i wouldn't consider STEALTH or POSEIDON as "star-making" vehicles. you should check out UNDERTOW if you want a good josh lucas performance.

Edward Burns failed to do this (15 Minutes, Life or Something Like It, etc.)
and the winner of this thread had to be Thomas Jane. I feel bad for the poor guy. Film after film he stars in bombs hard and/or he doesnt seem to get the respect he should. The Mist, Dreamcatcher, Punisher, Sweetest Thing, Deep Blue Sea, etc.

Vin Diesel

I'm gonna say Isla Fisher -- Really she's headlining her own movie?

Chris O'Donnell was supposed to be the next Tom Cruise, but that didn't work out.
