Which Famous Actor's Career Should've Taken Off, But Sadly Didn't?

Danny Pudi deserves to be in more TV shows/movies!

There are some amazing actors out there who have truly worked their butts off in movies and TV shows. After you watch them in something amazing, you probably think to yourself: "I can't wait to see what else they do! They're incredibly talented!"

Sony Pictures Releasing

But sometimes their careers don't take off like you expect them to, and you're left wondering why. These talented actors are left out in the dust, while other actors are constantly offered new roles and opportunities.

Currently wondering why Lana Condor hasn’t received any major work in Hollywood yet after carrying the #ToAllTheBoys trilogy on her back with her charm and charisma, while Noah Centineo has been tied to BLACK ADAM, HE-MAN, the “GameStop” movie, etc etc etc 🤔

That made me want to ask you, dear reader: Which famous actor deserves a bigger career in Hollywood?

Maybe you were frustrated when Patrick Fugit didn't get offered more movie roles after killing it at William Miller in Almost Famous (2000), and his career seemed to slowly fizzle out.

DreamWorks Pictures

Or perhaps you thought Mo'Nique was beyond brilliant as Mary Lee Johnston in Precious (2009), and you couldn't believe she wasn't offered bigger roles, especially since she won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress.


Or maybe you believe Danny Pudi was one of the most talented actors on Community (2009—2014), and you were pretty bummed when his career didn't totally skyrocket like you thought it would.


Whoever it is, we want to know! Tell us which famous actor deserves a bigger career in Hollywood, and why you think so, in the comments below.


The fact that Karyn Parsons didn't star in more movies or TV shows after The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air (1990–1996) is a travesty!
