William Shatner is in the “Actor Turned Bad Singer” Hall of Fame
Scratch the surface of any actor and underneath you will find a frustrated singer dying to burst out and start belting a tune. Sadly most of these thespians don’t realize that they have little to no musical talent which usually results in auditory disasters like the unfortunate musical stylings of the 5 actors turned singers on this list.

I had been anxiously waiting for the second season of THE WALKING DEAD to begin since the moment the (too short) first season ended and in the first 16 or so minutes of the Second Season Premiere I was rewarded with a textbook example of how to make a suspenseful zombie apocalypse experience. The panic that came over the crew of survivors when they realized too late that they had stumbled into an oncoming herd of shuffling flesh-eating zombies was great and the tension as each character scrambled for a sufficient hiding place was palpable. Andrea being trapped and unarmed in the RV’s bathroom, Sophie being chased into the woods by two zombies, and Rick’s daring rescue were all edge of your seat moments.
