Post Popular actors who's career looked like it was going nowhere
The opposite of "Once popular actors/actresses whose careers went nowhere" - who beat everyone's expectations

This thread is inspired by Ray Romano who looks like he's on the rise as a legitimate actor (The Irishman, just announced new HBO Max series where he plays a reclusive con man with a sex robot, etc.)

He was also in the short lived Vinyl (Scorsese/Winter show) and Parenthood and still in the Get Shorty series.

I'm still a big fan of ELR so good to see him doing well in both film and TV dramas these days.

BTW - Welcome to Mooseport is still (sadly) Gene Hackman's last film.

Cant believe he retired 15 years ago already, exactly with a 100 acting credits, he had a great career.

It's always weird seeing Chris Pratt pop up in an old movie as the asshole boyfriend or coworker. Like who remembers that he was in Wanted?

Bradley Cooper - I believe not much was expected of him when he was supporting actor on Alias as Garner's friend more than the hundreds of other hot person in a network show castings. He didn't even make enough of an impression to get will they or won't they with her'd. Then comedy character actor, then all around superstar

Blake Lively - has broken out of the Gossip Girl expectations

Michelle Williams - I do not know if on Dawson's Creek people saw a many time Oscar nominee type of talent. I'm guessing not.

Jennifer Lawrence - she was on a TBS sitcom

Yeah Cooper was in a bunch of smaller stuff, and played the asshole boyfriend etc etc etc. And then... broke out.

Olivia Wilde as Marissa's bi fling had the most successful career of the OC actors (not counting 12 year old Shailene)

Definitely agree. He was the definition of "young hot actor with zero talent" on Alias. Then he was kind of funny in Wedding Crashers and it slowly progressed from there.
