We know many musicians who have made the move from the radio to the screen. Some have been successful and some have been Britney Spears.

(Don't pretend that watching Crossroads isn't on your list of regrets.)

But there are more than a few actors out there who possess vocal talents greater than or equal to their ability to bring characters to life via carefully scripted screenplays. 

Here are 15 actors who are surprisingly good singers ...

Hayden Panettiere
Hayden Panettiere is a tiny powerhouse of talent. She performs her own songs on hit show Nashville, where she portrays a country music artist.

You might not know it by looking at them, but these actors have often parlayed their singing talents into acting gigs. In some cases, they've abandoned the acting world altogether for music.

Don Jon, the first feature from Joseph Gordon-Levitt, is not like most films, but that helps make the actor's debut behind the camera all the more charming.

Gordon-Levitt directed, wrote and stars as a Jersey lothario, a regular, old-school, how-YOU-doin' guy who happens to be a hardcore porn addict.

Yes, he's a man dedicated to family, friends, and church, yet develops unrealistic expectations from porn and works to find intimacy with a true love interest.

Can he and Barbara (Scarlett Johansson) live happily ever after? And does this romantic comedy (of sorts) flourish despite of (or because of) its unusual premise?

Let's see what the Don Jon reviews are saying ...

"While addiction may make Jon sound like a bummer, as played with great swagger and subterranean wit by the movie’s writer and director, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, this improbable charmer conveys convincingly triumphant braggadocio." - The New York Times

Tony Danza just can't contain himself in the first clip from Don Jon.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays Jon Martello, Jr. in the new comedy, which he also wrote and directed.

Jon has an insatiable porn addiction, but when he meets two special ladies, he begins to rethink the way he lives his life.

Scarlett Johansson was been linked to yet another guy.

This time her rumored love interest is actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt, star of one of the fall's most memorable films (see some of the best 50/50 quotes).

"They were kissing," an eyewitness says of the couple's recent NYC run-in. "They were very lovey." It wasn't the first time either, we're hearing ...

Scarlett Johansson, 26, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, 30, hit the town together at Hundred Acres in NYC's SoHo area in late July. Clearly they're close.

A source says they have "discussing a project for a while [but] have never kissed," another insider explains that it started out that way, however:

"They first met about a film, but it's gone beyond that now."

A Johansson pal insists there's "nothing serious" going on between the stars ... yet. She's also been linked to Kieran Culkin within the last month.
