Blanks was never a star all B movies Jet Like retired from major roles , Snipes started doing all B movies well before his tax issue, Speakman was only in one movie anybody's heard of just like Dudikoff

Don't recall that Erika was a Martial Artist,( know she did Charles in Charge then Baywatch,after she did Under Siege(She was a playmate in a July PlayBoy for real(they even had that issue in the film,she went by another name). Where is James Ryan from Kill or be killed ,then Kill and kill again. I would have to research Gary Daniels, Daniel Bernhardt, Casper Van Dien(Starship troopers), Dean Cain(was superman in "Lois and Clark;adventures of Superman later the owner of the Montecitto in "Las Vegas" the series:with Josh Duhammel ) in way of Martial Arts.

Billy Blanks is the man! Him and Cynthia Rothrock are my top two favorites.

The entertainment industry is a very hard, impossible & rough game to get in. I should know, I've tried for about 10 years & I wasn't getting any where with it. So,.....I was done with it.

Billy Blanks just didn't have the looks of a leading man.

All I gotta say is if Scott Spekeman was typing, he'd make a great Batman. Perfect Weapon was a super fun watch. Action Jackson was my movie!

Why Hollywood Won't Cast These Action Stars Anymore? The question has not been answered.
mike losinger (24 days ago)
Blade 1 was perfect.
Worldwise Now (25 days ago)
I don't think anyone in this video falls into the list of "Hollywood won't cast these stars anymore". Most of them have enjoyed great success both before and after their time onscreen. And I think pretty much everyone knows that what happened to Wesley Snipes was complete bull. Loved the Perfect Weapon. I saw it at release and I was forever puzzled as to what happened to Jeff given how successful it was. Jet Li is an A list action star, its quite regrettable that a health issue has taken such a toll on him.

gareth rees (25 days ago)
A action Jackson franchise 😢 could have been awesome and could have made Carl the 80s action star up there with Schwarzenegger and Stallone and wills such a missed opportunity

The perfect weapon!!! That movie is classic

Carl Benji Photography (28 days ago)
Totally untrueth!!! Wesley Snipes, Jet Li & Carl Weathers = Same fight!!! They're really good actor & they will always inspired actors to be better in their job. I like those actors & I will inspired my self by them to be a better actor. Thx, but no thank you.

To think this narrator could tell us why these actors fell out, one would have to assume the narrator has very secret info including secret societies and intelligence agencies.

Dudikoff will always have his place in the pantheon 🏛of Action Fflicks....”American Ninja....” which is timeless and Forever dope along with “Avenging Force” both with the late great Steve James....
John Connor (1 month ago)
HEy HEY HEY, AVENGING FORCE WAS NO SCHLOCK FILM!!! It was one of the first to take on the most Dangerous game story, in a modern setting. Way B4 Van Damme's Hard target of Ice-T's Surviving the GAME

Where’s the why
deamon54 (28 days ago)
Vanity will surely be missed,after "Action Jackson" and "The Last Dragon"(what happened to Taimak)? Billy Blanks! It's Tae-bo(s)tay(say the "s" to yourself)-bo, not Tai-bo(tie) note the difference!! Where is James Ryan among others. Tae kwon-Do(Korea) to Tai Chi Chuan (China/Taiwan/Thailand).
Robert Ostler (1 month ago)
I liked Jeff Speakman. He was a good martial artist and a ok actor. Sucks he got lost in the mix
Also, why did this video seem very rushed XD like the creator wanted to go somewhere really bad while editing
I keep forgetting its 2019 xD all these 2018 videos still make me think they're new

Perfect Weapon is a classic action movie. Still in my top 5 and still gets watched.
I miss some of those old martial arts films from the 90s! Jeff speakman was one of my favorites! Along with Don The Dragon Wilson and Cynthia Rothrock! I watched them all the time! I still do today if I can find them! Movie channels don't really show those anymore!

"Blade wasn't perfect, but..." At the time the movie came out, it was the best movie based on a Marvel property. It's easily one of the best superhero films of the 90s.

Action Jackson was awesome. Carl Weathers was a real shame because there wasnt a black action hero in those days. I thought he did it too well.
WelfareChrist (2 months ago)
Carl Weathers is still around, I see him in side roles all the time!
dankehedies (2 months ago)
Wesley Snipes was too good and surpassed human movies
Not sure how to feel about this one. Action stars are like shooting stars; they blaze brightly for a short time. Nobody wants to see a geriatric action hero so of course their careers are limited. This video almost makes it seem like they are failures for not being flexible enough to take on other roles. As ridiculous as I think it would be to see Carl Weathers play the role of Sully, I think it’d be equally ridiculous to see Tom Hanks star as Dillon alongside Arnie in Predator.

Jeff Speakman is still the head of a karate discipline that has 50 schools worldwide. So he's probably doing well for himself.

Considering some of the names on this list, I would like to have a clear definition of "Hollywood" first. I don't remember Michael Dudikoff ever having starred in a film by any of the major Hollywood studios.

Why? because they don't sleep with children
Joseph Murray (2 months ago)
I think the title of this video is misleading. There's hardly any why they won't get cast anymore, more like just a history rundown on what they did.

So.... why won't Hollywood cast these action stars anymore? lol This channel is lost. Unsubscribed.

Authenticity is one of many reasons that the 80s was the greatest era. Practical effects and real martial artists.

Jet Li just got old. After a few times, you realized his skills were not what we thought they were, they just looked more impressive next to people who were not fighting.

Jeff Speakman was awesome. Too bad he didn't become the big action star he could have been.

I loved Action Jackson and the perfect weapon growing up.

Another useless completely bullshit list. Jet Li had been quite ill and while he is doing better he rarely performs and instead is focusing on health and family. You guys are such jerks.
