There are a lot of stars who completely fell out of the spotlight even though they seemed too big to fail. Whether they leave for personal reasons, medical issues, or just because they want to slow down, it's always interesting to take a look back and see where our old favorite celebrities went.
Dana Carvey managed to become one of the biggest character actors of his time. After getting his big break on Saturday Night Live, Carvey seemed to be headed for success. He had many breakout characters but it all started with the Church Lady, who helped him become a household name.
Around the same time, Carvey and Mike Myers teamed up to create one of the greatest duos of all time, Wayne and Garth from Wayne's World.
Wayne's World first appeared on SNL in 1988, and became the second movie to come out of the hit variety show. The character that Carvey played, Garth, was a fan favorite and people still dress up as him for Halloween.
Despite his success on SNL, in 1993 Carvey decided to move on. NBC network executives were eyeing him as the replacement for David Letterman's job, but that ended up going to Conan O'Brien.
In 1996, Carvey was given his own variety show which helped launch the careers of some other notable comedians, including Steve Carell and Stephen Colbert.
It was in 2002 that his career had a bit of a hiccup. He starred in the comedy Master of Disuise which was a spy-style comedy that was released just one week after his former cast mate Mike Myers's movie Austin Powers in Goldmember. However nothing went as planned...
