Music Stars Turned Hollywood Producers

Will Smith and Jay Z are proving to be a powerful combination. After the two East Coast natives linked up to produce the Broadway show Fela, they teamed up once again to go Hollywood for the movie Annie, which is set to come out later this year. Now, they're making a move to television. Jay, Will and electro-house singer/DJ Calvin Harris are producing a comedy for HBO — no joke. And they're not the first recording artists to have stepped behind the lens. Read on for more music stars who've also worked as producers on TV shows and movies.
