Unfortunately, as the turn of the 2010s approached, Black's career began to go down the wrong track. After a praised role in ''Film/TropicThunder'', he got cast alongside Creator/MichaelCera in the prehistoric comedy ''YearOne'', which tanked considerably at the box office and was destroyed by critics. Worse still, it finally revealed his {{Typecasting}} habit he did in previous films, resulting in the upset of many audiences. The final star destroying blow, however, came with the massive domestic flop of a [[Film/GulliversTravels2010 film adaptation]] of ''Literature/GulliversTravels'', which dealt an even bigger blow to his career. His subsequent filmography had been a string of flops (with the exception of ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda2'' and ''Film/TheMuppets'', in which he played a key cameo appearance). ''Film/{{Bernie}}'' seemed to be a CareerResurrection for him, but despite winning critical acclaim, it never got to a wide release. Fortunately, it seems as though the good notices of the D's album, ''Rize of the Fenix'', managed to keep Black from going completely under, and his next major film after ''Bernie'', the [[Film/{{Goosebumps}} film adaptation]] of ''Literature/{{Goosebumps}}'', was well-received by critics and moviegoers and was moderate box office success, sparking some hope that his acting career could be headed back up the ladder.

[[LeslieNielsenSyndrome Prior to his becoming known for his comedies]], a lot of his early acting career involved bit parts in serious movies (he played a crazed assassin in ''BobRoberts'', the brother of Sean Penn's death row inmate in ''Film/DeadManWalking'', and in ''Film/EnemyOfTheState'' he played one of the NSA tech-support agents, to name three examples).
