One of the most recognizable names in women’s fashion didn’t start out in that business. She was actually a pairs figure skater, competing on the national level with partner James Stewart, but she quit after they failed to get a spot on the Olympic team and went into fashion design instead. Her evening wear and wedding gowns are legendary, but she still loves skating — she has designed some iconic costumes for Olympic medal winners like Nancy Kerrigan and Michelle Kwan.
It’s hard to believe that this comedian has been anywhere else but on television, for Emmy award-winning shows like “Brooklyn 99.” But before he gave us something to laugh about, he was a pro football player giving his opponents something to cry about — he was a defensive tackle. After four years in the pros with four different teams, he hung up his cleats and picked up a microphone and scored a win for comedy.
