HE LET HIS CAREER PLOW INTO AN ICEBERG:  Back in when this blog was first emerging from the primordial ooze,** one of my early posts was on Film Threat's list of the once-hot actors and directors with the coldest career forecasts in Hollywood. Go take another look at that list, and, yeah, Mira Sorvino, Winona Ryder, and Hayden Christensen never quite made it, though others on the list (Matthew McConaughey, Kathryn Bigelow) did manage to turn it around.

** How old is this blog?  One of the early posts expressed jealousy that the Red Sox had hired as GM some 28-year-old kid named Theo Epstein. The first TAR finale recapped? The one with Zach and Flo.

    The list seems to do a better job with actors than directors/franchises. Now that Russell Crowe is in three of the most hyped movies of the next year or so, they probably regret putting him at number one (and Leonardo DiCaprio seems to be doing okay for himself), but most of them are no longer superstars. On the other hand, Woody Allen and Steven Spielberg have a boatload of Oscar nominations since then, and the Star Trek, James Bond and "DIRECTORS THAT INSIST ON PUTTING THEIR OWN “TOUCH” ON SUPERHERO MOVIES" franchises are making more money than they can count.

  3. Coincidentally, I greatly enjoyed this semi-satirical take on the Twilight cast in 10 years.
