The Most Talented Actor-Singers Out There

4/19/2015 1:00pm EDT
12 Of The Most Successful Actor-Musician Combos
They say that actors want to be musicians and that musicians want to be actors. For some who attempt to be the ‘double threat,’ they fail miserably. Only a select few have managed to find the balance or minimally success in both fields. How is such success measured? There are a number of indicators but for the 12 artists that make this list, most of the indicators of success lie in accolades with the crème de la crème being an Academy Award or a Grammy.

1) Jamie Foxx

15 ‘Drunken’ Songs: Music Written With A Lack Of Sobriety In Min
If a poll were taken, likely the majority of folks would state they enjoy an alcoholic beverage. If that poll were to focus merely on college students, the majority would be even larger. But this isn’t about how much alcohol is consumed, but rather about the songs that have been written with drunkenness, drinking, and a lack of sobriety in mind. Here are 15 Drunken Songs. Most are about substances, but a few play exception.

1) Kendrick Lamar, “Swimming Pools (Drank)” (good kid m.A.A.d. City, 2012)

If one gets nothing else from Kendrick Lamar’s hit “Swimming Pools (Drank),” you kno...

Jesse McCartney On New Animated Film 'Wings,' Upcoming Album
Lionsgate's new animated movie Wings features Jesse McCartney lending his voice to the cartoon plane Cyclone, one of multiple new happenings for the actor and singer. BFTV recently caught up with Jesse to ask him about his part in Wings and progress on his new album, which is expected this spring.

"I got a call from [producers] Simka Entertainment, and heard it was an animated movie for kids, which I enjoy doing, so I jumped onboard," he explained. "One of my buddies from All My Children was doing it also, so I thought it might be fun."

The Wings voice cast also includes Josh Duhamel as ...

Trailer Talk: This Week in Movies
Sadly, I haven’t caught last week’s pick yet: “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.” However I did have the misfortune of watching the David Gordon Green comedy “The Sitter,” which turned out to be a complete dud. If you haven’t already read my review, give it a look to find out why I think Jonah Hill deserves better.

Arriving in theaters this week are the Guy Ritchie sequel “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows,” the Roman Polanski parental dramedy “Carnage,” the third Chipmunks adventure “Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chip-Wrecked,” and the Roger Corman themed documentary “Corman’s World: Exploits of a...

Tribeca: 'The Trotsky' & 'Beware The Gonzo' – A Tale of Two Heroes

5/3/2010 1:13pm EDT
The Trotsky
As the 2010 Tribeca Film Festival draws to a close, I’m inclined to believe that this year saw an influx of young protagonists gracing the big screens across New York, delighting and riveting audiences alike of all ages. In an earlier episode, I mentioned Dog Pound, a film about juvenile delinquents trying to survive in a youth detention facility. Since then the young heroes I’ve encountered have been much better (if not always positive) role models.

The Trotsky is a film that you can still find on demand, and a film that recommend to anyone who’s a fan of the 80’s Brat Pack era. It’s the ...

Today's Child Stars Struggle To Become Serious Entertainers

7/2/2008 9:01am EDT
Cole and Dylan Sprouse
We saw it with Drew Barrymore and then again years later with Lindsay Lohan and most recently with Mary-Kate Olsen. Current "It" stars like the Jonas Brothers and Miley Cyrus will undoubtedly follow suit in the next few years.

They are child stars that want to turn into more serious entertainers as they get older, hoping the fans that are also growing up will follow them into more adult ventures. They take on roles they perceive as "serious" or "artsy," they change their look to try to separate themselves from their younger image, and they often take behind-the-scenes hybrid titles...

Imagine driving across the country with nothing but the great open road in your future. Going through barely-there towns and the desert, the road is full of possibilities (as well as seedy hotels and exorbitant gas prices). What makes the drive go by quicker? Music.

The Jonas Brothers
The highly anticipated follow-up to the New Jersey siblings' 2006 debut—which featured the TRL hit "Mandy"—The Jonas Brothers is sure to make good on the band's goal: It's a high-energy pop-punk disc overflowing with insanely catchy hooks, muscular guitar fuzz and mature songwriting that reveals just how much growing up the boys have done since we last heard from them.

Ask the Jonas Brothers who they're hoping to turn into fans with their new self-titled CD and they won't say "everybody." But that's precisely what they'll mean. "We're aiming for people our age," says 17-year-old Joe. ...
