5 Actor/Singers That Don't Suck


People are quick to criticize actors who try to crossover into the music industry and vice versa but instead of focusing on the negative here are my picks for five actor/singers who actually delight audiences when they showcase their various talents.

5. Mandy Moore - She's not the most stellar actress or singer but when she did A Walk to Remember all the stars seemed to align for a nice blend of both sets of her artistic skills. She shed her "Candy" pop music style for a more subtle sound with her album Wild Hope and in films like Dedication she gracefully submerges into quirky roles.

4. Emmy Rossum - If you're a fan of Imogen Heap and Frou Frou then Emmy Rossum's music might be for you. She was nominated for a Golden Globe and an Independent Spirit Award plus she just had a film at Sundance. She has the potential to be a great actress and I could totally see her starring on Broadway.

3. Will Smith - Okay, so he's not a singer but who doesn't know the theme song to the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. He scores big at the box office and he's able to flex his dramatic chops in films like Seven Pounds.

2. Zooey Deschanel - Paste magazine named She & Him's Volume One as the 2008 album of the year. She's gained loads of "street cred" in both the music and film independent scenes and a continuous yellow brick road to further success seems quite likely.

1. Jennifer Hudson - She's only at the beginning of her career and she already has an Oscar and a Grammy for her mantle. Enough said.

Honorable Mentions: Hugh Jackman & Anne Hathaway - They don't have albums but they did a nice job on their duet at the Academy Awards.

I'll have to respectfully disagree with you on most of this list.

I love Zooey, she's so unusual, but I haven't heard her music--so I'll reserved judgement.

Emmy is a classically trained vocalist, I believe opera and that came first before acting. She's is definitely talented in both departments.

Jennifer can definitely sing and has potential in the acting arena (but she seems very boxed into those sassy bbf/mammy-like roles)and needs to study the craft.

Mandy and Will are bubble gum safe pop stars. Neither are exceptional on either side of the fence. Will hasn't been compelling since Six Degrees of Separation. I don't listen to either of their music.

Hmm ... now other examples of musicians who are also very talented actors ...

1.Harry Connick Jr.
2.Mos Def
3.Jamie Foxx
4.Henry Rollins
5.Gina Gershon
6.Rene Goldsberry
7.Sting


I'll have to think on who else fit the bill.

I thought about Mos Def but I'm not really into rap. I can't even name one of his songs but I heard it's not like the dreadful mainstream rap that invades the airwaves. He's a decent actor though. Maybe I should have named this post 5 actor/singers that I like. There are more than five good ones but these stand-out the most to me.
