Today's news about Leighton Meester landing her first movie role since the start of Gossip Girl got me thinking about TV stars whose talents could translate well to films. Apparently I'm not the only one on that train of thought these days, as the New York Times just named several TV actors whom they think could make the leap to the big screen.
I agree with the Times story — and with George Clooney himself, who's quoted in it — that Eric Dane of Grey's Anatomy seems to have the right look and style for the big screen. His Grey's costar, Katherine Heigl, has already proven that she can make some serious box office cash. But sometimes the breakout film stars surprise me — like Slumdog Millionaire's Dev Patel, who got his start on the British show Skins.
So, what about you? Which TV folks do you think could hold their own in movies?
