Not many actors can make the transition from the screen to the studio, but Jared Leto, frontman for grandiose rock band Thirty Seconds to Mars, has succeeded where other thespians like Russell Crowe have failed. 30STM just won an MTV Video Music Awards and picked up nominations for three MTV Europe Music Awards, and their performance at this year's iHeartRadio Music Festival (as one of the few actual rock bands on the bill) was one of the highlights of the entire Vegas weekend.

But of course, Jared is still an acclaimed actor, with massive Oscar buzz for his role in this year's Dallas Buyers Club, for which he lost 40 pounds to play a transgender junkie living with HIV.
