Mike "The Miz" Mizanin
Outta My Way, I'm Moving In: Tips for Getting into the Real World Philadelphia 2004 - 2005 (TV Show)
Reality television and professional wrestling are two time-honored routes into an acting career, but it's unusual for one man to succeed at both. After first gaining attention in 2001 as a cast member of the long-running reality series "The Real World," Mizanin appeared regularly on that show's competition-themed spinoff "Real World/Road Rules Challenge." During this period, Mizanin created a wrestling persona, a brash loudmouth called The Miz, which he debuted in the Ultimate Pro Wrestling league before moving to the larger WWE in 2004 via a competition series called "Tough Enough." The Miz became one of WWE's biggest stars, including stints as the league's World Champion.
