HOW SUCCESSFUL ARE THEY AS DIRECTORS AND ACTORS?

In real life, the director is often the hero of the film as he is the one who brings it to life. But the actors walk away with the lion’s share of praise as they become the face of the film. A few directors have turned the tables on actors by donning the greasepaint and daring to play ball on their court by taking over in front of the camera. This experiment has had mixed results with some suggesting that a director should stick to what he does best whereas others have been more appreciative.

Let us take a look at popular directors turned actors and see how they have fared.
