While we know the celebrities on this list for their roles in some of our favorite television shows and movies, you may not know that they also sing in bands! While it may seem like a fun side project for some of them, some of them have even quit their acting jobs to pursue their musical careers. That is some hardcore stuff right there, but it may have been a bad choice on their part because we have not heard of any of their music since they quit. Check out the list of celebrities that have been members of bands throughout their careers!

Jack Black

The comedic actor has become more and more popular in Hollywood, but he is also a member of the rock comedy group Tenacious D. These two are hilarious and their songs are inappropriately brilliant!

Zooey Deschanel

We all love Zooey Deschanel on New Girl, but she also has some singing chops on her. She plays the piano and the ukulele for the band She & Him.


Billy Bob Thornton

Billy Bob Thornton does not mess around, as he is currently a member of The Boxmasters, where he sings and plays guitar. He has also been a member of the band Tres Hombres and has released three solo albums.

Ryan Gosling

Ryan Gosling was blowing up and you could find him on every magazine cover and in all the big movies, but he has quieted down over the past couple years. Maybe he is busy in his band, Dead Man’s Bones, where he provides vocals and plays piano, guitar, bass guitar, and cello.
