2014's best commencement speeches: Puff Daddy, Charlie Day, and more -- Video

Commencement speeches can be boring. Just when you think you’re done with lectures, here’s one more person ranting to you about how to live your life as you wait to receive your diploma. But if that person is It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’s Charlie Day or Sandra Bullock, listening to “follow your heart” becomes much more enjoyable.

Michelle Obama, Jay Leno, and Forest Whitaker were a few of the bigger names lending their wisdom to graduating classes this year, but Day, Bullock, Ed Helms, and Puff Daddy stood out with their humor-tinged but still heartfelt talks. »

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia actor Charlie Day gave the surprise hit commencement speech of the graduation season when he visited his alma mater, Merrimack College, on Sunday to talk to students on their big day. The actor was first given an honorary doctorate, which he joked about, saying that Dr. Charlie Day "sounded like some sort of club DJ." However, he also opened up about his struggles as an actor and writer after graduating college and how he was faced with a tough decision when he was offered a role on a pilot (Life on a Stick) while developing what would eventually become his hit FX show with his friends. "Do I do Life on a Stick? Or do I make another bet on myself? And this time, my friends, too," Charlie recalled. "Do I make no money?" He then encouraged students to take those scary risks as they enter the working world. »
