From 'Enchanted' to the Grammys?

We're still swooning over James Marsden joining Lady Antebellum for a Garth Brooks sing-along on On Air With Ryan Seacrest. If you haven't watched it yet, do that right now.

Now that we're all on the same page, Marsden secretly being a great singer isn't exactly a surprise to anyone who saw him in Enchanted or Hairspray, or even Ally McBeal. But it got us thinking about other actors who aren't known for their musical talents who really should consider releasing an album. Heck, it might help get them one step closer to an EGOT. 

Watch James Marsden Sing Garth Brooks With Lady Antebellum

Check out a few of our picks -- along with evidence of their music prowess -- below, and then be sure to let us know which actor's (currently unannounced) album you'd love to buy. 

5. Kristen Bell
Evidence: You already know (and should be obsessed with) her singing from Frozen, but check out this 2005-era performance of "Fame." Get it, girl.

4. Ansel Elgort
Evidence: Girls already love the Fault in Our Stars dude. Can you imagine the fan levels if he also sang ballads? Here he is channeling Bob Dylan.

3. Emma Stone (a.k.a Emily)
Evidence: She can rock the hell out of a lip-sync concert, but she's pretty great while using her own voice as well. Turns out there's nothing she can't do. 

2. Taran Killem
Evidence: A.) This high school performance. B.) This goofy Halloween song from the Saturday Night Live star.

1. Sarah Hyland
Evidence: She's already friends with Taylor Swift, so she's got a built-in duet partner. Let's make this happen!
