For TV actors, movies seem like the viable next step in their career. But not everyone makes it. Actually most of these actors will probably appear in one of those TMZ ‘Memba Them?!’ posts years from now. Still, there’s no need to be so pessimistic because right now we have a number of talented actors working in television.
I’ve put together a list of 8 TV actors who are ready for the big screen. Have in mind that Jon Hamm, Peter Dinklage and Michael C. Hall are not on this list. They are obviously amazing at what they do, and I don’t need to remind you.
Appeared In These TV Shows: Big Love, Breaking Bad
Aaron Paul is the other actor on AMC’s Breaking Bad who deserves a movie career. The show is basically done (one-half of a season to go), and unlike his co-star Bryan Cranston, Paul hasn’t booked that many film gigs. He recently got the lead role in the action film Need for Speed, an adaptation of the Electronic Arts video game. And while the film will most likely give him a nice paycheck, he should be signing up for more character-driven projects. He’s definitely got the talent for a drama.
