Rock Stars Who Act: Jack White, Henry Rollins, Bob Dylan + More

It’s not uncommon to find actors who have turned into rock stars. Turn on your TV and you’ll probably run across She & Him‘s Zooey Deschanel on ‘New Girl.’ Head out to rent a movie and you just might decide to pick up ‘Requiem for a Dream,’ starring 30 Seconds to Mars‘ Jared Leto. Johnny Depp, Keifer Sutherland, Kevin Bacon, Bruce Willis … they’re all actors who rock.

But how often do rock stars turn the tables and decide to act? It actually happens much more frequently than you might think.

From Jack White‘s portrayal of a mandolin player in ‘Cold Mountain’ to Henry Rollins‘ terrifying white supremacist character in the second season of ‘Sons of Anarchy’ — and even Dave Grohl as the Devil in Tenacious D‘s ‘The Pick of Destiny’ — click through the gallery above to check out some our favorite Rock Stars Who Act!
