Fast & Furious Latino Musicians Turned Actors!

Ludacris and Eminem aren’t the only rappers who can act — in this weekend’s Fast Five (the fifth movie in the Fast & Furious franchise), reggaetoneros Tego Calderón, 39 and Don Omar, 33, reprise their roles as street racers Leo (Calderon) and Santos (Omar). "It’s good to have a career, but it’s also important to have a passion and I think I have found a new passion for film,” said the Puerto Rican Don Omar. “I put my music on hold to make this movie,” adds Omar, who says he would like to be known by his birth name (William Omar Landrón) now that he's pursuing a career as an actor in Hollywood. 

In honor of Tego and Don Omar’s roles in Fast Five, let's take a look at other Latin musicians who have successfully crossed over into acting!
