Movies Good Actors In Terrible Movies

I hate when good actors star in terrible movies. Who do you think is the worst when it comes to this?

Nicolas Cage has been in some dumb movies lately. Knowing was terrible and I heard Next was bad too (I avoided it luckily).

Then there was Sean Connery who had one bad movie after another until he finally retired from acting. Apparently he was considered for Morpheus in The Matrix and also Gandalf in Lord of the Rings and turned them both down. Instead he did stupid movies like "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen." Oops.

Which actors do you you consider good that you'd say have picked some terrible movies lately?

I have to agree with Nicholas Cage's latest ones, they have been god damn awful. Pierce Brosnan in Mama Mia (I did not watch this out of choice), but he went from an awesome bond, to absolute crap.


Sally Twit
Samuel L Jackson in Snakes On A Plane. What was the man thinking? Also, Morgan Freeman in Evan Almighty. I bet he regretted that one!

Jack Black's entire filmography.

Tropic Thunder being the only exception.

All these movies you guys keep calling terrible, I thought were good movies, and so I disagree. (but then, it has to be a pretty crappy movie for me not to like it.) What I also hate is actors who play in a movie that isn't of the genre they are best suited for. Robin Williams, my favourite actor, played in this one suspense movie, and I thought it was horrible. Robin Williams just does not scream sick and twisted, dark manic bad guy. He could play a good crazy bad guy. But he's just not a dark person.

Haha, Tropic Thunder is the only one I hated.

And I think Nicolas Cage did well in Bangkok Dangerous. (So much that I made my porn star name Dangcock Bangerous. It's copyrighted so don't try to steal it!))

Sorry Keanu! This sneeze blew it for you. =/

YouTube - Keanu Reeves - the worst actor ever

Aneurysm? Or did he get punched in the face by Harry Potter in his cloak of invisibility?

Every great actors/actresses will make at least one terrible movie, sometimes great actors/actresses like to take risks.

Some of my favorite actors have made bad movies, yes even Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Cruise have.

It's a shame sometimes, but you just forget it and move on.
