Since Malcolm in the Middle wrapped up after seven seasons in 2006, Frank Muniz decided to step away from acting to focus on being a full-time race car driver. But in 2009, Muniz suffered terrible head injuries from a crash and had to stop racing. Muniz also became a drummer for the band Kingsoil for two years between 2012 to 2014.
He even toured all over the world with his bandmates. Muniz is now married to his long-time partner Paige Price. The star has dabbled in acting in recent years like in “The Black String” in 2018, and other minor roles in series but nothing compares to the award-winning “Malcolm in the Middle.”
Forever Known as Frodo
Elijah Wood isn't famous because of one role: he's been part of many different projects, like "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind," "Lord of the Rings" and "Green Street Hooligans." He's also appeared in TV series like "Wilfred and Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency."
Not all is lost. Most recently the star appeared in the award-winning series “Yellowjackets” in 2023 and the movie “The Toxic Avenger” in the same year. In 2005 the star founded his own production company called SpectreVision, and he also got into the world of music since he started his very own music label Simian Records.
Megan Fox is perpetually on the list of the most attractive women in Hollywood. But she isn't that successful when it comes to her career. The most well-known of Megan's films are "Transformers" and its sequel. Once the 2nd film was released, Megan quit the project.
No one knows exactly why, but it's said that it happened because of harsh criticism from Michael Bay, the film's director. Anyway, since then, the actress doesn't work much currently. At least not on big projects like “Transformers.” She did however land herself roles in “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” franchise in 2014 and 2016, and let’s not forget “Jennifer’s Body” in 2009.
Still Stuck in Sin City
Her part in James Cameron's Dark Angel proved to be a breakthrough role for Jessica Alba, and the role of an exotic dancer in Robert Rodriguez's "Sin City" became her most famous work.
Later, Jessica played in some romantic comedies, the action film "Machete," and the thriller "The Killer Inside Me," which received many positive reviews but still wasn't as good as "Sin City." Some sources say that the star took a step back from acting due to health concerns, but it should also be noted that she started her own line of personal care products. In 2012 Alba launched The Honest Company which is valued at around $500 million today.
Out of Shape
Fraser was once a Hollywood A-Lister, first, he appeared in a few small roles, but it wasn't until his role in "George of the Jungle" in 1997 that Fraser had his first big box office success. Unfortunately, his action movie roles' placed such severe physical demands on him.
They led to injuries that forced Fraser to undergo many different surgical procedures, including a partial knee replacement. The star did make a beautiful comeback in 2022 with his role in “The Whale.” He even earned himself his first Oscar for his performance in this flick. Who knows what other tricks the star may have up his sleeve?
