So, a friend and I were talking about singers that have tried to start acting careers, and we’ve come accross a few (Madona, Bette Midler, Allyia [forgive the horrible misspelling]), but then we started talking about actors who have tried to start music careers, and the list is full of a lot less successful people. Here’s a few we came up with:
Russel Crow: Don’t know the name of his band, but he plays guitar and sings occassionally.
Keanu Reeves: Plays bass for Dogstar
Bruce Willis: He’s got some band no one’s heard of
Allyissa Milano: Had a pop carreer in Japan (Oooo!!)
Adam Sandler: Although I consider his music more an branch of his comedy, my friend says “He’s still a musician,” and I really can’t argue.
Jack Black: Same as above. Started as a comedian, his music is really part of his comedy, and then became an actor, but more famous for the prior before the latter, so there you go.
And that’s all I can think of for now. Anyone got any more names (and any that seem to have been successful?)?
