Yesterday, William Shatner turned 79. Now, though many know him as a sci-fi icon, a 80s action star, and smart ass old lawyer…he is actually a trailblazer for something bigger and greater. Shatner was one of the first actors turned pop star. At first it was a novelty for fellow actors of his generation like Telly Savalas and crew member, Leonard Nimoy. But as we went through the 80s into the 90s, it started to become more respectable with Bruce Willis and Eddie Murphy scoring big hits…and Keenu Reeves’ Dogstar and Johnny Depp’s P getting some indie street cred. But now this decade, actor-turned-pop stars aren’t just blip on the sonic radar, they are now full-fledged rock icons. With Jenny Lewis’ Rilo Kiley, Scarlett Johansson & Pete Yorn, Jason Schwartzman’s Phantom Planet, and Zooey Deschanel’s She & Him…becoming a rock star may not be as easy as knowing how to string a bass…you may need some acting chops, too.
