Appearing in a hugely successful movie doesn't necessarily make an actor a huge draw though, especially when it's a real "brand" film. Neither Elijah Wood nor Viggo Mortensen are huge draws despite playing lead characters in the LoTR trilogy, and I don't think that anyone sees Martin Freeman as a huge draw after The Hobbit. Same for the three main Harry Potter actors. Jennifer Lawrence is only considered a huge draw now that she's proven to have had success outside of the Hunger Games franchise.
