Your wife has excellent taste.
She's not really a former star since she is still on TV but, Jennifer Love Hewitt. Ghost Whisperer and The Client List aren't shows I would have watched without her being in them.
Ian Somerhalder (Lost and now TVD)
Josh Cooke (Committed, Four Kings, Big Day, Better With You)
Christian Slater (My Own Worst Enemy, The Forgotten, Breaking In)
And now David Walton (Perfect Couples, Bent)
Girls - I think she's the only one
Courteney Cox (Friends, Dirt, Cougar Town)
Robert Downey Jr.
I can't think of anyone. Allyson Hannigan probably would have been a choice, and I fully intended to watch HIMYM from the start...but at this point I've seen 1 episode, and that was last year.
There are several stars I like, but I'm not sure there are any that I'd automatically watch their show no matter what. Matthew Perry is probably the closest for me. I watched Friends, Studio 60, and Mr. Sunshine, and I'll check out his new one.
Of all the people named in this thread, I either don't know who they are, or I like them and would watch a show initially just to see them.
There is no one named here that I actively dislike or avoid. Well, except that Justin Bateman fella. I like his brother and his sister, just not him.
Laurie Metcalf. Was very disappointed to see "Easy Money" canceled before anyone knew about it. Almost seems like it should have been a SHO/HBO series rather than on the CW.
While having an actor I like will get me to watch a first episode, there has to be more than that to keep me watching.
She is doing something on Broadway right now. I can't remember what.
There aren't any former stars I can think of.
Of the current actors I watch, if Timothy Olyphant or Sebastian Stan were on a new show, I would probably check it out. Sebastian will be on a cable show later this year that I'll make a point of trying just because he's in it.
But, if they were in a show that looked awful, I wouldn't watch just to see them.
Big Band Theory, the Musical?
What? No mention of George Clooney, Tom Hanks, John Travolta, Robin Williams, or Will Smith yet? To unlikely to ever return to TV maybe or nobody old enough to remember? (or both?)
Pretty much any of the early SNL regulars? Or were they not considered TV stars then?
Seriously, NOBODY has watched Last Man Standing just because Tim Allen is on it?
I would still check it out just in case...
Current stars for me would include Sebastian and Daniel Gillies (obv) and Matt Davis. The show with Stan is called Political Animals and it's a 6 episode miniseries. I do plan to watch no matter how bad it is. Gillies is called Saving Hope and Matt's new show is called Cult.
I didn't know who either of those two were so I looked them up and found a Vampire Diaries theme happening!
It's actually a good show. I am not a fan of Tim Allen's per se, but my wife wanted to watch it. Now we both really like it.
I could think of a bunch, but the first one that came to mine is Neil Patrick Harris. He's totally won me over. I'll watch him in anything.
Oh and I guess I can add Terry O'Quinn to mine. I'll be watching 666 Park Avenue just for him.
Guilty as charged
