4. Mike Vitar


Mike Vitar played Benjamin Franklin “Benny the Jet” Rodriguez in the 1990s hit baseball-based movie The Sandlot. He went on to land other roles in movies such as Chicago Hope, Brooklyn Bridge, NYPD Blue and many others. But after his roles in the big screens, Vitar became a firefighter for the Los Angeles Fire Department.

He was once honored for helping rescue fellow firefighters when a roof of a house they were trying to save from a fire break out collapsed on them. He was, however, later charged for severely injuring another man after getting into a physical altercation on Halloween in 2015. Fortunately for him, he avoided jail time and had to pay a fine of $2,000.
