Great. We've got another actor who thinks he can sing on our hands.

At least Jim Carrey's sticking to karaoke bars for his awkward warbling of Radiohead's "Creep" and Smashing Pumpkins' "Bullet With Butterfly Wings", instead of taking the Gwyneth Paltrow route of bringing awkward warbling to films, television, and awards shows. And while we're enjoying Carrey's zany antics/possible public meltdown, we're hoping he sticks to the karaoke stage, instead of trying to compete with these actors who can actually sing.

8. Jordan Catalano Jared Leto parlayed his career-making role on My So-Called Life into a music career with 30 Seconds to Mars. He still acts occasionally, and (even more occasionally) makes videos as Kurt Cobain.

7. In the midst of his drug-addled prison phase, Robert Downey, Jr. waged a career comeback on Ally McBeal, where he revealed some heartfelt singing skills. He's since recorded a few albums.
