and totally gets it... but oh no... the video has been removed!!!!!!!!!!!
 
I could only find a very small segment, that cuts Jimmy's part considerably, and isn't enough to set the scene.
 
They're obviously trying to sell the Twin Peaks series on DVDs.
Don't these idiots know that when you give people a little, they're more willing to want to buy the lot???
 
Really burned up!

SS,
 
You say Jimmy was in the "last episode" of Twin Peaks? You mean the very final one? Sounds that way, but I'm wondering because I have the DVD set of the first season of Twin Peaks.

Hi Jeff,
That's cool.
 
Jimmy is in episode # 29, "Beyond Life And Death" where he is the "Black Lodge Performer" looking ghostly singing "Sycamore Trees".  It was filmed in 1991.
 
The CD is  Twin Peaks "Fire Walk With Me".
