Tony Danza – From Taxi to teacher

In the 80’s, he was a professional boxer before he switched gears and became an actor, starring in Taxi and later, Who’s the Boss?. While this may seem drastic, it’s probably not as drastic as his latest venture. After all, it takes a lot of nerve to become a teacher after working in show business for some time. Luckily, his foray into the world of academics was documented in a reality show, Teach: Tony Danza.

Gary Dourdan – From CSI: Crime Scene Investigation to DJ

Gary Dourdan is easily recognizable as one of the stars of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, the long-running and very popular crime series from CBS. Unfortunately, his character was killed off in season 8 when he was fired from the show because of his substance abuse problem. After that, he spiraled out of control for a while, getting arrested for a DUI and later breaking his girlfriend’s nose, for which he spent some time in jail and had to undergo court-ordered drug treatment. He ended up filing for bankruptcy in 2012. Since then, he’s been working part-time as a DJ and occasionally takes on acting jobs.
