Like 'Saturday Night Live,''The Daily Show' has become a breeding ground for comedic movie stars. But no matter how funny you are, appearing on a fake news program for roughly five minutes a week won't skyrocket you to above-the-title roles in major studio comedies. But it'll get your foot in the door. Like ex-correspondent Steve Carell in 'Bruce Almighty' and 'Anchorman,'Rob Corddry has chewed up the scenery (and was far and away the best thing about) movies like 'The Heartbreak Kid' and 'What Happens in Vegas.'

Now, like ex-correspondent Ed Helms in 'The Hangover,' Corddry has his first by-committee starring role. In the rather awesomely titled 'Hot Tub Time Machine,' Corddry bromances the night away with John Cusack, Craig Robinson and Clarke Duke as a foursome transported back to 1986 via a magical ski lodge Jacuzzi.
