From Small Screen to Singer: When TV Stars Double as Musicians

by Spinner Editors, posted Nov 24th 2011 2:00PM
From Spinner: We love a good crossover, especially when our favorite TV stars pick up a microphone and belt out some tunes.



The good folks over at Spinner have compiled a bunch of videos of TV celebs from Joey Lawrence to Zooey Deschanel as they showcase their vocal chops. Though a number of singers have moved from music to television, this list features stars who made it big on the small screen before picking up a microphone, to varying degrees of success.

Shatner vs. Takei! - VIDEO

by Bob Sassone, posted Oct 22nd 2008 5:44PM
William ShatnerHave you been keeping track of The Shatner Project? It's a series of videos that Boston Legal star William Shatner has been doing with his daughter Liz. In one he talked about not being in the new Star Trek flick, and in the latest he goes off on being hated by former costar George Takei.

I'm not an expert on psychology, but when the guy uses words to describe Takei such as "sad," "a poor man," that he has a "sickness" and a "psychosis," and that he should "shut up," I'm going to assume that they're not on each other's AIM buddy list.

Takei has had a problem with Shatner since the early Trek days (something to do with Shatner's ego and wanting close-ups and not giving other stars more screen time), and most recently Takei didn't invite Shatner to his wedding to Brad (even though he did invite Leonard Nimoy, Nichelle Nichols, and Walter Koenig). Shatner feels sorry for the decades-long feud and doesn't understand it, but he's really snarky about it.

There should be a Celebrity Deathmatch between these two, or at the very least get them in the same house on a celebrity Big Brother.

Is Heroes doing too much, too soon?

I was thinking about this the other day. Even though I named Heroes as the best show of the year, I've been worried lately that season two might turn out to be an over-hyped, overdone disaster that will make me tire of it really quickly. I mean, they're adding cast members at an astonishing rate (Kristin Bell, Nichelle Nichols, David Anders, Stephen Tobolowsky, Janel Parrish, Jessica Collins). They're going to have a storyline in another time (Hiro), produced a spinoff mini-series to be directed by Kevin Smith, produced online stories and comics to keep fans entertained and well-fed and gone on a world tour to promote the show. It's really overwhelming, and I hope they're not doing too much, too soon.

The Boston Globe's Matthew Gilbert is worried too.

Star Trek's Uhura joins Heroes

Nichelle NicholsTo boldly go where other Star Trek actors have gone before: Heroes! A few days ago, TrekMovie.com revealed that Nichelle Nichols, who played Uhura in the original Star Trek series, was cast in a recurring role on NBC's hit show Heroes. The actress joins George Takei, Sulu from the original Trek, and Dominic Keating, Malcolm Reed from Enterprise, who are already on Heroes' pay roll (Keating was cast in a recurring role earlier this summer). To add to the Star Trek-Heroes links, Zachary Quinto, who plays Sylar, was cast as Spock in the upcoming movie. Slight spoilers after the jump!

The Five: 40 years of Star Trek babes

by Brett Love, posted Sep 8th 2006 6:01PM
Yeoman Tamua - Miko Mayama with Captain KirkWhen I first considered doing 'The Five' for the women of Star Trek it seemed simple enough. After giving that some thought though, I realized it's just not possible. Over the hundreds of hours of television and movies that comprise the Trek universe, there have just been way too many beautiful women to boil it all down to just five. I mean, just in the original series you have the likes of Yeoman Tamura (Miko Mayama - pictured), Lt. Landon (Celeste Yarnall), T'Pring (Arlene Martel), Mea Three (Barbara Babcock), Drusilla (Lois Jewell), and Andrea (Sherry Jackson). And that's just to start. So, while I have chosen five of my favorites after the jump, I realize that there are easily another fifty that could make the list. Feel free to add your favorites in the comments. I'm curious to see what the TV Squad faithful think.
