Rock stars just can't seem to say no when it comes to the acting bug. The sad truth is that rarely do musicians make good actors. Nonetheless, from Bing Crosby to Tupac Shakur, plenty of musicians have made the move to the big screen. Next in line is Jonathan Davis, of the perpetually angry rock band Korn.

Blabbermouth.net has reported that the Korn front man has signed to star in the Southern Gothic-horror flick Job. Relative newcomer Jon Grey is at the helm, and the film will begin shooting in Texas this December. Job also stars Bill Moseley of The Devil's Rejects, and will center on a serial killer with a religious obsession. This isn't Davis' first attempt at an acting career; he also had a major role in the horror film Sin-Jin Smythe. It looks like the world will have to wait to see his debut though, as Sin-Jin Smythe has yet to find a release date.

You have to wonder if it is possible to be both a great actor and a great musician -- in Davis's case, the jury is still out on both counts. I can think of plenty who have failed, but which musicians do you think have managed to succeed?
