Hollywood Stopped Casting These Actors In 2018 And Here’s Why


Some actors are simply upstaged by the next
big thing, but there are also those stars whose careers end because they did something
absolutely horrible or experienced bad things or just can’t put butts in cineplex seats
anymore. Here are some stars Hollywood seemingly stopped
casting in 2018. Arrested Career Development Jeffrey Tambor was among television’s most
respected and versatile actors. An industry veteran of groundbreaking television,
Tambor earned four Emmy nominations for his work as self-absorbed talk show sidekick Hank
Kingsley on The Larry Sanders Show, then moved on to portray a comically terrible father
and fallen construction tycoon wanted for a little “light treason” on Arrested Development. He then took on the role of a lifetime: Maura
Pfefferman, an individual transitioning from male to female on Amazon’s Transparent. His impressive work on the series makes his
alleged behavior on the set all the more shocking and disappointing. In February 2018, Amazon fired Tambor from
Transparent after Trace Lysette accused the actor of multiple acts of sexual harassment. The actor denied any wrongdoing, but because
of these allegations as well as revelations that he verbally harassed Arrested Development
costar Jessica Walter, few in Hollywood are willing to work with Tambor right now. Don’t sleep and tweet The comeback and fall of Roseanne Barr happened
so fast that the world of TV is still nursing its collective whiplash. The new Roseanne finished the 2017-18 season
as the third-most-watched show on TV, but then Barr had to screw it all up. On May 29, 2018, Barr tweeted a racist joke
about Valerie Jarett, an advisor to President Barack Obama. Barr apologized, saying it was just a tasteless
joke, but then she blamed her actions on being under the influence of the sleeping pill Ambien. Later on, Barr posted a YouTube video claiming
she didn’t even know Jarrett was African-American. Ignoring Barr’s defenses, ABC canceled Roseanne. The network reworked the show into The Conners,
in which Barr’s character, just like her career, has died. Lea the Diva Lea Michele is supposedly a bit of a diva,
and it isn’t something she’s very shy about. In 2011, Michele told Allure, “I came from the theater world, where the
word ‘diva’ was awesome.” But as awesome of a performer as she may be,
the former Rachel Berry didn’t make a lot of friends during her time singing Journey
songs with other actors pretending to be teens on Glee. In Naya Rivera’s 2016 memoir Sorry Not Sorry,
the actress who played Santana Lopez detailed the slow dissolution of her friendship with
Michele. Rivera claims their relationship crumbled
when she cut into Michele’s stardom with more time on screen. She also said she took the brunt of Michele’s
blame for anything at all that went wrong on set. Michele’s diva attitude might not have been
fatal if her first big post-Glee TV show hadn’t been such a spectacular bomb. In January 2018, ABC canceled her sitcom The
Mayor after just nine episodes, putting the kibosh on a 2018 comeback. Biggs mistakes Affable comic actor Jason Biggs has had a
few hit movies over the past two decades, but they’re almost all entries in the American
Pie franchise, which sees his character mature from a pie-loving teen to college student
to family man. Producers aren’t too keen to bank on the star
of flops such as Loser, My Best Friend’s Girl, and Saving Silverman. Nor are they going to cast him in shows when
his big TV starring vehicle, Mad Love, was canceled after 13 episodes. Another possible reason for Biggs’ not landing
more roles: He’s mean. He has a history of trashing American Pie
costar Tara Reid on talk shows like In Bed with Joan and Watch What Happens Live. He’s also one of a growing number of celebrities
who should just stay away from Twitter. While Biggs was voicing Leonardo on Nickelodeon’s
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the network came under fire for linking to the actor’s
personal twitter account after Biggs tweeted off-color remarks about Ann Romney and Janna
Ryan during the 2012 Republican National Convention. Honestly, the last time Biggs made headlines
for his work rather than his bad behavior was when he was let go from the cast of Orange
is the New Black in 2015. Mulder no more As the quirky and brooding Fox Mulder on The
X-Files, David Duchovny unraveled conspiracies and solved strange mysteries from 1993 on. He left the show for a while in 1999 to launch
a movie career. Alas, Duchovny’s transition to film never
really took off. He returned to X-Files toward its 2002 endgame,
and then starred for seven years on the sexy Showtime series Californication. His next TV project was the NBC drama Aquarius,
which was set in California during the era of Charles Manson’s campaign of terror. Aquarius tanked, but fortunately for Duchovny,
the reboot craze hit. The revival of The X-Files finished the 2015-16
season as the No. 7 show on broadcast TV. This time around, the novelty had apparently
worn off, tough, because the show dropped all the way down to No. 91 in the ratings. To date, Duchovny doesn’t have any projects
on the horizon, and it doesn’t even look like the X-Files can keep him on screens anymore. Still, Duchovny has made comebacks before. Is it possible he has another one up his sleeve? “How the hell should I know?” Team Jacob loses Unfortunately Hollywood has a tendency to
chew up child actors and teen idols, and spit them back out before moving on to the next
hot thing. Poor Taylor Lautner was both child actor and
teen idol, starring in The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl 3-D and Cheaper by the Dozen
2 while just a lad, and then portraying teen dream werewolf Jacob Black in all five Twilight
movies. Lautner had trouble transitioning to both
adult roles and non-teen supernatural romance horror movies. His first starring role came in the drama
Abduction, which flopped hard and few people saw his follow-up films. Lautner starred on 20 episodes of the British
TV comedy Cuckoo, taking over after Andy Samberg left the show. Unfortunately, since then it looks like Lautner’s
