1996 – Warner Bros. Feature Animation

Hollywood.

Home of many talented actors and actresses who ply their trade, day in and day out to bring us the entertainment we crave on the silver screen and into our homes through television. 

Did you know, however, that many sports stars, both past and present, went into acting once their careers in their preferred sport were over? 

Some even began acting while they were still professional athletes. 

Now, when we say acting, there are often two strings to their bow. First, they appear as themselves in a movie or TV series and second, they get a bona fide acting gig, one where they actually have to play a character. 

And they certainly are a talented bunch. 

One former college football star, whose career ended prematurely, was even nominated for an Oscar.

But would you be able to identify these athletes-turned-actors by just seeing a single image?
