Breaking Bad may now be off the air (RIP), but the AMC powerhouse was just the tip of the iceberg in terms of the quality that TV has had to offer as of late, and some of Hollywood's biggest stars seem to agree. More actors and actresses than ever seem to be making the jump from the big screen to the small screen, with roles in projects ranging from HBO dramas to network comedies.

While Kerry Washington has been fixing everybody and everything D.C. can throw at her for the past three seasons, stars like Matthew McConaughey, Halle Berry, and Meg Ryan have only recently jumped into TV, joining a whole host of other Hollywood staples looking for a (potentially) more long-term gig.
