12 Actors Who Used Their Fame To Start Music Careers

- Page 1

Back in the days of old Hollywood, it wasn't uncommon to encounter actors who could be considered a "triple-threat;" they could act, dance, AND sing. As the years went on, these kinds of actors became increasingly rare, but there have still been a few that have also tried their hands at a music career. These 12 all released albums, with varying levels of success.

Cesar Romero

Best-known for his portrayal of The Joker alongside Adam West's Batman, Romero actually released an album in 1958 called Songs From A Latino Lover, a tongue-in-cheek reference to his most common roles at the time.

Billy Bob Thornton

That's right, turns out the star of Bad Santa is also an accomplished musician! He even wrote a song back in 2001 about his ex-girlfriend, Angelina Jolie.

Clint Eastwood

In a move that I'm sure surprised absolutely nobody, the world's greatest movie cowboy released an album during his Rawhide days called Clint Eastwood Sings Cowboy Favorites. The biggest surprise is probably that it's actually pretty good!

Steven Seagal

Yes, one of the most mediocre action stars of all time actively tours with his mediocre music, which he describes as “outsider country meets world music meets aikido.” Are we even surprised?

Don Johnson

Don Johnson was a big deal in the 80s thanks to his leading role on Miami Vice, so it's no surprise that he tried his hand at singing as well. The song "Heartbeat" actually hit the Billboard Top 10.

Some of these albums just get crazier from here...
