Great Actors/Actresses Who Appear in Shit Films

Many actors and actresses seem to nowadays be taking the work they’re offered just for a paycheck and nothing more. I find it hard to believe that the paycheck for some of the horrendous shit that Hollywood has been spewing out recently would even be worth it though.

Here’s a list of brilliant actors and actresses who are now wasted in completed and utter garbage.

(SOME OF THE PEOPLE ON THIS LIST ARE NOW DECEASED, NO DISRESPECT IS MEANT BY THIS LIST)

  1. Robert De niro
  2. Al Pacino
  3. Gary Oldman
  4. Jodie Foster
  5. Cuba Gooding Jr.
  6. Edward Norton
  7. Crispin Glover
  8. Mel Gibson
  9. Winona Ryder
  10. Mickey Rourke
  11. Val Kilmer
  12. Halle Berry
  13. Nicolas Cage
  14. Christopher Walken
  15. River Phoenix
  16. Leonardo DiCaprio
  17. Johnny Depp
  18. Juliette Lewis
  19. Aaron Paul
  20. Nick Stahl
  21. Harvey Keitel
  22. Tom Hardy
  23. Tom Hanks
  24. Philip Seymour Hoffman
  25. Jack Nicholson
  26. Jill Clayburgh
  27. Matthew Barry
  28. Mark Ruffalo

Again, this list in no way complete, and I will continue to add to it, as I watch more shit so that you do not have to waste your time doing so. Interesting to note, there’s a slight pattern in the list – DRAMA/THRILLER to COMEDY. Actors who should never have crossed over, if they did not have the chops to pull it off. (Some actors learned from their mistakes and never did it again, others continued to do it even though they obviously knew and felt deep inside how truly bad it was!).

Hollywood is unforgiving, it chews people up, spits them out, says “fuck you,” and then ropes in the next “new thing”. When he/she looses their looks, regardless of acting abilities, they find it hard to find good work – it’s a sad thing, but there is a solution – stop working in Hollywood!

Plenty of work in independent films exists, and most times they are more hard-hitting than the shit that Hollywood continues to force-feed us.

(For a very good and recent example, take “Spotlightwhich just won best movie of the year at the 2016 Oscars. Now, the film itself deals with a very good subject, and it handles it relatively well. But you can just see Mark Ruffalo – who is usually amazing – just going through the motions for the sake of it. Michael Keaton does the same, but we expect that from him. )

Another very interesting side-note is the transfer from adult to children’s cinema…and not moving from it! (Johnny Depp is quite known for this, as is Tom Hanks), and once again I blame comedy and Hollywood… because America truly feels the need to dumb things down so that “people get it” without forcing an audience to truly think for themselves and appreciate the moment for what it is.
