Do You Have A Favorite Celebrity?
Chances are, if you have a favorite celebrity, they probably got their start on a TV show! Actually I think almost all of the actors and actresses out there have either had their start on a TV show or they have been featured on one! For instance, take a look at Steve Carell (who is one of my favorite people).
He got his start on Life As We Know It! (1991) and he played a TV star on other shows as well like “The Dana Carvey Show”, “Just Shoot Me”, and “Saturday Night Live” and now? He’s a big shot move star in movies like Dan in Real Life (2007), Get Smart (2008), Little Miss Sunshine (2006) and Evan Almighty (2007)! I love this guy, I would really watch him in almost anything – almost anything. Other box office actors and actresses that have played in TV shows include some of YOUR favorites like:
“Centennial” (1978) TV mini-series
“The Facts of Life” George Burnett
Bennett Brothers (1987) (TV)
Ocean’s Eleven (2001)
The Good German (2006)
Michael Clayton (2007)
“Molly” Courtney (2 episodes, 1990)
Camp Cucamonga (1990) (TV)
“Friends” Rachel Green
Marley & Me (2008)
Along Came Polly (2004)
He’s Just Not That Into You (2009)
“The Beautiful Phyllis Diller Show”
“The Dean Martin Show”
“The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson”
Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In: 25th Anniversary Reunion (1993) (TV)
Dreaming of Tibet (2003)
The First Wives Club (1996)
The Banger Sisters (2002)
While these are three of a ton more – these are some of the more well-known ones that’s for sure! Television has more channels than ever before, more prime-time shows than ever before, and, of course, more commercials than ever before. And yet, to the consternation of many television industry executives, the one thing it seems to have fewer of is one of the most essential commodities of the business: stars. All of these performers owe their stardom much more to their previous work than their current work.
Mr. (Don) Johnson, in fact, is often cited as the kind of white-hot star of a generation ago, when he was in ”Miami Vice,” that is rarely if ever generated today. Well, either way – TV or movies, I’m just glad that we have such an amazing degree of choices amongst the “stars”. Personally, I’m glad shows like Friends and ER came along – without them, who’s to say we would ever have a Jen or a George? You never know!
