You have to feel bad for bad actors. NotÂ for very long, mind you, because they probably have more money and a better social life than you do. But still, there’s not another professionÂ in the worldÂ where people throw verbal grenades at someone for doing a poor (or even mediocre) job like they do when an actor craps the bed in a role.
And it’s incredibly easy to point to any actor working today and list at least one terrible performance they’ve givenÂ in their career. Everyone has off days, after all.
But it’s almost impossible to say that any particular actor has nothingÂ butÂ terrible performances. At some point, you just figure the law of averages dictates they’ll eventually have anÂ onÂ day. But some of them just never do.
They never do.
It honestly takes a weird kind of talent to never once give a solid performance in a movie, especially if you’re granted more than a handful of opportunities. Just the different combinations of directors, scripts, tones, and casts would make it difficult forÂ anyone to be terrible more than a few times in a row. These actors managed to buck trends, however, finding a way to do an awful job 100 percent of the time.
