With New Year’s Eve's superstar cast being comprised of a slew of TV veterans who hit it big on the big screen, we wanted to ask our readers: Who's your favorite TV star turned movie star?
New Year’s Eve is about as loaded with superstars as any film this year (check out our New Year’s Eve review). A slew of them got their start on TV and now light up the silver screen after toiling for years on the small screen. Such as:
Hilary Swank: Hilary Swank is a two-time Oscar winner, but her early days were much more humble. She had a recurring role on the original 90210. You’ve come a long way, baby!
Josh Duhamel: Mr. Movie Leading Man got his start on the soap All My Children and continued his TV run with the hit show Las Vegas.
Lea Michele: Lea Michele is currently still on her hit show, Glee, and with New Year’s Eve she is making the jump to big screen starlet.
Sofia Vergara: Like Michele, Sofia Vergara is on a current TV show hit, Modern Family. New Year’s Eve is only one of the films she’s made this year, including The Smurfs.
Katherine Heigl: After famously leaving Grey’s Anatomy, Heigl has had mixed success on screen, most notably Knocked-Up. Some also forget, she was in the show Roswell before jumping to Seattle Grace on Grey’s Anatomy.
Ashton Kutcher: First there was That '70s Show, and now Ashton Kutcher has famously taken Charlie Sheen’s place on Two and a Half Men. Like Heigl, Kutcher’s film career has been mostly hit or miss and frankly, mostly misses.
Jessica Biel: Imagine the sugary sweet Seventh Heaven without Jessica Biel. Hardly!
So, this got Movie Fanatic wondering...
