Weird timing. Bogart had been mainly supporting characters in films (like Angels with Dirty Faces and The Petrified Forest), but made this just before his big breaks in The Roaring Twenties, High Sierra, and The Maltese Falcon.

McConaughy's career trajectory is probably one of the weirdest out there. Like, when he did Texas Chainsaw Massacre he was known but certainly not someone anybody expected to go on to win a Best Actor Oscar. But then again, nobody expected that out of him even long after he'd become an A-list star. He's had several career phases where it's like "is this even the same guy?".

When people saw The Dark Tower a lot of them were saying "a solid performance by McConaughy but wasted in a poo poo movie". Well, yea, that's a lot of what he's done his whole career. Waste solid performances on projects that aren't worthy of his talents. That run he had a few years ago is the exception, not the rule.

Not horror, but there's an episode of Law and Order season 1 that has Hoffman's first credited appearance. The episode also stars Samuel L. Jackson before he broke out.

I'm pretty sure McConaughey is literally the one person in history to have both appeared in an Unsolved Mysteries dramatic re-enactment and won an Academy Award.

He's really hit the ends of the spectrum in his time.

Lance Henriksen is one of those actors like Eric Roberts who to this day will be in your movie for a sandwich and bus fare. He was even in a Brazilian soap opera about MUTANTS.

John Boyega in Attack the Block


I feel like this is kind of an odd example; first off, he's straight up the protagonist of the movie and not a bit character, and second off, it's the movie that explicitly launched his career rather than a pre-breakout role (seriously, iirc AtB is literally why he's Finn in Star Wars now). like, I dunno, if my reaction to him getting really, really big was "holy poo poo it's the guy from Attack the Block!" rather than watching AtB and going "holy poo poo it's Finn!" then it kinda doesn't fit.

e: I feel like it would be a slightly better example if, like, the guy who played that random white pothead guy got really famous later on.

e2: huh, I decided to look it up for shits and apparently the guy who played Brewis was in Clash of the Titans too... and then basically got banished to TV movie hell. shame, he was hilarious in that movie.

e3: the guy who played Pest seems to have made a career showing up in low-rent British crime movies (the Danny Dyer types).

Americans, for the most part, have not seen or even heard of Attack the Block. Put Attack the Block on for a theatre of 100 Americans and I guarantee 98 of them will have the "Oh poo poo it's Finn!" reaction.

I guess, but I'm not really sure if it's entirely in the spirit of the thread. He's not playing some stupid teenager who gets an ax through the skull 45 minutes in, he's the star of the movie from start to finish, and he's really good in it.

It's just one of the things that can happen with mid/low budget horror movies, sometimes you get one where the lead is a new discovery and they end up going on to have a big career. Jamie Lee Curtis' film debut was Halloween.

Right, and I'm not sure Jamie Lee Curtis would fit here either, because Halloween was a star-making turn for her. You don't sit down to watch Halloween and go "wow, I didn't know Jamie Lee Curtis was in this!". I guess we're getting into semantics at this point though.

uh... i mean i guess if you just ask random people without selecting for them caring about movies at all, but it got a lot of hype when it came out and it's bounced around streaming services pretty frequently, not to mention it's directed by an Edgar Wright collaborator, so I'd imagine pretty much anyone who's into movies at all has at least heard of it

I get what you're saying but this thread isn't going to go on for very long so it seems a pointless distinction to make. Sometimes actors are in horror movies and then go on to become world famous A-list stars, like Boyega. I'd argue Jamie Lee Curtis didn't reach that level until about a decade after Halloween anyway, she was consistently working slasher films for a while afterwards and very gradually transitioned into more prestigious roles.

Jamie Lee Curtis was cast in A Fish Called Wanda because I think Cynthia Cleese who had seen her in something else. Google isn't helping at the moment as to what that was.

I wouldn’t call Lee a “Star Wars lead”: he was barely in Attack of the Clones and even less in Revenge of the Smith (they sure said ‘Count Dooku’ a crap load of times, though!)
