(Newser) – What's better than being a famous actor? Being a famous actor and a semi-famous singer. Celebuzz rounds up 10 actors who've also been in a band:

  • Abigail Breslin: She's just 16, but the Little Miss Sunshine actress is already a multi-hyphenate. Her first song is "Westfjords" with indie group Stargroves.
  • Ryan Gosling: When he performs with his group, Dead Man's Bones, he goes by "Baby Goose." Get it?

  • Hugh Laurie: The House star is the frontman for Band From TV, which is exactly what it sounds like: a charity cover band "supergroup" of sorts that also features Heroes star Greg Grunberg.
  • Jada Pinkett Smith: Who says Scientologists can't be into heavy metal? Yep, Jada—as Jada Koren—fronts metal band Wicked Wisdom.
Click for the complete list, which includes one overachiever who's in not one but two bands.
