Clips from superstar actors’ early roles show what they were like before they were famous

Before They Were Famous

Landing a big role very early in your acting career is the exception to rule. For most actors — even the biggest superstars on the planet — it has taken years of hard work for them to make a name for themselves. And along the way, they’ve all taken minor roles here and there to make ends meet and hone their craft. Of course, it’s always fun to look back on those roles now that they’re big superstars, and we’re going to have some fun right now.
