    What's The Rock up to these days? Seems all roles he'd be perfect for are going to some guy named Dwayne

    Surprised Jami Gertz's career in movies didnt kick on after Twister.
    She seemed to be managing the transition from teen roles in 16 Candles, Lost Boys etc into older roles.

    Net worth of around $1.5billion

    Looks like he has gone back to TV to try and kick start his career again with Young Rock.

    Possibly a bit early to be adding him to this list, but Armie Hammer's Hollywood career appears to be effectively over.

    Weinstein probably has a better chance of making a comeback

    Yeah, the amount of romantic lead parts you get offered tend to dry up when you reveal yourself as a latent cannibal pervert.

    He must be in pole position for the remake of Silence of the Lambs though...

    what did Arnie do?

    A belief in gender identity involves a level of faith as there is nothing tangible to prove its existence which, as something divorced from the physical body, is similar to the idea of a soul. - Colette Colfer

    That report has some great lines.

    “He has never eaten human flesh, he has never drank blood, he has never cut off a toe, he has never locked anybody in a cage, or whatever else is in these crazy messages. These messages definitely shouldn’t be taken literally – even if he did text them,” says a source close to Hammer,

    According to wiki his movies all flopped outside Australia?

    I do remember him being everywhere for a while around young Einstein and reckless Kelly

    What happened to Brandon Routh? He was the spitting image of Christopher Reeve and was great in Superman Returns. The movie was great and did ok qt the box office. He was dashing and should have had a career as a handsome romantic lead and action star. The franchise got a reboot with Henry Cavill and Routh hasn't been getting great parts since. He was supposed to star as John Clark in a movie version of the Tom Clancy novel Without Remorse then it fell through..

    Yahoo Serious, theres a blast from the past. There was a good bit of publicity behind Young Einstein, I remember him appearing on Kenny Live publicising it. Not sure how well it did in Ireland/UK.

    It and Reckless Kelly were quite popular here on video as I recall.

    James Woods. Probably better known nowadays for his proTrump tweets than acting career. Shame as hes a good actor.

    John Cusack. The first I time heard his name mentioned in years was last year when he was tweeting some tinfoil hat conspiracy theories about 5G.

    The Cell was the last film I saw him in, with Samuel L Jackson. Released in 2016 but was actually made 2 years earlier.
    It's a wonder he isn't doing any TV work like everyone else.

    Cell is an extremely poor film,Cusack looks strange in it, whether Botox or actual surgery ,I'm not sure

    eh? He has been working non-stop for 4 decades, about to go into his 5th decade with rarely a break

    1980's - 14 movies
    1990's - 22 movies
    2000's - 16 movies
    2010's - 27 movies (wtf)

    It seems like ever since he called out the Israelis' for some attacks on the West Bank, he's only been offered the likes of direct to Netflix type stuff, but he hasn't stopped working, far from it.
