Six Underrated Steve Martin Film Performances

Renaissance man Steve Martin will take the stage at the Meyerson Symphony Center tonight, but he won't just be wielding a microphone. The funny man also happens to be an author, playwright, songwriter and Grammy-award winning banjo player, who has not one but two #1 bluegrass albums (The Crow and Rare Bird Alert, both with The Steep Canyon Rangers) under his belt -- aside from his gold, platinum and double platinum comedy albums, of course.

Tonight's show is about bluegrass, yes, but rather than treading upon the musical territory of DC9, we're talking Martin from a different angle.

In honor of the wildest and craziest guy of them all, we take a look back at a few of Steve-a-rino's more underrated performances. Check them out after the jump.
