Gotta Start Somewhere: 6 Marvel Actors’ First Acting Jobs
I’m an actor and all I’m asking for is one superhero franchise. Just one. And maybe a water campaign too ‘cuz Jenni Ani is raking in that SmartWater $$. To help pass the time until then, I look up my future peers’ early IMDB credits. Gotta start somewhere. Check out these Marvel actors’ early roles.
1. Robert Downey Jr.
Iron Man’s first role was in his father’s film Pound when he was five. So basically like when you’d spend the day at your mom’s office stapling things.
2. Brie Larson
Yup, that’s Captain Marvel’s official look! Anyway, she made her acting debut in sketches on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. So ‘dorable.
3. Chris Hemsworth
Thor was once King Arthur on a show called Guinevere Jones, a 2002 Canadian/Australian fantasy series. I’m already obsessed.
4. Scarlett Johansson
Black Widow played Molly Pruitt in Home Alone 3 in 1997 and d’awww so precious!
5. Tom Hiddleston
You know it’s a juicy small role when the character’s name is “Operator”. And it’s in 2001. And it’s in a movie called Conspiracy followed by the words “TV” and “movie”.
6. Zoe Saldana
Gamora passed the true actor rite of passage by guest-starring on Law and Order. Dun-dun.
