A lot of the ones off the top of my head have been said. **** you Nicholas Cage.
Everyone in the Fast and the Furious.
Owen Wilson. (Die.)
Ben Stiller. (Die.)
Vinny Chase (Adrien something?)
I think it's ok for an actor to play a somewhat similar character frequently if they do it well and make it believable.
Edit: Oh Jeremy Renner. He is still living off Hurt Locker. Terrible. Takes me out of the experience in every movie he's in.
The crying scene from oh-so-long-ago MYSTIC PIZZA (1988 is it possible)
Crowd in theater was laughing. /thread
Every porn movie actor/actress........before the sex.
He doesn't come across as the regular jerkoff Hollywood actor type. Makes some bad movies but , yeah ok, stays out of trouble,
The cane_shaking is heavy in this thread.
I didn't know everyone on this board also works for the Academy.
I'll just add that this weekend I saw the first half of a 2000 movie, The Gift, on Netflix. Now I know there's a good reason I had never heard of this Billy Bob Thornton (good actor, btw) written piece of sh*te.
The only name I knew would be in it was Cate Blanchett. And one-by-one the big names kept popped out as the train wreck revealed itself.
Giovanni Ribisi was so bad it was mesmerizing (playing an unbalanced hick mechanic), Keanu Reeves genuinely laughable as an abusive pickup truck driving bigot, Hilary Swank as abused white trash (I know, a stretch for her), Katie Holmes as a snotty rich girl, Greg Kinnear the humble fellow with a good heart - this movie began taking on a life of its own as a personal insult to me. Throw in the special effects for Cate's psychic abilities (these effects were pulled off with the panache of a 1970s Sesame Street episode, one second Snuffaluffagus is there and next POOF no Snuffaluffagus! Where'd he go?)
Thanks for letting me vent.
I agree with most this thread, but it's too easy to pick on Keanu. Jack Nicholson hasn't taken acting very seriously since becoming a Hollywood heavyweight, he damn near ruins The Departed. Good to call out DeNiro, too - outside of a few great roles he sucks.
Christian Bale and Daniel Day Lewis shame all these names.
I haven't seen it, but I heard 'The Paperboy' is being touted as the last 'Gia'.
By the way, another actor that I can't stand is Shia Lebeouf. His name alone irritates me. Combine that with his acting, and I want to bite his face off.
Keeyanu Reeves (Warfish loves this guy)
Will Smith in everything
Anyone in a Zombie movie
Bonnie Franklin - One Day at a Time
Skippy Handelman - Family Ties
Alice the Waitress
Watch True Blood. 10 minutes of one episode is enough. Every single person on the show sucks, except the hot red head.
And she can't act either. Her hotness overcomes her horrid acting.
Anna Paquin as Sookie Stackhouse may be the worst acting I've ever seen. That show sucks horribly, it makes me cringe when my wife watches it. And this is all despite most of the women being pretty effing hot.
"they took my fumb, Chaa-lie!!!!!!"
