Cole Hauser is Bada$$!

No hes not starring in a movie titled badass, just wanted to say thats just what he is, badass. Why doesnt this guy get more starring roles? I think he has huge potential to be a leading man and possibly have like his own action oriented series of films ala Bourne type stuff. This guy is good....

He's pretty much a B-movie guy. Either he isn't getting offered good movies, or his agent stinks. Or maybe he just prefers getting high and playing the bongos naked with Matthew McConaughey too much.

I was going to say that Cole Hauser is short, but it's not so, he is 6'1''...I'm a big Cole Hauser fan too, been following him since his neo-nazi Marlon Brando in HIGHER LEARNING...still havent seen PAPARRAZI yet..

Another similar bad-ass is Scott Caan, but I think he's not that famous because he is short, 5'5''.

Tom Cruise is short too, but filmmakers work around that and always make him look larger than life in his films....

Maybe because he is too busy with his own new cop-show on FOX?

He does kick ass in "Paparrazi"... and was pretty good in "Pitch Black" and "The Cave".

I think height is not much of a problem now - you mentioned Tom Cruise yourself. I just think Scott Caan, being a very talented actor, is not that "hero" type they usually cast for major roles. But Cole Hauser in my opinion IS that type (unlike his father who was a perfect match for villain parts, but not of a main character). I thought his career would be kicked high after PAPARAZZI as he was very believable there and showed that hero in him to everyone. But no... That would be very sad if he ends up in cheap B-action movies and horrors.

Nobody saw Paparazzi. That's the problem.

Yeah. If Paparazzi had done better at the B.O. Hauser's career might be going in a different direction now.

I think he's got a bad guy reputation that needs to be worked on a bit before he becomes a great action star. Hell, even when he's playing good guys he still looks pretty menacing (at the moment I don't think that's a good thing.)

And those who did thought it sucked. That movie probably hurt him a lot more than it helped.

No personality?

Inability to emote?

Blank-slate face?

I'm sure there's more to this list...

He's horrible.

Re: Cole Hauser is Bada$$!

I searched for Paparrazi and this thread popped up. It'll do.

I watched that movie tonight at the behest of my gf's mother, and I've got to admit I liked it. There's no thinking required on this one, as it's easily one of the most straight-forward revenge movies I've seen since Bronson was in front of cameras. Short, simple and with lots of sweet revenge.

He's hilariously over-the-top as the villain in 2 FAST 2 FURIOUS. I'd love to see him pop up in some capacity in the next film.

I keep hoping he'll come back as the big bad of whatever might be the final entry in the franchise.

Thought he was funny in The Break-Up.
