Hard Rock Hollywood

30 Seconds to Mars is the first actor-band that rocks. Or so they say.

"I don't really think there's a choice there for me. It's just something I do, whether it's making films or music," Leto says. (It's not just him either, afflicted by this need to express himself. His brother is a photographer and writer, Milicevic is a certified chef, and Wachter is an artist with a penchant for screen-printing and painting his basses.) "This is just something I've always done and I'm very proud of the films I've done and the music I've made."

Not buying it yet? Well, consider: Leto turned down a part in Clint Eastwood's Flags of Our Fathers to go out on 30 Seconds' last tour. Seems the musician in him is a lot more concerned about squashing any comparisons to Reeves' Dogstar than starring in Oscar-bait. The rest of the band did their best to talk him out of it, too.

"You don't turn down Eastwood," Milicevic laughs.

30 Seconds to Mars, ready for liftoff: Shannon Leto, left, Matt Wachter, Tomo Milicevic, and Jared Leto.

Apparently, some people do.
