10 Actors Who Are Talented Musicians
We love to gush over Hollywood A-listers and walking alongside them as their red carpet companions, there’s only one thing we love to drool over more and that’s musicians who know how to rock it on stage and perform to a sold out show. But when these two things collide, they make for a megastar who is impossibly desirable! What could be better than a hunky man who can throw down a hot track or perhaps a beautiful woman with pipes that soothe your soul? This list checks out those rare few that really can do it all when it comes to entertaining a crowd! Here are 10 actors who are also great musicians:
10. Mark Wahlberg
Mark Wahlberg got his start as the pseudo-rapper and front man of Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch back in 1991. After appearing on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine, Wahlberg posed for one of the most famous Calvin Klein ads of all time! He made the move to the big screen in Boogie Nights and eventually earned recognition with performances in The Departed and The Fighter, a film that earned an Academy Award for Best Picture. It seems like Mark’s rapping days are over but Deepwater Horizon is set to release in 2016.
9. Johnny Depp
Who doesn’t love Johnny Depp? He’s a mega babe and is regarded as one of the world’s biggest film stars. In addition to his countless films including Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and Pirates of the Caribbean, Johnny Depp is also a skilled musician and has combined his acting and singing chops on screen in Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. Depp has also played slide guitar on the Oasis song “Fade In-Out” and acoustic guitar in the film Chocolat and on the soundtrack to Once Upon a Time in Mexico. Depp’s musical cameos and side appearances are countless, but in 2015 he formed a supergroup with Alice Cooper and Joe Perry called Hollywood Vampires. They released a self-titled album featuring eleven classic rock covers and two new songs.
