Going from Movies to Music

Joaquin Phoenix, the star of the Johhny Cash film Walk The Line just announced that he’s leaving the movie business and going into music full-time.  Sounds like a bad idea to me. Russell Crowe, Keifer Sutherland, Keanu Reeves, Billy Bob Thorton, and others have tried this and failed spectucularly.

However, i also know that Jason Schwartzman (Max in Rushmore) has been in 2 successful bands (Phantom Planet and now Coconut Records).  Are there any others that have gone from movies to music that i’m missing?

Play this Coconut Records song – it’s one of my favorites (West Coast).
