You know Matthew Fox best from his starring roles in one of two hit television shows: Party of Five and Lost. In the teen drama Party of Five, Matthew Fox played Charlie, the oldest son forced into the role of patriarch for his large family after both of their parents are killed in a car accident.
In Lost, Fox played lead Jack Shephard, a doctor who becomes the unwilling leader of a large group of plane crash survivors stranded on a dangerous and mysterious tropical island somewhere in the South Pacific.
Both of these television series were greatly acclaimed and Lost in particular was one of the most popular television shows in the history of television shows. Knowing this, it seems very strange that Matthew Fox has not been able to leverage his two big roles into a more robust career.
Coming from a background that was equal measures pampered and rugged, Fox had not planned to pursue a career in Hollywood. Fox picked up a variety of small, supporting roles from the age of 25, owing much of his early success to his natural charm and indisputably handsome face.
Party of Five was largely driven by a cast of teenagers, with Matthew Fox being one of the only exceptions. Despite initially poor ratings due to being largely ignored by its target audience, the show won a Golden Globe and a great deal of critical acclaim in its first years.
Party of Five would run for six seasons, almost episodes, and it launched major careers for nearly every cast member in the small ensemble drama. Unfortunately, Fox was also an exception to this rule.

The story was much more than it seemed however, as it blended complicated mysteries, science fiction, unique mythologies, coincidental past encounters, philosophical utopias, and eerie conflicts into the otherwise straightforward survival story.
Abrams and his two cowriters, the mystery of the island and its evil smoke monster captured the imagination of the world, earning hundreds of awards and nominations, tens of millions of viewers each episode, and an endless cult following encouraged by the showrunners that speculated on the true nature of the island.
Did the island represent an afterlife, a mass hallucination, or some protracted metaphor for the American dream? The show made household names of J.
Abrams and several other players. Abrams would go on to helm the direction of both the Star Trek reboots and the Star Wars franchise sequel, Episode 7: Yet, Matthew Fox was still unable to get a ticket on the gravy train. After Lost, Fox repeated his magic act of transforming from a leading man in a well-respected primetime television show, back into a supporting character or bit actor.
Yet, the actor has mostly struck out on the silver screen as well.

There were numerous witnesses, but Fox disputes the story. Fox was supposedly trying to get a ride back to his hotel from the woman who was driving a private party bus rented out for a bachelor party. In the second incident, in which information has been more strongly corroborated by police reports, Fox was arrested for a DUI while in the state of Oregon in Despite his reputed disdain for the celebrity lifestyle, Matthew Fox continues to pursue acting.
