6 Hollywood Stars Who Totally Reinvented Themselves


This week brings us Run All Night, the latest in a long line of Liam Neeson-powered action thrillers, but any cinephile out of college will tell you that the actor used to be known not for kicking ass but contending for Oscars and BAFTAs. That’s right – though the next generation might know him as Qui-Gon Jinn and Bryan Mills, he’s also portrayed the likes of Oskar Schindler and Alfred Kinsey.

In honor of Neeson’s new film, which continues the Oscar nominee’s remarkable evolution into one of Hollywood’s most bankable action stars, we’re taking a look at 6 actors who managed to totally reinvent themselves, ending up in a completely different area of cinema than where they started out.

As always, if you think we’ve left anyone off the list that should be included, feel free to let us know by dropping a comment down below.
