Prior to his acting career, Josh Duhamel played quarterback for the Beavers while dreaming of an NFL career. He loved playing football but settled for acting. As fate would have it, he started out as a model and transitioned into acting through his popular role of Leo in All My Children.
Transformers just would not have been the same without drop-dead-gorgeous knockout Duhamel. He recently became single after divorcing Black Eyed Peas popstar, Stacy Ferguson. Ladies, get in line.
Justin Hartley was a cast regular in TV shows such as Smallville and Revenge, but you probably remember his face from the recent NBC drama This is Us.
Hartley and that lovely square jaw of his were actually around for longer than you think. In 2002, he got the part of Fox Crane in the soap opera Passions. He served as the on-set heartthrob for four years and left the show two years before it came to an end.
When a soap opera has been around for 58 (!) seasons, it stands to reason that almost any actor in Hollywood would have passed through it at some point. General Hospital is one such show.
Amber Tamblyn started her acting career as a child actress, playing the role of Emily Quartermaine from 1995 to 2001. She later gained world fame when she starred in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. Now you may slap your own forehead and say “So that’s where I know her from!”
Taking a dip in the Hemsworth gene pool would have been a service we would all happily pay good money for. With 6′ 3″ of blue-eyed charm and sexy Australian accent, Liam is not only great to watch but also wonderful to hear.
Liam gained world fame playing Gale Hawthorne in The Hunger Games franchise, but his fellow Australians knew him way before that. His first acting credit was a guest appearance in Home and Away, the same soap opera his brother Chris starred in for several years.
Actress, producer, and overall goddess Elizabeth Banks started out small. Before becoming the trailblazer she is and landing her role in The Hunger Games franchise, she had to settle for smaller roles.
One such role was that of a young waitress named Rosalie in All My Children. The part was tiny but the rest of Banks’s career was nothing like it.
