Comedian Dave Chappelle made headlines when he abruptly walked away from his hit Comedy Central TV show and left for South Africa in 2005. Since his conversion to Islam in the late 1990s, Chappelle has taken a hiatus several times for self-reflection and calls his faith "a life-long effort" that now helps him set personal standards.

I don't know why Rick Schroder was mentioned. He's barely a star compared to the rest of the line-up. If you had to force an LDS member in you should have picked Katherine Heigl, at least she's a big star. Although I'm doubtful, after posting all these other stars who changed faiths, you'd ever post a LDS star who left the church such as Katherine Heigl.

Dave Chappelle ... I used to watch him all the time. Interesting, I had no idea he was a follower of Islam. Nor that Richard Gere was a buddhist, a faith (or philosophy in my mind) that has always held my interest. Can't go wrong with promoting peace and happiness with one's self.
