As an actor’s career kicks off, it becomes increasingly important to pick the right movies. After all, committing to a single project for months on end means a star is often unable to sign onto any other roles. Such might have been the case for Ewan McGregor.

McGregor’s first movie was 1994 comedy-drama Being Human, a notorious box office flop. However, he didn’t have long to wait for his breakthrough role.
