It seems like many big actors and actresses are taking roles on television shows these days. Maybe it’s the steady paycheck or the fact that television sometimes offers them better roles than films. Whatever the case, we have noticed a trend and that trend involves actors and actresses flocking back to the small screen and finding great success. In this article, we are only going to focus on actors – big actors – who were pretty well established on the big screen and then made the brave leap to (or back to, in some cases) television. With actors like this on the small screen, it just might be the place to be!
7. Woody Harrelson
Woody Harrelson rose to fame on the sitcom “Cheers.” It didn’t take the actor long, however, to transition to the big screen. To date, he has been nominated for two Academy Awards, one for Best Actor for “The People vs. Larry Flint” and the other for Best Supporting Actor for “The Messenger.” While Harrelson currently has a supporting role in the “Hunger Games” movies, he has also found success on the small screen again in the HBO series “True Detective” where he earned an Emmy nomination for his incredible performance.Helga Esteb / Shutterstock.com
