Originally posted 03/26/2014 08:00AM

What's the only thing hotter than a hot guy? A hot guy who can sing, of course!

That's why the Internet has swooned at old footage of Divergent star Theo James performing with his now-defunct rock band Shere Khan. It turns out, besides looking like an evolutionary blend of James Franco and Johnathon Schaech, the dude has some pipes; when he sings James has a broody, José Gonzales thing going on.

But the smoldering Briton isn't the only sexy thespian with musical ambitions. Below, a tour of the hot actors who would also like to be known as hot singers.

It's been more than a decade since VH1's I Love the '80s went off the air, and in its absence, American teens have fallen behind in the crucial area of '80s awareness.

Happy 30th Birthday Footloose: It's Time to Cut ... Twerkloose!
