What actor does Marty Balin () look like? He reminds me of someone, and it's at the tip of my tongue, just can't think of the name. . . . I KNOW he's a singer. I'm simply wondering what actor he resembles. Today I found out that… When did Marty Balin become an actor? He's the founder and co-singer of the Jefferson Airplane. Never knew he made any movies outside of getting beaten up by the Hell's Angels in the film Gimme Shelter. Has he switched careers since the Airplane? Are you thinking of Hugh Jackman of the Xmen?
