It’s not uncommon for a celebrity to have an interesting hobby or talent that totally ups their cool factor and makes you admire them even more. David Arquette can knit like a pro and Susan Sarandon is tough to beat in a ping pong match. But a growing number of celebrities have taken their cool factor through the roof, and are behind the turntables as DJs when they’re not in front of the camera.

Despite the demands of their day jobs, these celebrities have managed to find time to make their fans dance to their music at night. Check out some of the celebs who may one day end up dropping beats at a club near you.

Idris Elba made the royal family dance.

Idris Elba is known for his iconic dramatic roles on “The Wire” and “Luther,” but the British actor has another interesting job credit on his resume as well – DJ.

Before Elba was known for his acting, he played the New York club scene to earn extra income in the early 2000s, according to Vulture. Today, Elba plays venues around the world. He even reportedly played a few tracks at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding reception.

Jon Gosselin lets the crowd inspire his playlist.

As the father of twins and sextuplets, Jon Gosselin first found fame as the star of the reality series, “Jon and Kate Plus Eight.” But now that he’s no longer up late changing diapers, Gosselin spends his nights out DJing in Pennsylvania-area clubs.

And Gosselin said he loves the job. “I get to go out, have a good time with all my friends, play the music I like to hear and have the day to myself,” he told People magazine.

Rather than come to the gig with a playlist, Gosselin prefers to read the room and let the crowd inspire what he plays. He said he’s likely to play everything from James Brown to Taylor Swift.

Erykah Badu takes listeners on an eclectic mix of songs from across the ages.

If you think Erykah Badu is cool, you have to meet her alter ego, DJ Lo Down Loretta Brown. Badu says her DJ name was inspired by a character in the 1970s cult classic film, “Cooley High.”

Her sets have a rich texture and showcase her knowledge of music, which spans decades. You’re just as likely to hear her play classic Stevie Wonder track as you will the latest chart-topper by Drake.
