Of course, New Jersey already boasts an amazing lineup of musical stars that include legendary names like Jon Bon Jovi, Bruce Springsteen, Queen Latifah, and soon-to-be legend, Charlie Puth.

We also know that many of our favorite singing stars have given a go at acting, and in many cases, it was a big success. I think Queen Latifah's work in Chicago is a great example.

But how about those New Jersey actors who have risen to the top of Hollywood and still needed more. They wanted to be rock stars, too.

So who are these rock-loving New Jersey actors? The names might just surprise you.

Bruce Willis. Yes, Die Hard's John McClane is a singer, in case you didn't know. He released an album, titled The Return of Bruno in 1987. And believe it or not, one of his songs was a top 5 hit.

The song was called "Respect Yourself", it featured June Pointer, from Pointer Sisters fame, and it hit #5 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts.

Joe Pesci. It's really not fair to call Joe Pesci an actor who wanted to be a rock star, because his career really started in music. He once played guitar for Joey Dee and the Starliters.

Pesci released his debut album in 1968. Movie fans all over the world, though, are thrilled that his career path steered him toward movies, where he starred in memorable role after memorable role throughout his impressive career.

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
