I'm going to link you to a website that will be CRITICAL to making videos like these in the future so you will stop getting things HORRIBLY WRONG . . . . . www.imdb.com Every single actor/actress in your list is STILL WORKING IN HOLLYWOOD RIGHT NOW, many of them with projects dating past 2020 for release dates.

Orlando and Rupert need to come back. Also to all of those in the US, there is an Orlando Bloom movie being released next Friday in theaters. It's called the Shanghai Job. I've seen it thanks to someone I know and it's quite good...if you can get passed the obvious throwback to Legolas as he is blonde in the film

British English sounds soooo much better than American English. A least to me as a German. Even your industrial city hools sound more charming than most Americans.

Sorry but it's got to be said, with the exception of Liz Hurley who couldn't act herself out of a paper bag, this list id a pile of SHIT. Clive Owen is another useless actor who shouldn't be imposed on the world anyway, but the otherss still have films in production or are on stage (it's what actors do after all) or they're tied up with TV series. Absolute crap list.

Bloom cast as Paris in Troy. Too much of a wimp to embody the role of such a historical figure.

Butler blew it playing the phantom--he cant sing and pretty much a one dimensional actor.

Wrong information. Whoever made this video does not understand how the movie industry works. A lot of these actors are currently working. This is stupid information.

Rupert Grint was self imposed. After the HP series he wasn't sure he liked acting that much. He didn't want to give it up completely, but he'd been working since he was 12. He said in an interview that he fell back in love with acting while doing an off West End play, and is trying to stick to more independent stuff.

I only liked Michael Sheen in one movie Underworld rise of the Lycans, only film I thought he was sexy as hell in , my favorite werewolf As for Orlando bloom I have been in love with him since he was Legoals in LOTR and I think he was very good in the Kingdom movie. The only reason I watch the Pirate movie is for him ( not really Johnny ) I still like Orlando , I still think he is in great shape and would love to see him in good movies again , I think he his still a good actor, maybe he can try his hand at tv or cable. Hollywood is full of BS no talented actors right now and I think verybody on this lise ( accept Liz hurley she was never that good) are better actors than what is out there now. They deserve great scripts.

A lot of these actors just can't act. They got roles in movies primarily because they were in the right place at the right time and just happened to perfectly fit a particular role. They have no breadth of skill. Also, acting is a cut throat industry. Lots of people want to do it and there aren't that many roles. It just takes one flub and then you're gone.

Orlando Bloom recently had a minor but rather noticeable role as the arrogant, egotistical, narcissistic boss of Blake Lively's character Emily in A Simple Favor.

1. Hollywood is becoming shittier every year. 2. Emma Watson can't act. She's awful. 3. Clive Owen should have been James Bond, instead of D. Craig.

Gerard Butler isn't British, he's Scotish. There is a difference even if both come from the UK. But yes, he's been playing in multiple movies a year. Many are big budget. It'd be cool to see him more, but he's definitely getting casted. Orlando Bloom seems to be sticking to smaller roles. Two major franchises probably scared him off, or exhausted him. LoTR/Hobbit and Pirates are massive, and take a ton of energy. Not many actors do multiple franchises.

Funnily enough Orlando Bloom recently reprised his role as Legolas but not in a Middle earth product but rather in AMCs The walking dead as the wife of King Ezekiel.

this list is odd and some of them are untrue I think the title is also misleading "Hollywood won't cast" really???
Rhiannon Carney (1 month ago)
Hollywood has habit of pigeonholing people. It also has a very limited attention span and not a very forgiving nature. So, one minute you are on top but if you don't expand, say the wrong thing, or just do too many films in the same franchise Hollywood tends to yawn and say "Goodbye and maybe goodluck come back when have forgotten what you said, filmed, or did that we either got sick of or didn't like".
rayneoftera (1 month ago)
Orlando Bloom was never a great actor, mediocre at best and serves to show the key difference between men and women in Hollywood and men and women in general. Men can't rely on their looks to get as far in the world as women can. Though not as bad as Megan fox, I often liken the two together because they have both made it on their looks but as terrible as an actress Megan Fox is....she is still getting roles. Why, most of the top execs in Hollywood are men, men want sex more than women and will do more for it than women, which involves casting young and talentless but attractive starlets/actresses in movies. Where as the men, not so much, not many female execs as there are men and most of them won't go as far as the men will for sex. In other words men have to make it more on their acting ability than women.

Hollywood is just a steaming pile of SJW nonsense, these days. So many movies are all FX, with poor scripts and worse characterisation.

Perhaps this should be UK actors, as Catherine Zeta-Jones is Welsh, and Gerard Butler is Scottish, so the title is kinda misleading

Most of these actors had their "hot" phase and were given chances with leading roles and when those failed to deliver either financially or critically, were dropped from Hollywood for other talents. Orlando Bloom, Liz Hurley and Gerard Butler never proved they were strong actors, while Kate Beckinsale and Michael Sheen weren't able to support films financially in lead roles. Hugh Grant had that embarrassing prostitute scandal which damaged his reputation, while Catherine Zeta-Jones' bipolar, tongue cancer-causing, "difficult" status (according to Rob Marshall after replacing her with Nicole Kidman in "Nine") damaged her's.

I think the trouble is that they KEEP casting Gerard Butler. I saw a preview for "Hunter Killer" when I went to see "Halloween", and I thougth, "Seriously? After Geostorm, they're still giving this guy jobs???"

When women are known for movies reliant on their sex appeal and they are now in their late 40's and 50's, it's not really that surprising that the roles that they were previously offered have dried up - but there is still plenty of work provided they don't look like typical Hollywood vamps.

With exception of a couple, most of these actors are "one trick ponies" Hurley sex siren, Winston fat hard man, Bloom moody cunt. Don't think Butler should be there seeing he's, literally, just brought out a movie a long side Gary Oldman.

Hollywood has become so bereft of actual talent and creativity that it just isn't relevant anymore. These actors are better for being gone from it.

S. L. (2 months ago)
Let's face it, Orlando Bloom is just not that good an actor. He was the "It" poster boy back then, but hey, even men age too, and audience don't look too kindly on them either, it would seem. Same goes with Hugh Grant. Then again, you can say the same from this side of the The Atlantic. Just look at how Owen Wilson. I don't think Clive Owen is down and out though. Back then, I swear I saw it coming, with Owen as the James Bond pick. Too bad, Daniel Craig got the job (though he's not too shabby at it). He'll be back.
DAVID HEELS (2 months ago)
Micheal Sheen will definitely be back simply because he has oodles of talent. And Hugh Grant is better now than he ever was.

In the movie "I am Legend" I heard in an interview that Will Smith did not want to do sequils to the movie.  He felt that in doing sequils they lose the meaning that the original film presented.  He didnot want it to become like other sequils; for example "I am Legend 6" and that is why Will Smith wanted to end this movie the way he did.  I am sure that this film would have been a good 2nd movie.

Ray Winstone is only any good at playing 'ard men from the East End. His attempts at other accents are laughable and he should count himself lucky that he works at all. Michael Sheen on the other hand is an amazing actor and his career seems pretty fine. Whoever wrote this is ill-informed...

They need to put Orlando in a hard, R rated crime movie. He’s beefed up in recent years. I could see him as a super sexy villain or anti-hero. Fake tattoo, some wicked violence and you’d have a great leading man again.
