Here's my list of my favorite actors that decided to give music a try:
5: Jack Black, (Tenacious D) - This band is a bit of a joke, but is still good enough to make this list (that, or everything else was just that shitty). Jack black has appeared in Kung Fu Panda, School of Rock, and King Kong.

4: Jared Leto, (30 Seconds to Mars) - While they are probably the most popular and legitimate band on this list, they are not as good as the rest of this list (but are still pretty good). Jared Leto has appeared in Requiem for a Dream, Lord of War, and Fight Club.

3: Ryan Gosling, (Dead Man's Bones) - "Pa Pa Power" single-handedly catapults Ryan Gosling and his band mate Zach Shields to #3 on the list. He has appeared in The Notebook, Drive, and Blue Valentine.

1: Donald Glover, (Childish Gambino) - Childish Gambino was my inspiration to write this post and is, by far, my favorite artist on this list. Glover recently released a rap album, "Camp," which stands up to and surpasses all current rap albums. His clever lines include: "you're my favorite rapper now / yeah dude I better be / or you can fuckin' kiss my ass, Human Centipede" and "the shit I'm doing this year, insanity / made the beat then murdered it... Casey Anthony." Donald Glover's acting appearances include The Muppets, Mystery Team, and the TV series, Community.
