    Dominic Chianese most famously played Corrado Soprano (Uncle Junior) on "The Sopranos". If you live in the area of NJ,CT, and NY, it's not hard to catch him in a performance somewhere.

    Avery Brooks can sing and this is an incredibly weird interview and he's a bit zany but his piano playing is great too. No singing here, just an instrumental response to a question from Bill.

    Emily Blount -- unless she was lip-syncing? -- did an excellent job in the film version of Steven Sondheim's "Into The Woods"

    Zooey Deschanel is the very definition of quirky... and heart achingly gorgeous.

    Jessica Pimentel from Orange is the New Black is a legit death metal singer (and in a long term relationship with the drummer from Meshuggah)
