Show business isn't for everybody. These are the celebrities who did some great things after they walked away from the limelight.

Frankie Muniz became a race car driver after his fame. In 2008, he said, “I don’t want to sound conceited but I don’t think there has been an actor or celebrity-turned-racecar driver that has made it as high up on the race car circuit as I have. So I don’t think there’s anyone who can keep up with me. And that’s just me being honest.”

I looked up the stats, and you're right. Both of their stats kind of suck, but Newman's record is a bit better than Muniz's.

On another note, quite a few former NFLers have been successful in the commercial real estate business. Roger Staubach comes to mind. He has a veritable real estate empire around the Dallas, Tx, area.

A lot of others must have taken bad advice that lead them into some really horrible ventures. Failed barbecue joints, car dealerships, and so on. Many, many former athletes have gone broke investing in restaurants. A famous name can't compensate for mediocre food for long.
