10 Former Nickelodeon Stars Who Made It Big

There’s a lot of hullabaloo about former Disney kid stars who try to make it as adults, with former Mouseketeers like Justin, Xtina, and Britney cited as examples of ones who were able to parlay their child stardom into bona fide grownup careers. But what about that other outlet for kids’ television, Nickelodeon? Here are a couple of Nick stars who have also transitioned nicely into adult acting work.

      Um, what about Ryan Reynolds? He was on a show called Fifteen that aired on Nickelodeon back in 1990-ish… :)

      I wish all of these shows were still on TV.

      Also, I like the little Related Posts section! I can’t remember if it’s new or not, but still, a compliment is always nice

      What about Alanis Morissette on “You Can’t Do That On Television”

      Making it big is a bit of a stretch, no?

      That Mike O’Malley guy was born in Boston (like me), raised in the same NH town as me and graduated from the same college as me. I know all this because my mother points it out every time she sees him in a commercial… she’s mucho impressed by him… I’m not so much.
