Other than the Toy Story movies I think the last film I saw him in the lead was Sully that film about the plane ditching into the Hudson river. He's not as high profile as he once was. I think the movie industry has changed it's no longer about the big star headlining the movie anymore, you now have more ensemble casts and it's more the story that drives the hype and sales, which is why you get so many remakes, reboots and films made from other media, such as books, video games and TV shows or anything with an already established following.

Today, movies seem to rely more on CGI with crazy special effects blaring over the speakers and lighting up the screen. The role of the actors seems to be almost secondary to the action scenes.

Kevin Spacey with reason from what he's been accused of.

Gary Sinise

Gary Oldman

Matt Dillon

John Malkovich

Jim Carey

Goldie Hawn and her SO Kurt Russell

Speaking of Russell, Theresa Russell

Let's add Val Kilmer to that list, but with reason due to health issues that he claims are not as severe as they seem.

You mean Gary Oldman? He won an Oscar last year playing Churchill :conf

I completely forgot about that role he played. He was great in that role and showed his acting chops without being loud and an over the top character like he played in "The Professional" and "State Of Grace".

I stand corrected. Oh, and I had already corrected the last name spelling.,

Truth is, I don't go see a lot of movies at the cinema any more.

Tom Hanks hasn't disappeared, but for years and years he was everywhere, in Big movies all the time, winning all the awards, and then all of a sudden...... when's the last time you saw him in the lead role of a big movie?

:hat

Tom Hanks is still making big movies and a lead. Last 6/7 years he had that Captain Phillips film, Cloud Atlas was fairly huge, Saving Mr Banks was great with him as Walt Disney, Bridge of Spies won Oscars and was a Spielberg movie, that Sully movie about the pilot, The Divinci Code sequel folk were talking loads about, The Post with Meryk Streep that was Oscar bait and soon the new Toy Story. Seems to be the same run of stuff he'd been having in the prior years.

Britney Spears. 15 years ago she was arguably the most famous woman on the planet.

Rihanna is another.

Was going to say that Robert Pattinson too but he's Batman now so he's going to be fuckin huge again.

The other cunt in the Twilight films who was in good knick.

After he last fought - Prince Naseem Hamed went under the radar for a decade.

In recent years he has reappeared and given some apperances and TV interviews.

But after that Barrera loss - he came back for one more fight in 2002.

And then

2002 - 2012 - He went off the radar.

Now we see him back again - more at ease in the media spotlight.

Malkovich had a recurring role on Billions.
We forget that streaming shows are a legit alternative for actors nowadays. Same money, same audiences.
