Alan Tudyk: the unknown movie star
Is 2016 the year that
becomes a household name?
It’s a bit of a surprise that he isn’t already.
After all, he has appeared on our Most Valuable Players list multiple times:
- 2013 The Measured Circle’s Box Office MVPs
- 2012 The Measured Circle’s Box Office MVPs
- 2011 The Measured Circle’s Box Office MVPs
He is on 815 (!) reader created lists at IMDb.
Still, despite having significant roles in some of the most popular movies of the year, I think most people couldn’t name him.
Oh, it’s different for geeks…we know him from Serenity and Dollhouse, just to name two.
Why might this year be different?
Star Wars is the crossover geekshow of all time (although there are others, certainly). I think most people have heard of, well, just about everybody in a Star Wars movie.
Voicing the lead droid character, K-2SO ought to do it. 🙂
He will also easily make the MVP list this year, with Rogue One: A Star Wars Story , Moana, and Zootopia. It’s possible his movies will make a combined dogro (domestic gross) of over one billion dollars this year, a rare feat (only achieved by five MVPs in 2015).

When you shop at AmazonSmile, half a percent of your purchase price on eligible items goes to a non-profit you choose. It will feel just like shopping at Amazon: you’ll be using your same account. The one thing for you that is different is that you pick a non-profit the first time you go (which you can change whenever you want)…and the good feeling you’ll get. Shop ’til you help! By the way, it’s been interesting lately to see Amazon remind me to “start at AmazonSmile” if I check a link on the original Amazon site. I do buy from AmazonSmile, but I have a lot of stored links I use to check for things.
