Hotties of the Week: Musicians Turned Actors

By  | 

What’s hotter than a guy that is musically talented? A guy that can kill it on stage and on the big screen. Yes, you can have both. Justin Timberlake proves it! Especially with his newest flick In Time (Which we already got to see — and it’s worth your time!). That’s why we compiled a list of our favorite musician-turned-actor hotties. We don’t even care if they’re not the most amazing actors in the universe (:cough: JonasBrothers :cough:). As long as they’re delicious eye candy, we’ll go with it!

And here are the top 10!

While Justin Timberlake‘s claim to fame is N*Sync, his roles in The Social Network and Bad Teacher were stellar performances. Plus, he’s super hot. Want more big screen JT action? His new movie, In Time (with Amanda Seyfried!!) hits theaters October 28th!

Lil Romeo took a break from rapping about his Bugs Bunny chain and matching watch to play Benny in Honey with Jessica Alba. Not bad for a 14-year-old at the time.

The Jonas Brothers aren’t the best actors in the world, but actors nonetheless. Their repertoire includes Camp Rock, Jonas, and Hannah Montana. Joe was even in an episode of 90210, and Nick appeared in an episode of Mr. Sunshine with Matthew Perry.

Before he played young JR Chandler in All My Children and before he was sexy Bradin Westerly on Summerland, Jesse McCartney used to sing and dance for a kids band called Sugar Beats. Google it. You’ll LOL. He later grew up (and got hot) and joined Dream Street. Swoon. JMac’s other acting gigs include Greek, Law & Order: SVU, and Keith.


Chris Brown is so talented, we can barely stand it. He can sing, he can dance, oh yeah and he can act. He’s been in three episodes of The O.C. (bet you never knew that!), Stomp The Yard, This Christmas (we watch every year now), and Takers.

We’re starting to think Bow Wow likes acting more than making music. He’s been in Moesha, Like Mike, The Fast and The Furious: Tokyo Drift, Smallville, Entourage, Lottery Ticket, Madea’s Big Happy Family, and The Secret Life of the American Teenager. Whew!

Yes, Usher had a life before Justin Bieber. And a pretty good acting career, too! He lit up the big screen in Killers, She’s All That, and In The Mix. He was also on Moesha, 7th Heaven, and Sabrina, The Teenage Witch.

Apparently Justin Bieber can do it all. But you guys knew that already. You caught him on CSI, right? Thought so.

It’s not hard to believe our fave gleek (yea, we said it — fave!), Darren Criss, had musical chops before he started acting. He is the co-owner of StarKid Productions and has written a ton of songs for the company.


Greyson Chance made his TV debut on an episode of Raising Hope playing a younger version of Jimmy Chance. Chance? Obviously Greyson was made for this role. But we all know where GC’s roots began.
