Seann William Scott had proved early on that his unique, comedic style worked in film. It clicked in movies like the American Pie franchise, which saw him skyrocket into popularity with teens of the early 2000s. He was able to prove his worth further on, in films such as “Goon”, “Road Trip”, “Dude Where’s My Car?” and so forth, and all he had to do was take care of his rising career.
But then he made a major misstep, appearing in “Movie 43.” This fail of a film saw him fall to the bottom of the list in auditions, and he had to dabble in voice-overs for the “Ice Age” films to remain relevant, awaiting another opportunity to shine.
Cutthroat Island Cost Geena Davis Her Marriage & Career
Perhaps there’s a valid reason why one should avoid having a relationship with workmates, as in Geena Davis’ case. Prior to "Cutthroat Island", she’d done pretty well in "The Fly", "Thelma and Louise", and who could forget the cult classic "Beetlejuice"?
But her pirate-action adventure movie, directed by her husband, Renny Harlin, left in its wake flotsam of wrecked relationships, production bankruptcy, and a sinking career. She later landed leading roles in "Commander in Chief", and a couple more films that very few remember. Many wonder if she’ll ever be able to break the surface again.
Pauly Shore’s Biodome
Pauly Shore charmed his way around Hollywood, with his unusual acting style, and a locution that seemed only he could pull off. Fans were amused by him, always wanting to see more of Shore’s abilities, and he, of course, obliged.
He made regular appearances on MTV’s Spring Break specials, and in theaters, where his shows were constantly sold out. His movies "Encino Man", "Son-in-Law", and "Biodome", too, made high marks. However, Shore made a faulty decision when he went for the hastily scripted "In The Army Now", which disappointed his fans to the max. He hasn’t played a leading role since, nor has he been part of blockbuster movies.
‘I Know Who Killed Me’ Killed Lindsay Lohan’s Career
Like many artists before her that have started strong only to fritter away their earnings and their fame, Lindsay Lohan used to have a sparkling, bright future in acting. She proved she was meant for stardom, in movies like "The Parent Trap" and "Mean Girls", which were both blockbuster hits.
Then fame started to become a burden for her, and she started drinking, partying, and all the rest. First, socially, then out of control, spiraling into dissipation. Her film, "I Know Who Killed Me", true to its title, did her in. But it was more like a ceremonial one, to a career that was already a time bomb ready to explode.
Justin Chatwin in Dragonball
Justin Chatwin is a Canadian actor who was making strides in the States. His role in the film "War of the Worlds" reaped favorable returns. He did well in "The Invisible" and the Showtime series "Shameless", but then he rushed into a movie that nearly ruined his career.
Chatwin had all the right intentions in taking on the lead role in "Dragonball: Evolution". The Dragonball franchise is close to the hearts of all those who grew up watching the cartoons before school. However, the adaptation turned out to be a wreck and is now set as a standard of what a terrible movie is. Chatwin will be lucky if he’s able to restore his career after this mess.
