* Creator/JayMohr was billed as a rising star in the late '90s, playing memorable roles in movies such as ''Film/JerryMaguire'' and ''Film/PicturePerfect'', as well as having a recurring role on TheJeffFoxworthyShow. ''Series/{{Action}}'' was meant to be his ultimate catalyst into fame, but it was panned by critics and burned out after one season (later VindicatedByCable and has since become a CultClassic). Since then, he's only managed supporting roles and TV shows that either were low-rated or short-lived.

Added DiffLines:

* While ''{{Series/Charmed}}'' itself was a significant hit, the derailing came from Shannen Doherty's high profile exit after the third season. Having been a respectable TV star in the 80s and 90s, she was notably dismissed from ''Series/BeverlyHills90210'' due to tension between her and other cast members. Similar stories surfaced on the ''Charmed'' set, with TW King leaving after Season 1 - rumoured to be because Shannen Doherty didn't like him (though other sources say he asked for more screentime and was just cut). Doherty left the show very publicly after a feud with co-star Alyssa Milano, to the point where she allegedly said "either she goes or I do". The fact that she had been fired from a second hit show after fighting with cast members hurt her reputation, as did her subsequent refusal to allow ''Charmed'' to use any archive footage or pictures of her - even taking it longer for the first three seasons to come out on DVD as a result. She turned to reality TV project and TV movies, but never with the high profile she once enjoyed.

* Rob Schneider of all people (known best for playing bit parts in Happy Madison movies and/or leading in ridiculous ripe-for-parody comedies ([[Series/SouthPark "Rob Schneider is:]] ''[[Series/SouthPark A Carrot!"]]'')) headlined a sitcom for CBS aptly titled ''Rob'', where he played a milquetoast white guy married to a SaucyLatina stereotype (and both lived with her family.) It didn't last a full season and ''no one'' from the show, except for Eugenio Derbez, who would go on to star in the sleeper hit, ''Film/InstructionsNotIncluded'', has been seen since.

* Creator/{{ITV}} made headlines when it poached Ross Kemp from the Creator/{{BBC}} with a record 800,000 pound contract. They promptly [[ExecutiveMeddling shoehorned him into]] ''Series/UltimateForce'', causing a significant retool, in order to justify the cost. The show performed incredibly badly and suffered nightmarish scheduling delays, resulting in Kemp's career as an actor effectively ending. He reinvented himself as an investigative journalist and has since regained significant critical acclaim.

* Perennial geek culture fan-favorite Summer Glau seems to have finally been done in by the cancellation of ''Series/TheCape'', making it her third cancelled series in six years (fourth, if you count ''Series/{{Dollhouse}}'', in which she has a somewhat small but significant recurring guest starring role).
