This foreign born B+ list actor was fired from a very hit pay cable show because his acting was so awful.
Apparently all those acting classes after he was fired paid off though because he is about to be launched on the world as the lead of a set to be released big box office hit and the co-lead of a superhero movie.
Fired from: Game of Thrones
Big box office hit: The Transporter Refueled
Superhero movie: “Deadpool”/Ajax
