If you’re a trucker, you have some good- and very famous- company! Here are six celebrities who drove a big rig before they hit the big time:
Elvis- Foreshadowing his future status as “The King,” Elvis used to drive a truck for the Crown Electric Company.
Richard Pryor- On his way to comedic stardom, Richard Pryor drove a truck for a catering company.
Chevy Chase- With a name like Chevy, it seems like destiny: Before finding fame on shows such as Saturday Night Live, Chevy Chase drove- you guessed it- a truck.
Sean Connery- Before his name became synonymous with a certain James Bond, Sean Connery once drove a truck just like his dad.
Liam Neeson- Now he’s fighting every bad guy imaginable in the movies, but as a younger man he was driving a truck around his native Ireland.
James Cameron- Before steering movies like Titanic and Avatar to blockbuster success, he was steering the wheel of a big rig. Cameron quit his job as a trucker in 1977 after being inspired by the movie Star Wars.
