Quote from: thecuriousorange on November 26, 2021, 12:30:03 PMSam Worthington was handed a golden ticket with a starring role in Avatar, but was seen in very little else in the decade that followed. At least nothing anywhere near that scale. His generation's Michael Biehn?
Quote from: Brundle-Fly on November 26, 2021, 09:16:48 PMThora Birch's career going down the toilet was rather sad. I know she was never going to compete with her Ghost World (2001) co-star in the glamour stakes but Birch deserved so much more after her nuanced portrayal of Enid from said movie. I was so pleased to see her turn up in The Walking Dead recently(ish).
Quote from: Custard on November 28, 2021, 12:31:31 PMGood nomination. Though what with there being 17 Avatar sequels coming over the next two decades, I guess he'll get another shot
Quote from: dead-ced-dead on November 28, 2021, 12:44:40 PMThis almost never happens - usually Hollywood gives you one shot and you're done - so he must be thanking every day.
Quote from: Brundle-Fly on November 28, 2021, 01:26:28 PMWynona Ryder was also given a second reprieve. TV is good like that.Also, how long has the actor, Brian Cox waited to finally become a proper household name?
Quote from: mothman on November 27, 2021, 06:08:29 PMAt one point - it was certainly true in the nineties - there was always that one actress who was absolutely, definitely going to be the next big thing, take her place in those lofty heights with Julia Roberts and Meg Ryan etc.Julia Ormond. Then Claire Forlani. Then Gretchen Mol. Then Miranda Otto. Alicia Silverstone was in there somewhere. Liv Tyler too. And Linda Fiorentino.

Quote from: Ron Maels Moustache on November 28, 2021, 11:05:31 PMHe surely does fine as a character actor, he's rarely been out of work in forty odd years and can clearly pick and choose his roles, in blockbusters, smaller indie films or TV. Most people of a certain age will recognise him from X-Men 2 if nothing else.Not every actor necessarily wants or needs mega-stardom.
Quote from: Famous Mortimer on November 28, 2021, 11:04:48 PMI'll take "things no male actor has done, ever" for 200, Alex
Quote from: ElTwopo on November 28, 2021, 09:51:43 PMAlso Rebecca De Mornay and Bridget Fonda were pretty big in the early/mid nineties. Maybe I've not been paying attention, but I can't remember seeing them in the last 20 years or so.
Quote from: thecuriousorange on November 29, 2021, 01:12:45 AMAlthough I was never a big fan, I used to assume that Julia Stiles would go on to do more serious awardsy drama stuff, after graduating from High School fare. I also thought Matthew Lillard was surely the next Jim Carrey.
Quote from: AnOrdinaryBoy on November 29, 2021, 12:47:18 AMRick Moranis did, though admittedly his wife dying had a part to play in that choice. So it's not really the same thing at all. Carry on.

Rita Moreno IS undoubtedly a movie star - but as the article explains, also not - not like the "actual" movie stars of the time.

Quote from: lipsink on November 29, 2021, 01:34:45 PMWhat about Christina Ricci? She had a great run as a child star: The Addams Family, Mermaids, Addams Family Values, Casper. Then went into indie movies like The Ice Storm, The Opposite of Sex, Buffalo 66. Then Sleepy Hollow, Monster and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. Seemed like her career was really building momentum and then just...nothing. I'd imagine she's probably been accused of being "difficult" too.
