Wow, I had no idea that SuperTeen was printed on paper infected with Vashta Nerada.

Mara Wilson looks nothing like herself. If she told me she was in all those movies, I'd make her break out some ID. Something changed in her face.... It's weird though, because I was thinking "What the hell happened to her?" the other day, and now this link....

Jonathan Lipnicki looks like a douchebag.

Joseph Mazzello was always a really solid actor in my opinion, and I think that he needs more screen time.

Charlie from "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" looks pretty much how you'd expect for someone who did one performance and went back to have a regular life at home.

The kid from "Free Willy" looks like a ton of people I see in everyday situations. The article was right when it alluded to the fact that he looks like a nobody.

Also he's really the only sad one on the list.


This. In fact I was pleasantly surprised at how many on the list seem to be leading normal, productive lives.

Celerian: Madbassist1: Celerian: Madbassist1: Lord_Dubu: Haley Joel Osment didn't "fall from favor" his parents decided he should go to school and be a normal kid rather than let him spiral out of control when he got too old to play cute little kids as other child actors that had gone on before had done.

Well someone better tell them what his younger sister has been doing with her time, dontcha think?

In 2011 she won the U.G.L.Y. Celebrity of the Year award, but I don't think she's that bad looking.

Also, HJO has been doing voice over work for the past 8 years or so. He's probably raking in lots of cash as Sora from the Kingdom Hearts series.

Uh...I think you missed my point, but ok.

Do you normally come by to shiat one someone's parade when they're supporting your case? I obviously DIDN'T miss your point, since I'm qualifying your snark against Lord_Dubu by showing that he was still working in the entertainment industry. And besides, my comment was mostly for the joke about EJO being an U.G.L.Y. Celebrity.


uh...ok, sorrrrey, dude! sheesh.

Seems like most of these folks decided they didn't want to be actors after all and found careers in other fields. Nothing depressing about that.

TeddyRooseveltsMustache: I omitted Haley Joel Osment. I think he's a dickface. But that's just going on....nothing really. I just think he's weird.


I think he has the problem that his face didn't really change that much - it filled out a little but it's sort of in between his boyish face and a more "manly" look, so he went from being cute to being sort of "meh". Also, I think for an adult acting career he's better off dropping "Haley" and just going as Joel - he might be pigeonholed since he (or his parents) opted to keep the Haley when his career started.

Abe Vigoda's Ghost: PIP_the_TROLL: mjbok: Since they died they are seen as (in many cases) more talented or important than they actually were.

Holy shiat is this ever true of whatshisface that played Joker. American cultural worship of young, farked up people who kill themselves is rather unsettling to witness.

Heath Ledger? He actually was quite talented.


Heath Ledger was one of the greatest acting talents of our time. His work in Sci-Fi's 'Roar' was a credit and lent legitimacy to to sci-fi channel series from then on.

His riveting performance in 'A Knight's Tale' showed his steely side unlike any role up to that point.

Ledger? More like Legendary.

From the first scene to the creduts all she does is be sexually and physically abused so not a lot of smiling in that either.

Last month Talk of the Nation had an episode about A Christmas Story. The guest was Scotty Schwartz, who played Flick, the kid who got his tongue stuck to the pole. Mr. Schwartz went on to work behind-the-scenes in porn after A Christmas Story.

It was hilarious listening to Neal Conan ask Scott about what he'd been doing after A Christmas Story and Schwartz hesitating before replying. You could almost hear him think "Doesn't this guy know I did porn? Why is he asking me this?"

Re: Haley Joel Osment. He was a in a good movie called Home of the Giants, about high school hoops in Indiana. He was really good in it, but it never made it beyond the film festival circuit and went straight to video. He finished a movie in 2011 called Montana Amazon that's awaiting release; it has Olympia Dukakis and Alison Brie, he plays a guy in a weird family that does wacky stuff. He also did a remake of a film called Boutonniere called Sassy Pants, he's the lead, it's supposed to be released in 2012. He's also doing a movie based on the graphic novel Wake the Dead this year, so he's not just sitting around smoking pot or playing golf, which seem to be what his two hobbies are. Well, OK, maybe he is, but he's working steadily, he's done some stage work, some voiceover work etc.

It is, but there isn't any nudity I could remember, even from Carla Guigino. I watched it on Cinemax this weekend, and somehow Zack Snyder managed to make the combination of scantily clad women and over the top action scenes kind of dull. It should have been an awesome guilty pleasure movie, but in the end it was just a hot mess.

nah. that's a guy who hit a ball with a stick. You're thinking of Balustrade.

No, that's the Scotland Yard inspector who farmed out his difficult cases to Sherlock Holmes. You're thinking of Ballona.

No, that's the gap-toothed anal porn queen. You're thinking of bologna.

No, that's the old Capo from the Gambino crime family. you're thinking of balsamic.

No, that's a shoe style. You're thinking of Balenciaga.

No, that's a type of recliner. You're thinking of Belgium

No, bronchioles are the team that beat the Steelers yesterday. You're thinking of brachiosaurus.

No, that's that weird vegetable created by the unholy merging of broccoli and cabbage. You're thinking of Broncoscopy.

No, that's the viscous, black petroleum fraction also known as "asphalt", "pitch", or "tar". You're thinking of belladonna.

No belladonna was a Stevie Nicks album you are thinking of mortadella.
