Before They Were Stars: Viola Davis in “Kate and Leopold”

Hugh Jackman and Viola Davis can currently be seen acting together in the acclaimed Prisoners, and they share some pretty powerful and gripping scenes. It’s amazing to think that the first time these two actors ever crossed paths, their exchange consisted of: “I’m suggesting you pick the poop up now”. If you don’t remember the 2001 romantic comedy, Kate & Leopold, Hugh Jackman played a 19th-century Duke who time travelled to modern-day New York to romance Meg Ryan. At the 1:10 mark of this trailer, you’ll see a then-unknown Viola Davis playing a police officer who scolds Jackman for not picking up his dog’s poop.
