Some actors should only sing in the shower

Jeff Bridges has a new album. And no, it’s not what you’re thinking. Remember, this is the man who convincingly and Oscar-winningly played a country musician in “Crazy Heart.”

More evidence: the self-titled release arrives in stores thanks to respected Blue Note records, it’s produced by the impeccably tasteful T Bone Burnett and features appearances by singer-songwriter credibility machines Roseanne Cash and Sam Phillips. So get those William Shatner thoughts out of your head. Bridges will still probably always be more known for his acting, but this isn’t a joke.

Of course, the same cannot be said for every actor turned singer (or vice versa). Let's take a look.

Jennifer Lopez
Uses both acting and singing muscles with equal aggression, but chooses fewer hit film roles than hit singles. “Selena,” and her best film, Steven Soderbergh’s “Out of Sight,” are notable exceptions, but have you seen “The Back Up Plan” or “Gigli?” Stick To: Singing and being a surrogate mama to “American Idol” kids.

As we learn in the end, the toe doesn't belong to Bunny Lebowski, but toes in general are a theme of the movie. In one scene, Bunny flirts with The Dude by asking him to blow on her toenail polish, and in another, Walter almost kills a fellow bowler for letting his toe slip over the foul line.

    Exclusive club -

    Who's the leader of one of the greatest clubs in the world? Hard to tell, but "Mickey Mouse Club's" classes of 1989-94 spawned some of the biggest future names in music and acting, including Britney Spears (blue vest), Christina Aguilera (next to Britney), Keri Russell (front of Christina), J.C. Chasez (left front), Timberlake (behind J.C.) and Ryan Gosling (second from top right).

Jamie Foxx
He’s a comic. He’s an actor. He’s a singer. He’s a talk radio host. He has an Academy Award. He’s had a number one album. You know who else has accomplished that? Frank Sinatra, Barbra Streisand and Bing Crosby. And that’s it. And even they never had talk shows. So if you have something to say about this, make sure you mention that fact. Stick To: Whatever he wants.
