4. Ed Helms
After moving to New York City, Helms split his time between studying at UCB, practicing with sketch comedy groups, and working at a post-production facility, where he borrowed equipment to record the voice-over reel that would land him an agent. Years of working in the New York comedy scene paid off when he landed a role as correspondent on The Daily Show in 2005.
After being hired on The Office the next year and appearing in the smash-hit, The Hangover in 2009, Helms was officially a household name. With The Office coming to an end and The Hangover franchise hopefully coming to a close, we look forward to seeing what projects Helms gets involved in with next.
