Hugh Laurie has gone through many transformations in his career, from the uber-posh Bertie Wooster in Jeeves And Wooster to a smart and snarky doctor in House. Now he's trying his hand at being a blues man with his debut album, Let Them Talk. Laurie plays piano, as well as guitar, drums, sax and harmonica. Phew! He's also appeared on Meat Loaf's last album, Hang Cool Teddy Bear.
He's just one of a long line of actors turned singers, but how have other thespians who have tried to launch a music career fared?