star has faded. He doesn’t have anything in the works for
2019 to date, but it was a fun ride, at least. Hey, he got to host SNL and date Taylor Swift! American Ugly After the Harvey Weinstein scandal broke,
one of the first actors whose careers ended overnight was Kevin Spacey. A total of 15 people spoke up about Spacey’s
past assaults and unwanted actions, most prominently Star Trek: Discovery star Anthony Rapp, who
says Spacey made advances toward him when he was 14 years old. Spacey issued a bizarre statement in which
he apologized for his actions, although he said he didn’t “remember the encounter” and
appeared to shift the narrative by coming out as a gay man. Not only did Spacey fail to secure future
work, but his past and present work came to an end as well. Netflix announced plans to do one more season
of House of Cards without him, leaving the show in the very capable hands of actress
Robin Wright instead. Director Ridley Scott took the unprecedented
step of eliminating Spacey from All the Money in the World after the actor had already filmed
his scenes, replacing him with Christopher Plummer only weeks before the film’s release. Plummer got a best supporting actor nomination
at the Academy Awards, while Spacey has virtually disappeared off the face of the earth. “And like THAT, he’s gone.” Not-so-new girl By the end of its seven-season run in 2018,
Fox’s New Girl was no longer the widely watched or much-discussed show it had been during
its first few seasons. But it did transform its talented cast into
TV and movie stars. For example, Damon Wayans Junior and Max Greenfield
moved on to CBS’s Happy Together and The Neighborhood, respectively. Lamorne Morris co-starred in the hit Game
Night and has a bunch of projects in the works. Only Zooey Deschanel, the show’s biggest star
when it began, doesn’t have much going on right now. Perhaps she’s just taking a break after headlining
a sitcom for seven years, or maybe she wants to spend more time with her two kids, both
of whom she was pregnant with while New Girl was in production. Let’s hope we’ll hear more from her down the
road. Rocking the boat Grey’s Anatomy hit the air in 2005 and became
an instant smash, making a household name out of Katherine Heigl, who played Dr. Izzie
Stevens. Scarcely three years later, Heigl started
to blow up her career with tactical and pathological precision. In a 2008 Vanity Fair interview, she trashed
her breakout film, Knocked Up, calling it “… a little sexist…” Around the same time, she announced that she
had declined the opportunity to submit her name to the Emmy Awards for her work on Grey’s
Anatomy. Heigl told the Los Angeles Times, “I did not feel that I was given the material
this season to warrant an Emmy nomination,” By 2010, she was off the show and scraping
together a movie career consisting of minor to moderate successes such as Killers, Life
as We Know It, and the aptly titled One for the Money. Heigl returned to TV with a couple of short-lived
shows that never went very far. By 2018, a prickly reputation and a bunch
of bombs meant Heigl’s only acting work was a gig on Suits, which is most famous for being
the TV series Meghan Markle isn’t on anymore. Spider-Man no more Maybe actors who play Spider-Man are like
Highlanders: there can be only one. That would explain how Tobey Maguire vaporized
from Hollywood the way Tom Holland’s iteration of Spider-Man did at the end of Avengers:
Infinity War. “Mr. Stark, I don’t feel so good.” It seemed like Maguire was in it for the long
haul in the late ’90s and early 2000s with roles in movies such as The Cider House Rules,
Seabiscuit, The Ice Storm, Pleasantville, and, of course, the first three Spider-Man
movies. And in 2009, he earned a Golden Globe nomination
for his excellent work in Brothers as a PTSD-afflicted soldier coming home after fighting in Afghanistan. He starred in a few box-office stinkers after
that but the final nail in his coffin may have been his highly unflattering portrayal
in Molly Bloom’s 2014 memoir Molly’s Game. While several stars merit a mention, Maguire
is depicted as a big-time jerk, financially exploiting other players and making Bloom
bark for tips. The release of Aaron Sorkin’s film adaptation
of the book made matters worse. In fact, Maguire’s last credited screen role
was narrating The Boss Baby in 2017. Hoffman is done Dustin Hoffman turned 81 in 2018 and that’s
probably part of the reason why his long Oscar-winning career came to a halt recently, a Hoffman
movie hasn’t been released since 2017, but there’s more to this story. In December 2017, multiple women came forward
to accuse Hoffman of some horrible stuff. One woman says the actor exposed himself to
her in a hotel room when she was a teenager. Another claims he assaulted her during an
audio recording session for Ishtar, and another says Hoffman forced himself on her in the
back of a car. Yet another accused Hoffman of groping her
when they both starred in Death of a Salesman on Broadway. Considering how unforgiving Hollywood has
been lately to actors accused of abusing women, things don’t look great for Hoffman’s career. No hugging it out Jeremy Piven was a hard-working character
actor for years before he found the role that brought him lasting fame and three Emmy Awards
as Ari Gold, sleazy agent to dude-bro actor Vincent Chase on the era-defining 2000s comedy
Entourage. After Entourage wrapped in 2011, Piven moved
on to slightly more grown-up fare, such as the the PBS series Mr. Selfridge, and in 2017,
the CBS crime procedural Wisdom of the Crowd. Alas, it would seem the gross behavior so
often embodied on Entourage was the kind of thing that Piven engaged in off-screen, too. Playboy model and The Real Housewives of Toronto
star Ariane Bellamar accused Piven of repeatedly groping her in his trailer on the set of Entourage. Piven denied all allegations, but less than
a month later, CBS canceled Wisdom of the Crowd. Piven’s pickings have become very slim. His only future appearances are in the movie
All-Star Weekend, which wrapped up filming before the scandal broke, and Ghost Killers,
which is currently filming.

