    That kid that plays Lily on Modern Family is atrocious. She is so bad that it's funny.

    Do you remember when Oisin was a kid in Fair City?

    Nicholas Cage.

    Brilliant in Raising Arizona. Utterly awful in pretty much everything else he’s ever been in.

    And still he's so enjoyable to watch.

    Actors who’ve stopped acting. Like De Niro. He just comes over, does his Italian gangster shtick and leaves.

    Charlton Heston

    He starred in loads of good films but he has only one facial expression - constipated.

    John Wayne, wooden and typecast, never understood his popularity.

    That scene where the do his walk in The Birdcage is gas.

    Presence, dear boy presence. Watch The Searchers to see why.

    Keanu Reeves in Dangerous Liasions; not helped by the fact he’s surrounded by top of their respective games Glenn Close, John Malkovich, and Michelle Pfeiffer amongst others (incl. Peter Capaldi, best known as Malcom Tucker). It’s a fantastic film with some very fine performances, which is occasionally interrupted by Keanu in full-on Bill & Ted mode.

    The lad that played Luke was just as bad.

    Didn't take long for the thread to descend to the ridiculous. Nick is an oscar winner, and was nominated in another year.

    Should have won an oscar for Con Air:):)
    No-one else could deliver that immortal line - put the bunny back in the box.

    The thing about Nicolas Cage is he knows how to make an entrance

    I've never figured out Colm Meanys appeal albeit I've not seen him in anything in recent years, perhaps that in itself says it all. Some pretty dreadful performances in equally dreadful films but whilst not a film, his performances generally in Star Trek Deep space nine was just appalling where he played the token Irish character chief O Brien, just awful cringe enducing stuff. Seems the snapper was pretty much a one hit wonder.

    Is maith an scáthán súil charad.

    Cameron Diaz is a really bad actress. She has had the odd decent performance but has the ability to single handedly ruin a movie with her "acting".

    Cocaine's a helluva drug.

    Cage is a good actor whose early career proves this, it's simply that (IIRC) he has had financial and tax issues that necessitated him saying yes to pretty much any job that crossed his desk. But unlike similar Z-movie, former stars like Bruce Willis, rather than act like it's all beneath him, Cage just goes for broke and channels some crazy energy.

    Casper Van Dien.

    Won't hear a bad word about Nic Cage though. No matter how low he sinks, he really gives it his all. So many terrible movies that are strangely compelling due to his unhinged performance.

    Can't remember the name but watched one recently where his dead wife was reincarnated in his girlfriend's teenage daughters body. It was so unbelivably awful, yet brilliant, due to his unhinged performance.

    Luke was atrocious. I thought the same of the girl who played Lily, especially at the beginning, but I recently watched it all again from start to finish, I grew to dislike her less as it went on, thought she was doing ok by the end.

    That reminds me of a quote attributed to John Gielgud:
    "You can be good in a good movie, you can be good in a bad movie, you can be bad in a bad movie, but never, ever, be bad in a good movie."

    In a show that has a long list of bad actors she’s by far the worst. You’d think after all this time she’d get used to it and would stop laugh-talking.


    Kat Dennings started off as that quirky-cool-awkward character and just seems to live it now. Not sure if she’s just half arsíng it now because she’s sick and tired of the roles being same but it’s become so self aware (as per Wandavision).
