British-Australian actor, Guy Pearce, known for his bad guy movie roles in "The Count of Monte Cristo" and "Ironman 3," made his very own music video, and its nothing short of bizarre.

Pearce, who’s a multi-awarded and nominated actor best known for portraying eccentric Andy Warhol in "Shop Girl" and a tranny in "Priscilla, Queen of the Desert," quietly released a music video, "Fly All the Way," from his equally quietly released album, "Broken Bones." The video is peculiar, to say the least, and NSFW towards the end it’s actually quite good.

While Pearce’s more famous colleagues, like Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe, have only recently broken into the music genre, Pearce has been seriously into making music for nearly 30 years. This is the first time he’s released an album of his own.

"Every time I did an interview in the late '80s and early '90s and mentioned I made music the journalist would roll their eyes and go, 'Not another f—— actor who's going to release a single,'" Pearce, 47, admitted to Australia’s News Corp.

“Fly All the Way” features Pearce’s high octave voice backed by a surprisingly catchy grunge-glam sort of rock. The video combines all manner of celebrity endorsement ads and infomercials with Pearce appearing as different characters: businessmen, TV pitchmen, a workout instructor, a gay stylist and even Billy Mays and Steve Jobs.

Pearce, by his own admission, has been writing music since "Neighbors," the 1985 TV series he’s starred in. However, he’s never mustered the courage to release any of it until now.

"I didn't have the confidence to come forward with the music I was making," he told ABC RN, as published on Huffington Post. While his contemporaries — Kylie Minogue, Craig McLachlan and Jason Donovan — went on to become stars in their own right, Pearce stuck to what he deemed a much safer bet: movies and television.

Finally, with "Fly All the Way," Pearce manages to indeed “fly all the way” with his never-before revealed goofy side. View his slightly NSFW (he grows boobs) music video here:
