Video: Jon Spencer Blues Explosion Talk About The Blues Video Clip
Take 3 great actors (Giovanni Ribisi, John C. Reilly & Winona Ryder) and cast them as look-a-likes in a music clip for the frenetic Jon Spencer Blues Explosion. Result = pure genius! Sometimes I can’t tell the difference between the actors and JSBX!
- Giovanni Ribisi (Saving Private Ryan, Avatar, Friends) = Judah Bauer
- John C. Reilly (Wreck-It Ralph, Step Brothers, Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby) = Russell Simins
- Winona Ryder + 5 o’clock shadow (Heathers, Edward Scissorhands, Reality Bites) = Jon Spencer
I’m sure Judah even lent out his trusty brown leather jacket to Giovanni for authenticity. And is that Russell’s tiny drum kit that John’s pounding?
The tables are turned and Jon, Judah and Russell play as extremely bad actors in their own video clip.

BTW, did I forget to tell you – the blues is number one! Yeah!
