* Creator/KevinHart is climbing up this ladder as we speak, in large part thanks to his highly respected stand up career. While the films he's starred in, like ''Film/RideAlong'' and ''Film/GrudgeMatch'', haven't been well-received by critics, audiences have enjoyed them more thanks to box office gross. Time will tell whether or not he'll still be a box office magnet, though.

* Creator/TimAllen. With his pre-teenage life marred by the loss of his father, and his adult years disfigured by drug use, Allen managed to make a name of himself in the stand-up circuit, both on television and record, so that his life can go on the right track. He never conceived himself to be an actor, having stated at one point that he could only act based on "personal experience," but he eventually found his big break when he became star of the ABC sitcom ''Series/HomeImprovement'', which became one of the highest-rated sitcoms of the 1990's. A chart-topping book from him soon followed, his first major film role, ''Film/TheSantaClause'', became the 4th highest-grossing domestic release of 1994, and then he voiced Buzz Lightyear in a little animated project known as ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'', which became a pop-culture behemoth overnight. Hollywood soon began courting him for more film roles, but he turned down most of them due to his limited acting experience. Consequently, he only studio he received roles from was Creator/{{Disney}}, who produced both ''The Santa Clause'' and ''Home Improvement'' and is Allen's close production partner. During that time, he starred in the Disney films ''Film/Jungle2Jungle'' and ''Film/ForRicherOrPoorer'', whose theatrical runs were overshadowed by Allen's highly-publicized DUI arrest in Michigan, with his troubled past having caught up with him. After ''Home Improvement'' was cancelled in 1999, he seemed to be heading back on the road to stardom, starring in ''Film/GalaxyQuest'' (his ''only'' non-Disney project during his hey day) and reprising his role as Buzz in ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory2'', but quickly fell back into recession after starring in a few more forgettable film roles after that. While he hasn't disappeared from the spotlight completely, thanks to another ABC sitcom, ''Series/LastManStanding'', and the continued success of the ''Toy Story'' franchise, his career heights from the 1990's have long passed.

* Creator/TomHanks has had a blockbuster career right from the start, spending much the 80's starring in well-recieved comedy hits such as ''Film/{{Splash}}'' and ''Film/{{Big}}'', as well as cult classics ''Film/BachelorParty'', ''Film/NothingInCommon'' and ''Film/TheBurbs''. Although he initially preferred to stick to comedy fare during those years, [[TomHanksSyndrome he got into more serious subject matter just a decade later]], which ended up pushing his career to heights he would had never imagined in the 80's. He ended up scoring '''two''' Academy Awards for Best Actor in a row for his performances in ''Film/{{Philadelphia}}'' and ''Film/ForrestGump'', as well as a nomination for his performance in ''Film/SavingPrivateRyan''. Since then, he's mostly stuck to dramatic fare and away from comedic roles, and most of his performances during those years have been accused of being OscarBait, but despite a few slip-ups [[Film/TheDavinciCode here]] and [[Film/LarryCrowne there]], his career or reputation hasn't been damaged one bit.

* Creator/KristenBell has been pushed heavily by Hollywood in the past few years, but it was her ''Film/ForgettingSarahMarshall'' co-stars, Creator/MilaKunis and Creator/RussellBrand (himself in danger of this trope), who became bigger stars out of the deal. So far, she's decently well-known, but is nowhere near what Hollywood was hoping. While she had a lead role in Disney's box office juggernaut ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'', voice-over success tends to not translate back into live-action (ask ''Disney/{{Tangled}}'''s Mandy Moore,) and the majority of the hype that did come out of ''Frozen'' seems to have gone to Creator/IdinaMenzel (or even Josh Gad). She's only been in two live-action films that grossed more than $40 million (''Marshall'' and ''Couples Retreat'') and she was part of an ensemble with both; with the ''Film/VeronicaMars'' film having a simultaneous launch on video-on-demand, her cold live-action streak will live on.

* The cast of ''Series/BandOfBrothers'' undoubtedly got this - the most prominent of which included Damian Lewis and Ron Livingston. Lewis's attempts in films didn't amount to much - with bombs like ''{{Film/Dreamcatcher}}'', ''{{Film/Stormbreaker}}'' and ''Film/YourHighness''. But on television, he fared much better with the worldwide success that was ''{{Series/Homeland}}''. After he left that, he successfully transitioned to another headlining role in ''{{Series/Billions}}''. Livingston already had fame from ''Film/OfficeSpace'' but remained in below-the-radar projects, the most high profile of which was ''Film/TheConjuring''. The men in the cast who became stars - Creator/MichaelFassbender, Creator/JamesMcAvoy, Creator/TomHardy and Creator/SimonPegg - had minor roles, with Fassbender the only one who appeared in more than two episodes. Creator/NealMcDonough and Creator/RossMcCall became TV regulars, while Frank John Hughes transitioned to screen writing. Scott Grimes's attempt at joining a franchise - Ridley Scott's ''Film/RobinHood2010'' - was unsuccessful, but he enjoyed more success in [[Series/AmericanDad voice acting]] and music. A lot of the rest were doomed to type casting or else retired from acting altogether.

* With the initial success of ''Series/GossipGirl'', Creator/LeightonMeester was praised as a potential breakout star. Five major films featuring her were released from 2010-2011 - including ''Film/CountryStrong'', clearly intended as OscarBait. All of them flopped with audiences and critics, though Leighton herself was praised as being better than the material. After ''Gossip Girl'' ended, she turned to indie films and had some minor success with a music career - but nothing with the high profile she once enjoyed. She did land a role on the FX comedy ''Making History'', so time will tell. Ironically the opposite happened with her co-star Creator/BlakeLively; widely predicted that she would only remain famous for fashion and her marriage to Ryan Reynolds, she surprised everyone with very [[BeautyInversion against-type]] turns in ''{{Film/Hick}}'' and ''Film/TheTown''. She later won critical acclaim for ''Film/TheAgeOfAdaline'' and ''Film/TheShallows'', which were modest Box Office hits - showing that she wasn't above taking risks in acting.


Added DiffLines:

* Creator/DianeKruger debuted with a memorable bang in ''{{Film/Troy}}'' as Helen and got lots of work in America as a result. She also won lots of critical acclaim for ''Film/IngloriousBasterds''. But she rarely found herself getting work outside of roles that catered to her beauty, and her momentum seemed to dry up in TheNewTens. She's still modelling and working away though, so she's not completely gone.

* C. Thomas Howell was one of the 80's top rising stars, appearing in hits like ''Film/TheOutsiders'' and ''Film/RedDawn'' and becoming a TeenIdol. However, he blew it all with 1986's ''Film/SoulMan'', which (while a box office success) garnered a lot of controversy because Howell spent most of the movie in blackface. Since then, Howell has been appearing in a bunch of B-movies and TV shows.
