There was mild surprise a few years back when the serious boy from School Ties turned into the lovable goof of Encino Man.

And now Brendan Fraser is starring in two high-profile movies, The Mummy and Dudley Do-Right.

Sherilyn Fenn: Fenn and Now
Once a cult goddess famed for knotting a cherry stem with her tongue in TV's Twin Peaks, Sherilyn Fenn is gaining cult status again, this time for playing a twisted, recovering alcoholic in Rude Awakening on Showtime.

Kristen Johnson: The Star Who Fell to Earth
The amazon from Whitefish Bay, Wisconsin is an unlikely but beloved star from 3rd Rock who makes Mike Meyers' chest hair sizzle in the new Austin Powers picture.

He's 26 years old. He calls Porky's a "classic movie." He wrote and sold his first screenplay in six weeks. And now American Pie writer Adam Herz is one of the hottest young guys in Hollywood.
