The Bear has been praised endlessly for its acting, but the cast has also starred in a number of other equally excellent movies and TV shows. The Bear follows Italian beef sandwich shop employees in Chicago attempting to turn the place into a Michelin-star restaurant, and it has quickly become one of the most celebrated shows on TV. Most of The Bear's kitchen staff haven't actually acted before, as they're either total unknowns, have small roles in rap groups, or are actual chefs. Lionel Boyce (Marcus) is best known for being a part of the rap group Odd Future, from which Frank Ocean also hails. Matty Matheson (Fak) is a successful chef and can be found all over YouTube.
