Although they bring as endlessly catchy tunes and often some pretty slick dance moves, too, boy bands still occasionally come under fire for being contrived and talentless. However, many of the most talented members have skills not only in the vocal department but on the big (and small) screen, too.

Some of everyone’s favorite actors today actually got started in a boy band (Justin Timberlake and Mark Wahlberg, I’m looking at you) and America is more than willing to buy tickets to a concert tour or a movie theater… or both! Although some of these former and current singers are bigger — and, I’ll say it, better — actors than others, each of these pop crooners have more than one reason to call themselves a star.