  1. It is really frightening when someone can have their career destroyed because of one accusation. Doesn't matter if it is true or not. Just the accusation will cost you everything. It is a horrible precedent that Hollyood has set. Highly paid actors can survive such a hit, but regular people cannot.

    In addition to that, no one should lose their job over a "racist" comment. Roseanne did not deserve to lose her show or be treated the way she was in the media and with her character. There is such a double standard. It is only white people who lose their livelihood over perceived racism. Anyone else can be overtly racist and lose nothing. I wish that someone (an employer, a studio, etc) would finally stand up in one of these instances and say, "NO, we are not going to destroy everything this person worked for because of a silly tweet. Get over it and move on." So ridiculous 🙄

  2. Haha 1:42 She made a youtube vidoe claming she didnt even know she was african american. Lul thats a way to put it i like how she put it better though "I though the bitch was WHITE! GOD DAMNIT!"

  3. So the last guy.. how is it that he's not being cast when he's currently in a movie that's filming right now? Whoever made this list is kind of stupid.

  4. I love Kevin Spacey I'm absolutely disgusted by the allegations… but I think it's a very talented actor and could make a comeback

  5. So the only problem us viewers ever have with these videos are entries that are apparently meant to fluff the run time or something. Why was the "New Girl" on this list? First off, Hollywood didn't "stop" casting her in anything and the reasons you gave were 100% speculation. Hardly the worst sin of some of the entries of your videos but at least worth mentioning, I believe. If the videos are shorter but have more worthy entries, that'd be fine! It's so distracting when there are entries that really don't belong on your lists. Like "mean celebrities" videos where the only evidence is one rumor that was never confirmed.

  6. They should have never brought Roseanne back and left well enough alone.
    It was going go downhill anyway, it didn't have the spark it initially had. People either watched it to try and trigger the left or protested it to try and trigger the right. And the show played into it, instead of making the politics subtle they made politics the whole show. Who cares who's on the left or right?
    Now The Connors are probably getting the ratings it would have if it was to rebooted without pandering to politics.

  7. A racist joke? Lmao really? The planet of the apes and the muslim brotherhood… where was race brought into that joke? Last time I checked planet of the apes is fiction and Islam is a religion, not a race… she's a comedian and she made a joke. It's kinda what they do smh.

  8. Wait, why is Zooey here? Hollywood did not stop casting her, she seemed to just stopped receiving roles to focus on her family, which the video did mention.

  9. 1:50 although you talked about rosanne, the same show they tried to make after her called "the connors" has died as well. you seemed to leave out that one conveniently.

  10. in response to your thoughts about taylor laughtner – dating taylor swift (true name talentless skank) is not something to be proud of.

  11. What happened to innocent until proven Guilty? Seems like anyone can accuse anyone of anything now and they are done. If you work in Hollywood make sure you don't do anything in real life that you are portraying on the screen.

  12. I'm not in favor but it seems like anybody can accuse anybody on sexual harassment way too easily. I wonder if any of those allegations are actually investigated before making decisions that decisions that may destroy careers.

  13. Bar tweeted an insult to a black woman and racists made it out to be something it wasn't… and the tyrannical left unpersoned her denying those who still liked her the liberty to enjoy her work.

