I dunno about Kristen Stewart... she's so awful. I don't see Pattinson doing much either. Lautner is a given to be forgotten. Oh well, only one I care about is Kendrick, whom seems to be doing well for herself.
 
I quite like Elisabeth Shue, wonder why she never made it.
Well, she is the new leading lady on CSI. We'll see how that goes.

He's currently the star of one of CBS's highest-rated shows. That's a strange way to disappear.

Person of Interest, btw.
He's a godlike badass in that show.


Also, sidenote, Elijah Wood just popped up in the oddest place imaginable. Season 10 of Red vs. Blue.

I was enjoying this thread until people seriously started arguing Eddie freakin' Murphy fit the definition the OP listed. How old are some of you? Jesus.
That's what's so sad about him. He's been bad for so long that an entire generation only knows him as someone who stars in awful bombs and not a God-Tier 80/9ss comedian.

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

His career stalled immediately after 48 Hours. All those other huge '80s hits? Lies. We've always been at war with Eastasia.
 
In the case of Chris Tucker I think it's more likely that those movies made him rich and he's fine with not having to work for a living anymore.

I think that's a different situation than some of these actors that only had one hit that made them famous, but that they didn't necessarily made a ton of money on (or they blew it all) and then spent the rest of their career getting by by doing shitty roles.
Then the entire cast of Friends and Seinfeld should be taken off as well because they are rich as fuck.
 
Was everwhere. After scott pilgrim... not so much.


And looking at imdb I guess shes still getting work. I dont remember her in anything after jessie and the pussycats though.

(Rachel leigh cook)

Same with former it girl estella warren.
 
Some dumb bitch who got a bunch of people killed so she could pack more luggage.
Actually, your answer was better...
1. Really disrespectful
2. It wasn't her luggage it was sound and video equipment. Aaliyah's bodyguard and friend Scotty Gallin also told the film crew there was too much but the film crew demanded everything be packed on. At no point was this Aaliyah demanding anything.
3. Pilot wasn't 100% sober either.
 
Brittany Murphy is the one I always think of--Clueless, then Just Married, then very little after that. Then she died at like age 32. Really sad shit.
She did a lot of voice over work for cartoons (King of the Hill being the most well known), 8 Mile, that Michael Douglas movie with the line "I'll never tell", Sin City, a ton of romantic comedies before and after Just Married.
 
Just looked up Cuba's IMDB. Okay, these are all within the last five years...










Anyone want to make a movie with Cuba holding a gun? I think he'd be down with that.

Slater, Woods, Kilmer, Liotta, Keitel! Is there like a washed-up actor sewing circle these guys all belong to?

Dude... I'm gonna have to watch all these films!

These all look amazing. Val Kilmer's face is an egregiously horrible Photoshop job.

I can't *believe* these lazy developers keep making file sizes so damn large. Btw, how does technology work?
Came to post Casper Van Dien.

It's a shame, too, because he absolutely rocked in Starship Troopers. No, he's not the best actor; but he fit that role wonderfully. I would have enjoyed seeing him in other things.
