Why Hollywood Won’t Cast These 5 Actors Anymore?
When your status as a Hollywood actor is on the rise, you can potentially do no wrong. However, in the capricious platform of Hollywood, stars rise and fall in a remarkably expeditious fashion. One lousy action and your career as an actor could be done for good. Here’s a look at 5 actors that Hollywood probably won’t ever cast again.
Mel Gibson’s Hollywood career has been seen by many as somewhat uncanny. The world has seen him rise from being an unknown person in the Mad Max series to being an A-List actor in the Academy Award-winning movie, Braveheart. But since then, Gibson hasn’t seen much of the limelight due to a series of scandals which ruined his image in front of the media.
In the late 2000s, Gibson was recorded making anti-Semitic remarks in California and was further arrested for the same. This turned the Hollywood community against the actor from New York as he was rarely ever given a leading role in a film again. Reboots of his previous movies (namely Mad Max) with fresh faces in them did not help Gibson’s chances of a comeback either.
It is safe to say that Tobey Maguire completely disappeared from Hollywood ever since his ‘awkwardly emo’ character in Spider-Man 3. While many would argue that his role in that movie ruined his status as an actor, it is not entirely correct.
According to the 2013 Vulture interview with Sam Raimi, Robert Simonds in Deadline the director for the Spider-Man franchise starring Maguire, Marvel had given Raimi a shot at rejuvenating the franchise with a 4th installment. However, due to not being able to submit a script in time, Marvel turned to another project which saw Andrew Garfield star as Spider-Man in the 2012 movie, The Amazing Spider-Man.
Possibly a surprise entrant to the list, Jessica Alba is also an actor whose status as a Hollywood celebrity has taken a lot of hits. Her roles in flop movies like the Fantastic Four franchise, Awake (2007) and The Love Guru (2008) have been universally panned by critics.
While the actress from California blames his directors and writers for most of her work, one can’t counter the fact that some of her roles in Hollywood differ entirely from that of her actual persona. Apart from that, Alba is also extremely busy with her family as she is currently a mother of 3 children and owns presently a consumer-good brand called ‘The Honest Company.’
Seann William Scott
Seann William Scott is best known for his role as Steve Stifler in the American Pie movie series. His character as Stifler has been loved by many despite having the characteristics of a readily degradable personality. However, what took Scott’s Hollywood career to the wrong directions was the extent of the franchise.
Scott played the role of Stifler in all of the principal installments in the American Pie franchise running from 1999-2012. Therefore, it made it really difficult for fans to love him in other roles as they only saw him as him as the sarcastic perv played by him in American Pie.
