Taking a Break with Tunde Adebimpe

5 March 2009 8:40 AM, PST | | See recent IFC news »

Tunde Adebimpe may be best known for fronting the beloved Brooklyn band TV on the Radio, but he's a man of multiple talents. Schooled as a visual artist, he worked as an animator after graduating from Tisch. His first acting role was in a classmate's short, "Jorge" (1998), which became a feature, "Jump Tomorrow" (2001), all years before he ever cut a record. In his latest foray onto the big screen, Adebimpe played the groom, Sidney, in Jonathan Demme's "Rachel Getting Married." In a film filled with exceptional, sometime showy ensemble performances, Adebimpe still had a few opportunities to shine -- it's Sidney's geeky charm during the dishwasher scene that makes its consequence heartbreaking, instead of just cheaply macabre. And one of the most beautiful moments in the film, and arguably the best "I do" in any wedding scene ever shot, is Sidney's winsome serenade to Rachel during the otherwise tense ceremony. »
