Ever see a really good movie with some one who can play the role really well, and then go back to thinking, "how come that guy hasn't made any other movies?" Well, I've been thinking about this for a while and decided to share with you what I found. There are actually a bunch of actors that played lead roles in big movies that we've never seen afterwards. Here are the top 10.
Quinton Aaron, The Blind Side — He played Michael Oher, the kid that was adopted. Where have we seen him lately? An episode of “One Tree Hill.”
Micah Sloat, Paranormal Activity — The male half of the obnoxious Panormal Activity couple has all but disappeared.
Michael Stahl-David, Cloverfield — Quite a few of the cast members came out of Cloverfield as stars (Lizzy Caplan, Odette Annable), but not the lead.
Rupert Evans, Hellboy — He played John Thaddeus Myers in Hellboy. He’s British, so you can still find him on British television, but in America. we only know about the people Guillermo del Toro passed over in order to hire Evans, Jeremy Renner and Jason Schwartzman.
Skander Keynes and Georgie Henley, The Chronicles of Narnia — I hope they were paid well for their roles in the Chronicles of Narnia franchise, because it’s all they’ve ever done.
Ioan Gruffudd, Fantastic Four — For the guy who played Mr. Fantastic in Fantastic Four, his movie career certainly hasn’t been fantastic since.
Max Records, Where the Wild Things Are — He did have a role in the little seen Sitter, and he may yet have a career in front of him, but he hasn’t really done much since his break-out role.
Sarah Roemer, Disturbia — The love interest in Disturbia and Fired Up! has been reduced to television guest roles.
Rob Brown, The Express — He played Ernie Davis in a biopic about Ernie Davis, and hasn’t really been heard from since. Interesetingly, Chadwick Boseman had a bit role in this movie.
Ed Speleers, Eragon — To be fair, Speleers did reappear in the most previous season of “Downton Abbey.”
