* Chris Tucker was actually considered to be "the next Creator/EddieMurphy" after ''Film/{{Friday}}'' and the first ''Film/RushHour'' movie in the mid-late '90s. Unfortunately, Tucker wasn't much motivated to branch out and capitalize immediately; he had become born-again during that time, and declined to reprise his role in ''Next Friday'' due to its raunchy content. The only movies that Tucker has done since 1998 have been the two sequels to ''Rush Hour'' (Tucker was apparently paid $20 million for ''Rush Hour 2''). Tucker has seemed to be more passionate about his charity work, buddying up with the late Music/MichaelJackson, and his stand-up. Rumor has it he was offered the same type roles over and over again, and turned them down out of frustration. After landing a major supporting role in the 2012 acclaimed comedy ''Film/SilverLiningsPlaybook'', he has an opportunity to make a comeback in film, only time will tell if he does.

* Creator/MollyRingwald is a serious case of this, to the point she could rival the above-pictured Shyamalan for the Trope Illustrator title. She seemed set for great things after a [[Film/SixteenCandles trio]] [[Film/TheBreakfastClub of]] [[Film/PrettyInPink hits]] with writer/director Creator/JohnHughes, even making the cover of Time Magazine at the age of eighteen. However, a vicious split from Hughes and failed attempts to broaden her appeal to audiences utterly destroyed her future as a leading girl. Nowadays, Ringwald is both PersonaNonGrata in Hollywood and virtually uninsurable. Though she's recently been cast as the mother of Archie on ''{{Series/Riverdale}}'', she still has a long way to go to regain a fraction of her lost glory.

Though she's recently been cast as These days she makes a living guest starring on TV and appearing in B-movies [[MoneyDearBoy for a quick paycheck]], a ''very'' far cry from her ultrapopularity in the mother of Archie on ''{{Series/Riverdale}}'', she still has a long way to go to regain a fraction of her lost glory.

** The tables finally turned in 2015. After spending the first half of 2015 on an apology tour and doing his best to undo the damage of his 2014 scandals, along with the surprise hit with Music/{{Skrillex}} and Music/{{Diplo}} "Where Are Ü Now", his highly-promoted comeback single "What Do You Mean?" debuted at #1 on the Hot 100, something that Music/OneDirection never achieved; his subsequent album ''Purpose'' was released on the same day as 1D's, and went on to trounce it, debuting at number one (subsequently ending 1D's perfect #1 album streak at 4) and having two enormously successful followup singles ("Sorry" and "Love Yourself"). Two more tracks featuring Bieber, Major Lazer's "Cold Water" and DJ Snake's "Let Me Love You", were also smash hits in the summer of 2016. While he's still on shaky ground (and 1D arguably still has a bigger "hardcore" following), he gained a larger casual following than he or 1D ever had. It's certainly a positive turning point and the future looks bright.

* Creator/TomHardy was once considered the next big star with a role in ''Film/StarTrekNemesis''. However the film flopped badly and nearly killed his career before it got started. This resulted in Hardy [[DrivenToSuicide falling into an addiction to alcohol and crack]] which he eventually overcame. His role in ''Film/{{Bronson}}'' helped revive his fortunes but it was his role in ''Film/{{Inception}}'' that [[CareerResurrection made him big again]]. He followed it up with ''Film/TinkerTailorSoldierSpy'', ''Film/{{Warrior}}'', ''Film/ThisMeansWar'', ''Film/{{Lawless}}'' and, most notably, his role as [[BigBad Bane]] in ''Film/TheDarkKnightRises'' which was a colossal hit and earned him huge acclaim. 2015's ''Film/MadMaxFuryRoad'' opened to rave reviews, ending up being the most critically acclaimed film of 2015, and ''Film/TheRevenant'' nabbed him an Oscar nomination, so don't expect Hardy to fade into obscurity anytime soon.

Added DiffLines:

* Music/{{Madonna}}. Coinciding with a huge breakout in the early to mid 1980's music scene, she soon sought to capitalize in film as well, and it seemed to work at first, with her first starring role in ''Film/DesperatelySeekingSusan'' proving very well with critics and audiences. Although her acting career quickly fell flat with ''Shanghai Surprise'' (which would cost her her marriage with future mega-star Creator/SeanPenn), her music career got even stronger, and she would become the biggest-selling female music artist of all time.


