Music and movies have a lot in common, but it’s not as easy as you might think to shift from one to the other. A few folks have managed it, however, so here are our Top 3 Male Singers Who Successfully Changed Their Career To Acting.
At number three, it’s Ludacris. After building a reputation as a rapper in the 90s, Luda, real name Cris Bridges, has become much more famous for his acting work, particularly in the uber-popular ‘Fast & Furious’ franchise.
On the second place we find Mark Wahlberg. Mark followed his older brother Donny into the singing biz, going platinum under the name Marky Mark, but once he turned his attention to acting, he really excelled, and has even been nominated for multiple Oscars.
And our top spot goes to Will Smith. The multi-talented Will launched his successful music career back when he was still a teenager, then started acting on the famous sitcom ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’, before conquering the big screen as well and becoming one of the world’s biggest stars.
