Quote from: dissolute ocelot on December 02, 2021, 09:21:20 AMBut then, Adam Deacon? He was in Kidulthood and sequels, but now seems trapped in low-budget British movies like The Bromley Boys and The Intent 2: The Come Up and a 2021 appearance on Doctors. Will Poulter progressed from Narnia to stuff like Maze Runner and a small role in Midsommar, but definitely isn't Tom Hardy or even Daniel Poulter. Jack O'Connell from Skins and This Is England likewise.
Quote from: Ron Maels Moustache on December 02, 2021, 09:07:50 AMSpeaking of Homeland (which apparently was still going up till last year! Who knew?), Murray's co-star on that Mandy Patinkin never really ascended to huge stardom following his breakout role in The Princess Bride, but again I think he might be another actor who does their best work on stage. He's certainly not done a huge deal of note outside of Homeland film or TV wise.Speaking of The Princess Bride, Cary Elwes is an actor who seemed primed for hugeness but then it didn't really happen. He's worked steadily but mainly guest spots and supporting roles.
Quote from: Keebleman on December 02, 2021, 01:02:32 AMBekim Fehmiu of The Adventurers, Toralv Maurstad of Song of Norway, both of them foreigners in Hollywood flops. No second chance permitted.Going even further back, there was the 'Man of Mystery' (that was how he was billed on the posters), Turhan Bey. But whether Universal genuinely regarded him as star material even of the Lugosi and Chaney Jr level is open to question.
QuoteThe actor worked at WWE from 2008 to 2009 as a member of the creative team before becoming a producer and director in 2010. ..."There was this show called Tough Enough and they tried to bring it back. Stone Cold was the judge," Freddie told Chris Van Vliet on Insight with Chris Van Vliet."There was a mom that wanted to be a wrestler and she said she was doing it for her kids. Steve Austin said, 'That's bullshit.'"He said, 'You know how many times I won Father of the Year?' He put a goose egg up. "I was watching that show in the writer's room. I stood up and I walked to Gorilla. I gave Vince [McMahon] my two weeks and I said, 'I'm trying to win Father of the Year, man, I can't work here any more' and he said, 'What? Talk to me after the show.'"Freddie went on to say that he ended up talking to Vince's daughter Stephanie McMahon afterwards who told him that he was about to be made Head Writer of WWE SmackDown."I was like, 'Look, you know I love you guys, but I'm a dad and I'm out,'" Freddie added. "That was that. I quit and I never looked back."

Quote from: Bad Ambassador on December 03, 2021, 10:56:23 AMHe was the runner-up to Edward Norton for The Incredible Hulk, even though he's about a decade older. He's worked consistantly in TV though, with a seven-season run in Californication, followed by Aquarius and the X-Files revival, and in the last six years has released three albums and four novels.
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: holyzombiejesus on December 03, 2021, 07:45:33 PMAlso see Micky Rourke. Think he only managed 3 decent/ successful films during his comeback before slipping back in to utter dross.Fairuza Balk was hotly tipped at one time, wasn't she?
Quote from: Famous Mortimer on December 04, 2021, 03:03:10 AMTerry FarrellI know she did several seasons of successful TV, and she had a few starring roles in movies (Hellraiser 3, Legion), it never quite worked out for her.
Quote from: Ron Maels Moustache on December 04, 2021, 11:41:24 AMRourke sounds like he was a nightmare to work with once he got famous again, I think word must've got around as the big parts started drying up again fairly sharpish.

Nowadays, with a decent action "look" and comedy experience, she'd be a low-level Marvel person, set for life.
