FRANKIE MUNIZ


Most people probably thought this child actor couldn’t get a job in Hollywood after being the star in Malcolm in the Middle, but he signed a two-year contract as a driver with Jensen Motorsport. Muniz also had a short gig as the drummer for Kingsfoil, a pop-rock group in Pennsylvania. “It’s my focus 1,000 percent right now. I want to be the best drummer I can be for the band and for me.”

Shaun Weiss


In July 2017, the actor, who got his first taste of fame playing goalie Goldberg in the “Mighty Ducks” franchise, was sentenced to spend 150 days in a Los Angeles County jail. Weiss’ manager previously confirmed the news to Page Six, saying that the “Ducks” star’s sentence already began, and he remained optimistic about his life after he serves his jail time. “Hopefully when he gets out, he will go to rehab so he can stay sober,” the former child star’s rep said at the time. According to TMZ, Weiss was arrested for stealing $151 in merchandise from Fry’s Electronics earlier in July. Two days after his arrest, he reportedly pled no contest to petty theft and was issued the 150-day sentence. It was the actor’s second petty theft offense. In addition to the “Mighty Ducks” franchise, which lasted three movies, Weiss previously was featured in “Heavyweights,” “Freaks and Geeks,” “The King of Queens” and “The Tony Danza Show.”
