Does this count people like Jennifer Lopez or Janet Jackson who acted first and then had successful music careers, or emphasizing on the "movie star has a hit song" gimmick that doesn't translate to a real music career (like Eddie Murphy, Bruce Willis, Nicole Kidman, etc...)

I was listening to the Fifty Shades Freed soundtrack when I noticed Jamie Dornan had a song on it. And that was the impetus to create both the Fifty Shades soundtracks survivor and this one. I have already drawn up a list of songs that will be used, but thought I would throw this out for nominations, since you may think of someone I hadn't considered.

I will leave this up for nominations for two days. Since this is primarily about the actor, I am going to say that you must nominate acts who are more known for acting than singing, not a singer who decided "oh, I'll dabble" like Madge or Mimi. :D
I know there are borderline artists who have found success in both fields, but use your best judgment.

I'll start off with the folks referenced in the opening image:

30 Seconds to Mars - Kings and Queen
Dwayne Johnson - You're Welcome
Paul Oakenfold ft. Brittany Murphy - Faster Kill Pussycat
Eddie Murphy - Party All the Time
Tisha Campbell Martin - Lazy Bitch (This Ain't Gina)
Lindsey Lohan - Bossy

leaving more on people famous for acting who "dabbled" in music

Don Johnson - Heartbeat
Bruce Willis - Respect Yourself
Jeff Bridges - What A Little Bit Of Love Can Do
Lisa Whelchel - Good Girl (Blair from The Facts Of Life)
Vicki Lawrence - The Night The Lights Went Out In Georgia (star of Mama's Family who had a US #1 hit in the 70s when she was on The Carol Burnett Show)

Hmm, I didn't think of Janet, but I'd say no to her since her singing career far outstrips the acting career. She's more known as a singer.

J. Lo - let me think about that one - she's balanced both careers pretty well

hmm, the Marky Mark one thing and Will Smith are two I wondered about. Both had rap careers before focusing on movies and became much bigger stars.

I know Paris Hilton is pushing it but she had a porno, a TV show and one or two major movie roles before releasing that song. :lol:

David Duchovny - Stars
James Marsters - Bad
Coconut Records - West Coast (Jason Schwartzman)
Julie Delpy - A Waltz For A Night
She & Him - In The Sun (only 50% actor, for Zooey Deschanel, but hoping it counts)
Also curious about Jenny Lewis - she's more known for music now, but was an actor first...?
