I guess Miles Teller?

He must have one of the best agents in the world, because none of his movies do well at the box office.

Marlon Brando. He’s been out of the public eye for a while.

Re: Is There An Actor/Actress You've Been Rooting For To

In all honesty, I was really rooting for Anton Yeltin. He was a very good actor and I was really hoping he would have a breakout movie and move on to better things. I was very surprised when I read about him dying and how. He had so much potential and I really think he would have eventually won an Oscar.

I am pulling for Joseph Gordon-Levitt. So much potential. Just needs the right movie and he will take off.

For some odd reason pretty much everyone who plays Superman:
Tom Welling
Brandon Routh
Henry Cavill

They all seem like decent actors who deserve a bit more than they’ve gotten. Although Cavill is coming into his own.

Scott Adkins. Hes one break away from being an action mega star. Accident Man was his best yet.

Is he even still interested in acting? Between directing and Hit RECord, he seems to be fairly busy.

The fact of the matter is with so much scripted TV being produced these days, if an actor of any level of fame wants to find steady work, he or she can.

Bridget Fonda.

She hasn't appeared in anything since 2002.

Didnít she get in a bad car crash years ago and she stopped acting after that? Or am I thinking of someone totally different?

I'm pulling for Jeff Bridges to start speaking properly again.

LOL it might be too late for Nick Nolte to speak coherently.


I don't think Bridget Fonda will ever come back and she might have aged significantly so it will be harder to cast.

I'd settle for redubbing his dialogue in HELL OR HIGH WATER without the marbles in his mouth. His attempt to "act" like an old coot ruined the movie for me. I don't recall him doing that in TRUE GRIT and he was just fine there.

True Grit is where he started sounding like that.

After his Oscar win playing a country singer in Crazy Heart, and the next year getting an Oscar nod for True Grit - I think Bridges decided at that point to just go with the old cowboy persona.

He's probably kicking back, playing pool with Casper Van Dien while collecting his Riverdale paychecks.
