Actors Whose Movie Careers Were Supposed to be Much Bigger

Morris Chesnut

Now this guy, I thought he’d have made it.  Boyz in the Hood was one of, if not the biggest movies of the early 90s.  I would have thought the rugged looks and charming personality would have landed him some big time roles.  It was nice to see him again in 2003 in the movie Confidence but Chestnut never really hit superstardom.  He’s a good actor but I don’t think he ever reached his potential movie wise.  He has however, had a great television career and decent movie roles.   I just thought he’d be one of the leading men in Hollywood.
