Halle Berry. She has been in shit since her Oscar win.March 5, 2013 at 5:09 pm #94455

I vote for Louise Fletcher. It might not be all her fault, as Nurse Ratched is a tough part to follow up (as Angela Lansbury, who turned the part down, has noted), but she has been stuck in a string of “bad mother” characters for over 30 years since One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.March 5, 2013 at 5:25 pm #94457

Adrien Brody is trying not to be typecast as a Jewish man.March 5, 2013 at 6:39 pm #94459
Adrien Brody is trying not to be typecast as a Jewish man.
What does that mean? It is such a shame Brody hasn’t been as relevant. He’s extremely talented.
Renee Zellweger, Marcia Gay Harden, Tim Robbins, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Russell Crowe (Well I think you can say after A Beautiful Mind), and of course Halle Berry.
Such a shame, Berry has a ton of talent and beauty, yet she wastes it on these other horrible films. Really makes people forget about what she stands for.Marcus Snowden (The Artist Formerly Known as msnowden1)ParticipantMarch 5, 2013 at 6:44 pm #94460
Yeah. Halle Berry was in a good film ,Monster’s Ball, now she’s in Movie 43. Oh, how the mighty have fallen.March 5, 2013 at 6:50 pm #94461
A few off the top of my head:
-Helen Hunt was heading here for a while but may or may not be recovering
-I don’t know about you guys but the last time I saw Susan Sarandon was on an episode of 30 Rock
-Adrien Brody, but like msnowden1 mentioned, he’s not getting many offers to show his range
-Catherine Zeta-Jones, though she has been purposely focusing on her stage work
-Marcia Gay Harden for the same reason as Jones
-Cuba Gooding, Jr.
And there’s the interesting case of Al Pacino, who stopped doing good film work immediately after winning his Oscar (Jack and Jill?) but has continuously knocked it out of the park on television (Angels in America, You Don’t Know Jack) as well as on the Broadway stage (The Merchant of Venice).March 5, 2013 at 7:00 pm #94462
6 years ago I might have said Ben Affleck, but he’s managed to turn it around as I’m hoping a lot of these other people will.
I’d probably agree the most with Mira SorvinoMarcus Snowden (The Artist Formerly Known as msnowden1)ParticipantMarch 5, 2013 at 7:11 pm #94463

Everybody’s in that movie! Winslet is in it after she won an Oscar. Catwoman and perfect stranger and gothika make the case more! Things we lost in the fire was a flop but her acting was good like frankie and Alice but being good in a hit has not happened. Bad in flops is her most common occurrence!March 5, 2013 at 7:17 pm #94465
Halle Berry has always been in terrible movies to be fair, as Hilary Swank who also have a TERRIBLE post-carreer.
For me, the two in the worst situations (in the 2000’s) are Forest Whitaker, Adrien Brody, Jennifer Hudson and Renée Zellweger.
Jennifer Connelly and Catherine Zeta-Jones are also in a bad position, but – at least – I think that the fact their families are priority means something.
In general I would say Faye Dunaway and Luise Rainer.March 5, 2013 at 7:20 pm #94466
F. Murray Abraham should be on the list.
Emil Jannings and Luise Rainer are some very early examples I can think of.
