Film and TV celebs who have also starred on Broadway are those actors and actresses who have seen success both on screen and on stage. Be it those who got their start in musicals before making the leap to movies and television shows or those already household names who took a break from Hollywood in favor of the stage. Either way, these movie and TV actors who starred on Broadway are all incredibly talented.

Though this list is far from complete of every actor who has appeared and film and television along with on Broadway, sifting through the many names will likely yield some discoveries. Who would have thought that the likes of Anna Kendrick and Abigail Breslin appeared on Broadway at very young ages before making it big in movies? Will Ferrell is very well known for his film and television comedy but did you know he starred in his own Broadway show too?

While both involve acting, appearing in a film or television show, where you have several takes to perfect each scene, is much different from doing eight shows a week in front of a live audience. That's why it isn't surprising that some of the best actors and actresses around have appeared in both formats. Meryl Streep, Al Pacino, Denzel Washington and Julia Roberts are just a few in that category, but far from all of them.

But being a star of both television or film and the Broadway stage isn't the only surprising fact about your favorite actors and actresses that you might not know. Check out the 16 most surprisingly bilingual celebrities and famous people you didn't know were married to each other too!
