The Baldwin brothers are the closest thing people used to have to the modern-day Hemsworths. And much like the Hemsworths, people always had to pick a favorite. In the Baldwins’ case, it was obviously Alec.
He rose to prominence following his performance as Joshua Rush in season six and season seven of the CBS television drama, Knots Landing. Since then, he has appeared in numerous movies portraying various distinguished roles, including Jack Ryan in The Hunt for Red October.
Tommy Lee Jones
At Harvard, where Tommy Lee Jones roomed with Al Gore and graduated cum laude in 1969, he played varsity football, as well. As an all-league offensive guard, he participated in the Harvard vs. Yale game known as “The Tie,” the most famous game in Ivy League history. He also appeared in undergrad theater productions. Students would find him in the sports locker room suiting up in costume for rehearsal! Acting won out. Now we know him as the big screen’s worst tough guy in films like MIB and The Fugitive.
In between stage productions, Jones starred on daytime soap One Life to Live. It was not exactly his career dream, but the part led him on the path to the podium where he accepted an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor in The Fugitive. It also scored him a sequel. He became one of the best paid and most highly sought-after actors in the industry. Like many Hollywood greats, he’s tried his hand at directing and producing. His theatrical feature film debut, The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada, earned him the Best Actor Award at Cannes.
Part of the enjoyment of watching the TV shows Spin City and Melrose Place was the gorgeous actress, Heather Locklear. Even decades after her role as Sammy Jo in Dynasty she looks just as vibrant.
Maybe it's the Hollywood glow, maybe it's her second divorce, who knows? For now we can only enjoy her glow by watching her in her latest role as First Lady Katelynn Christian in the TV show Too Close to Home.
Shemar Moore is in it for the long haul. Just ask any TV show he's been on. While TV and movie stars make a lot of money, they rarely know when they might get their next project. Moore is one of those rare actors who enjoy a steady income because he simply works on never-ending TV shows for years on end.
Many might know him as Derek Morgan from his 12-year-long stint in Criminal Minds which began in 2005. But his acting career started way back in 1994 when he played Malcolm Winters in the soap opera The Young and the Restless. He played this part on and off until 2019! That’s more stable than most Hollywood relationships!
Don’t let that porcelain skin and red hair fool you, Julianne Moore is a total badass. Daughter of a U.S. Army Paratrooper and born at Fort Bragg in North Carolina, Moore is a total military brat. She attended nine different schools as her father was relocated, which might explain how she can fit so well into any role she plays.
Her soap opera stint includes a triple (!) role in As the World Turns. For three years, she played two identical half-sisters and their cousin. It looks like some things can only happen in soap operas.
