    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.
    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

    I am not trying to seduce you... Would you like me to seduce you? Is that what you're trying to tell me?

    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.

    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...?
