Gallery:  20 musicians moonlighting as actors

You think Jared Leto is a lousy rock star? Try watching one of David Bowie’s movies.

For every actor who decides to moonlight as a musician there is an equally bored and deluded lead singer who thinks he deserves an Oscar. Sometimes we’re pleasantly surprised — hey, who didn’t love Gwen Stefani in “The Aviator”? But more often than not we’re cringing in our seats before the opening credits are over.

Above is a gallery of the good, bad and ugly cinematic endeavors of our favorite rockers.

Bummed we missed Ice Cube in “Anaconda”? Meat Loaf in “Fight Club”? J. Lo in, well, just about everything?