  14. Its disappointing to hear Katherine Heigl trash good movies & shows that she was on. She's mistreated & angered fans, co-workers, writers & staff. I enjoy watching actors that love their job & fans alike.📽🍿

  15. A lot of these people are rich enough that they don't have to work again. They are all more successful than any of us. Sad.

  16. I have to defend Roseanne Barr. It was just a joke. If she made that joke about a "white" person, it wouldn't have escalated like this. And FYI, (sleeping) pills DO influence your state of mind. I was on anti-depressants for a few years and I also did some goofy stuff 'under the influence'.

    Anyway, people should lighten up. She Tweeted a good joke.

  17. So basically it means that nowadays you can ruin any actor's career by accusing them of sexual harrassment.

  18. I find Lea Michele to be irritating to watch. I just cannot seem to find a character that I believe she really shines in. All of her characters seem artificial and forced.

  19. The me to movement is a good thing but the there is bad to it with so many powerful women standing up and telling there story there is a possibility that some of them where lying for attention not all not most but a few things like this happen every body was to quick with fireing and canceling shows I’m not Talking about Kevin spacey or bill cosbey but I’m but if u just have one accusation they show investigate then make a decision at least that’s my opinion

  20. The MeToo movement has gone to far. Nowadays, when a woman want's to get rid of a man, all she has to do is claim he did this or that to her 25-30 years ago.

  21. Would've appreciated a spoiler warning for the Toby Miguire one. Was about to watch Infinity War right after but now ill just unsubscribe and wait a month so I forget the spoiler and then watch it. 🙂

  22. I agree with most of these, but gimme a break with Dustin Hoffman. Don't put him in the same category as the rest of these people. So stfu.

  23. Taylor lautner was ALMOST recast after the first twilight because he wasnt buff enough. Poor him, they should have just recast him.

  24. For the life of me, I cannot begin to understand how the "Twilight" books and films ever gained popularity. I'm entirely certain that the books' original manuscripts were written in crayon and about the only thing the films are good for is beating a nasty case of insomnia.

  25. Hollywood sucks no matter what lying fake person they use or what schitty shows and what schitty movies they create. Regular hardworking people are sick of the stars arrogance. People are sick of their immoral attitudes, their hypocrisy and their hoity toity phoniness. Most of the stars are narcissistic psychopaths.

  26. Kevin Spacey is an incredible actor, you might as well put Jack Nicholson on the list because he is straight up a horny bastard who literally asks women who he meet if they want to play with him no matter their bf or husband is standing right next to them.
    What happened to Al Pacino and Robert De Niro, two of our greatest actors who are no longer in anything, Bruce Willis, Leonardo di Caprio Robert Pattison, Edward Norton, all no longer anywhere to be seen…or am I missing some awesome movies?

  27. WTF! He verbally harassed Jessica Walters? That's fuck all compared to what she did to poor old Clint Eastwood, she made his life a living fucking nightmare in play misty for me. 😉

  28. Nicki Swift is clueless. Every one of these actors except Barr is still a very busy working actor. Pick ANY name and look them up on imdb for some, you know, actual facts, and ignore this ridiculous channel.

  29. So…it's ok for everyone else in the universe to shit on Tara Reid, but her co-star does and he's being "mean"???

  30. Know as the show Megan markel isn’t on anymore ? The show ended lol no more seasons has nothing to do with her. Great show btw

  31. Taylor Lautner…. aka….Shark Boy….aka….Jacob Black, made $30 Million off Twilight , and added his name to the long list of celebrities who've boned Taylor Swift. He'll be okay.

  32. I swear that movie Abduction was good af….smh some people just don't know a good film when they see one

  33. What does being gay have to be acting to me that is racist what someone does in the bedroom is their business

  34. Spacey was just exonerated and charges dropped because the accuser lied. An amazing career and legacy ruined because of someone lie capitalizing on the me too movement

  35. Is it possible that Dustin Hoffman is doing less work these days because he's aged 82 (81 when this clip was made)? Something you failed to mention. Duh!

  36. Spacey is a fine actor and it is a pity to waste his talent. IF it is true he is morally deficient, it should be noted that did not prevent Donald Trump from becoming President of the United States of America. In fact, evangelicals applauded it. Maybe Kevin Spacey should curry favor with them. So long as he is against abortion, or pretends to be, they won't mind any other indiscretions, criminal or not. Kevin, see if you can get a gig as Christ. Get a line in about he who casts the first stone, and maybe one on turning the other cheek (though not the buttock).

  37. How do you have Zooey in this list? You don't even justify being an actors Hollywood stopped casting. If an actor is currently filming, how does that qualify as not being cast?

  38. Hearing Jeffery Tambor was giving a REAL ACTOR like Jessica Walter crap is just a bit much. She should have knocked his bald head into next century…What a doofus…
