    Mastering the art of transitioning from actor to musician takes a certain image switcheroo, a relatively underground project, and maybe the help of the Disney Channel. (Seriously, the Disney kids seem the most adept at finding their footing in both the music and acting industries.)

Leighton Meester's folk career really should have taken off, and Jena Malone's band is still too under-the-radar to really say. But, these actresses have tried (and/or still are trying), and that's what really counts, eh? If anything, it's a check off on the good ol' bucket list. There ain't nothin' embarrassing about that.
