Before They Were Famous – Michael Shannon

michael shannonI love the before they were famous stuff. If you have paid attention to Hollywood, you know that no one (well almost no one) comes from no where. Take Michael Shannon for example. Before he was famous for his roles on HBO’s Boardwalk Empire¬†as the unstable Nelson Van Alden and as General Zod in Man of Steel, Michael Shannon had a small but memorable part in one of my favorite movies, Groundhog Day.


There aren’t many of us who wouldn’t love to be a rich and famous Hollywood actor. We might change our minds if we knew the truth about how long most of them toil in the time before they were famous until they hit it big.
