The small screen is the new big screen.
With so many great TV shows out there, more and more movie stars are making the jump to what was previously considered a lesser medium.
But try telling that now to Viola Davis... or Matthew McConaghey... or Billy Bob Thornton... or any of the well-known names listed below.
Here's a rundown of actors and actresses you may have first known for their film roles; but who you now welcome into your living room on a weekly basis:
Theroux is dominating The Leftovers now, but formerly he could be seen quite frequently on the big screen, including films such as Mulholland Dr., American Psycho, Megamind and Wanderlust.
Before signing on for True Detective, Farrell had a 20 year cinema career, starring in such favorites as In Bruges, Minority Report, Alexander, Saving Mr. Banks and Winter's Tale.
This isn't Davis' first television appearance at all, but she's better known for her movie roles in The Help, Ender's Game and Disturbia. It looks like she'll be one of the many successful actors to field both movies and TV.
Vaughn signed on to True Detective after years of successfully traversing comedy blockbusters like Wedding Crashers, The Break-Up, Dodgeball, Old School and the movie that put him on the map, Swingers. He's so money.
Schreiber was in the Scream series, A Walk on the Moon, The Sum of All Fears and Salt among many others, but he was nominated for a Golden Globe for his incredible performance as Ray Donovan for Showtime.
McAdams has made a name for herself in high end romantic comedies, including Mean Girls, The Notebook and The Time Traveler's Wife, and she also starred in Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris.
