Some actors take decades to break into the business, while others simply walk through the door and land the part. Stage performer and movie star Tom Hulce certainly falls into the latter category. His first ever acting gig came on Broadway, starring opposite Anthony Perkins – evidence that natural ability can sometimes trump life experience. From then on, Hulce appeared in cinema classics such as Animal House, Dominick and Eugene, and of course, Amadeus. However, since the mid-’90s, Hulce has practically vanished from our screens. So, what happened? Well, the reason for his disappearance is interesting to say the least…

He may have wanted to be a singer when he was younger, but Tom Hulce likely had no regrets when he decided instead to pursue an acting career. Indeed, Hulce more than proved his worth in the thespian world, appearing in some of the most popular movies of the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s.
