Musician Goes Actor -or- Actor Goes Musician

Standard

I recently was having a conversation with a good friend of mine who has acted in many popular television sitcoms, soap operas, and films.  Many of his fans are, however, unaware that he is an extremely talented musician. There is a strange stigma in Hollywood that embraces musicians, like Rihanna, transition to the “big screen,” but people get a sour attitude when on-screen actors try to break into the music circuit. I totally think we as a society shouldn’t put such a negative stigma against actors wanting to dive into music.

My list of Singers Turned Actors are below, but I’m curious to see how many Actors Turned Singers you all can think of….

-Mariah Carey, Madonna, Michael Jackson, Will Smith, Aaliyah, Jennifer Hudson, Frank Sinatra, Justin Timberlake, Queen Latifah, Mandy Moore, Ludacris, Snoop Dogg (aka Snoop Lion), Beyonce, Rihanna, Beyonce, LL Cool J, Ice Cube, Eminem, P Diddy…among many others

So go ahead and comment away – What actors broke into the music world successfully?