Added DiffLines:

* Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger started out as a low-budget actor with forgettable films like ''Hercules in New York'' in his name, but soon found luck when a little-known director named Creator/JamesCameron tapped him to play the title role in ''Film/TheTerminator''. Although the movie received initially mixed reviews, it soon became such a massive pop culture behemoth that its [[Film/Terminator2JudgementDay sequel]] in 1991 was ''far more successful''. He soon scored more action roles throughout the 1980's and 1990's, with major box-office hits like ''Film/{{Predator}}'', ''Film/TotalRecall'' and ''Film/TrueLies'' becoming quintessential action flicks of the era. Unfortunately, his stint as Mr. Freeze in ''Film/BatmanAndRobin'' didn't fare as well, and it ended up [[{{Pun}} freezing]] his star power for the rest of the 90's. He made one final stint as T-800 in ''Film/Terminator3RiseOfTheMachines'' before deciding to take a break from acting and serve as the Governor of California for eight straight years before returning to film. Although he doesn't have the star power of the 80's and 90's this time around, he's still a go-to action star.

* Creator/ChrisRock got his start as a ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' cast member, then his career ''exploded'' in the mid 90's with the Creator/{{HBO}} stand-up special ''Bring the Pain'', which made him a network favorite for the rest of the decade. He soon got film roles for a number of comedy films including ''Film/{{Dogma}}'', ''Film/BeverlyHillsNinja'' and ''Film/DownToEarth''. Unfortunately, most of his films were mediocre at best, and didn't draw many audiences to the theaters. He eventually took a break from starring in films in the mid 2000's and went to voice work, notably voicing Marty in the ''WesternAnimation/{{Madagascar}}'' series, and eventually ventured into television production with the highly successful sitcom ''Series/EverybodyHatesChris'', which ran for four seasons. He's also hosted two Oscar ceremonies throughout his career, so he's still kicking for the time being.

** His career behindnthe camera hasn't worked out well, either. Aside from his own films, most of Sandler's off-screen production ventures, such as ''Film/TheMasterOfDisguise'' and ''Bucky Larson: Born to be a Star'', were universally panned and did poorly at the box office, and also helped [[StarDerailingRole derail the careers of those who starred in them]].

All of them were produced through his company, Happy Madison Productions, which has become synonymous with abysmal low-brow humor.

* The boys of ''Series/{{Supernatural}}.'' Both Creator/JensenAckles and Creator/JaredPadalecki have gotten incredible praise for the show (including helping to raise it above the ScifiGhetto), and for being a couple of members of "Young Hot Hollywood" who can actually act instead of relying on their good looks. However, both of their attempts at film careers after starting ''Supernatural'' (Jensen in ''Film/MyBloodyValentine3D'' and Jared in the ''Film/FridayThe13th2009'' remake) went nowhere. The big test will be when they branch out of the sci-fi/horror genre, and when ''Supernatural'' ends (the current plan is to go for 10 seasons, so the show will run at least until 2015) and they can be choosier about film roles (since right now they are limited to what they can do while ''Supernatural'' is on break).

However, by the early 2010's, audiences began to lose interest in Sandler's crass humor, and his films began to underperform. ''Film/JackAndJill'' went on to be regarded as one of the worst films ever produced, and ''Film/ThatsMyBoy'' became Sandler's first biggest flop since ''Eight Crazy Nights''. Additionally, studio executives began to grow irritated with how terrible his movies were becoming to the public eye, and his [[MeanCharacterNiceActor usual friendliness with everyone he works with]] ended up going downhill one day when Sandler [[IdiotBall marched into Sony's studio offices demanding that $200 million be set aside]] for a potential ''TabletopGame/CandyLand'' movie, a move that ended up sending the film into DevelopmentHell. He did one final attempt to save his fans with ''Film/{{Pixels}}'', but it instead became one of the most hated films of 2015 and bombed spectacularly, ensuring that audiences were no longer attracted to Sandler's comedy as they were a decade ago. Following this flop, Sandler began to divest himself heavily from Sony and has almost completely disappeared from the silver screen aside from voice parts in the ''WesternAnimation/HotelTransylvania'' films, and has been relegated to doing films for Creator/{{Netflix}}.
