While it is true fame rises and falls, some celebrities bungee jumped to the bottom and never came back up. What once looked to be promising careers became “oh yeah, I remember them!” Below are five well-known actors whom we haven’t seen in a while. We think their days are done, but hey, Hollywood is a strange place and crazy things have been known to happen.
Remember him? He was the new “it” guy for a hot minute. He starred in Closer and Children of Men, and was destined for greatness. He was handsome, brooding and very manly. Many thought he would get the role as James Bond, but after it was offered to Daniel Craig, Owen’s light faded.
Brendan Fraser was a very popular 90’s movie star. School Ties and The Mummy were his claim to fame. However, since those roles, he hasn’t been on anyone’s radar for a long time. Hopefully he saved his pennies.
Haley Joel Osment
He saw dead people! Isn’t that enough to keep him in the limelight? Osment was discovered while walking through an IKEA with his mom back in 1992. Who knew IKEA was also a place where dreams are made! He went on to star in The Sixth Sense and A.I. but after that, we never really heard from him again. He graduated from NYU (yes, he is that old) and now does smaller, lower budget films.
Sean William Scott
Stifler! Everyone remembers their favorite character from the American Pie franchise. He was the cute dumb, lovable guy. Scott went on to star in Dude, Where’s my Car, which, let’s be honest, wasn’t necessarily quality cinema. He never really was cast in more serious roles and the public lost interest in his silly persona. Fortunately for him, he has done numerous voice overs for successful animated movies.
Let’s be honest, Ice was probably the guy every girl really wanted in Top Gun and he was the oh-so-hot bad guy in Heat, not to mention his portrayal of Jim Morrison in The Doors. It seemed his career was on fire, but bad on-set behavior can only go so far. When you’re a dick, no one wants to deal with you, even if you are the hot guy.
