  1. don’t forget, Chris Evans was also in The Perfect Score. That was actually the film of his I saw.

  2. I already knew that tom hanks started off as a comedian have you not seen Bachelor Party watch it it’s hilarious

    • He’s done some decent drama work, but I think most people still consider him primarily a comic actor.

  3. Forget? WTF are you talking about? Anyone who watched these t.v. shows and movies would not forget the comedy stars or their start.And for me Michael Keaton is best known for playing Beetlejuice.And b4 that Billy Blazejowski in Night Shift.
