When actors also try to have musical careers it is supposed to be funny. See Keanu Reeves in Dogstar or Joey Lawrence doing pretty much anything. Imagine my surprise when Rock Band informed me that Jared Leto was the lead singer of a rock band. But like a real rock band, a legitimate, award-winning, recognizable songs, rock band. Not only is he the singer but he also plays guitar and writes most of their songs. I was blown away.
I'm guessing I didn't know this earlier because he hasn't done anything that I've remotely wanted to see since My So Called Life. I still feel like I should have known this.
