Forest Whitaker

Academy Award-winning actor Forest Whitaker earned a full football scholarship to California State Polytechnic University, Pomona for his efforts on the field. Unfortunately (or fortunately, if you ask Hollywood), his sports career did not last long. A debilitating back injury prevented him from contributing to the team, leading Whitaker to change his major to music. —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photo by Alberto E. Rodriguez/Getty Images)
