10 Up-And-Coming Actors Who Never Quite Made It
Since Taylor Kitsch‘s birthday was this week, I’ve been celebrating the same way I always have — by thinking about Taylor Kitsch. And the thing I’ve been thinking about the most is why he isn’t around more. A couple years ago, everyone was promising that he was The Next Big Thing, about to blow up like crazy and hit the A-List like a ton of bricks.
But he just… never did. Not sure why. He still does projects and stuff, and has a devoted fan base who I’m sure will have a big problem with me saying he hasn’t made it, but he really hasn’t. He was so hyped up that it’s like we set up a whole party for him, but he never quite showed up to it. I guess it’s possible that he’s still on his way, but some of these streamers are getting pretty droopy, y’know? And I have absolutely no doubt that some of the rest of the up-and-comers polished off his cake a long time ago.
Because that’s right! There are more people just like Taylor out there! And I made a list of nine of them. A whole variety of people who never made it as big as everyone expected. Just a bunch of up-and-comers who never actually up and came.
