Actors who can sing

We're going to have to go and have a doctor hit our knee, as our jerk-out-reaction whenever we hear the words "... taking a break from acting to release an album" seems to be seizing up. Not only is Zooey Deschanel's She And Him project better than her entire acting CV put together (yes, even the episode of Frasier where she was Roz's cousin. Even including that one.)

Now, Shawnee Smith and Missi Pyle have set aside the handicap of being Jill Cleveland in Murder, She Wrote and the woman with the monotone voice in Boston Legal to put together the imaginatively-titled Smith and Pyle, and it's actually sounding - well, quite good. At least on the basis of advance mp3s Spankin and Sugar.
