- Melissa Joan Hart does have ABC Family show with Joey Lawrence. But she isn't popular in most Hollywood circles these days. She is a homophobe and she has made enemies in the music business because of her musician husband.
- R1 Yep. She's a real bitch. She made homophobic comments back in 2007 saying that Chris Daughtry had turned a song her husband co-wrote into a "fairy love song" and was gay. Then in 2008, her and her husband were being interviewed (I think at the Grammy's) while she was pregnant, and her husband said he didn't want their son to have a "sweet" name, and she just laughed.
When she announced she was a Republican and was supporting Romney, people were really done with her. The only people who watch her show on that two-bit channel are soccer moms.
- I'm just prepping my comeback.
- Whatever happened to Mena Suvari? She seemed to be positioned for a lengthy career after both being in the hugely popular American Pie franchise and having an acclaimed role in American Beauty, but she seemed to disappear completely after 2000.
- One hears little from Natalie Merchant.
- Is this her way of saying she loves gays?
- MJH is also vehemetly against Marriage Equality.
She wrote an essaylast election season about it.
- R6 Notice she doesn't say anything about liking them, just that not all Republicans hate gays.
She sure didn't like gays back in 2007:
- Mena Suvari guest starred on the first season of American Horror Story. I haven't seen her in anything else since then.
- The greatest star of her generation - don't you dare deny it:
- Staci Kennan
- R11 Yeah, whatever happened to her? Who would have thought her My Two Dads co-star Giovanni Ribisi would end up with the most successful career?
- Remember Mena Suvari had a lesbian phase? She was dating a super butched out older woman. I used to see her at the gym in Hollywood. She has faded into oblivion now though.
My friends friend is now dating Melissa Joan Hart's ex. So we looked up the ex, and I was surprised to see MJH is an outspoken Republican. Yuck.
- R11 - Staci was in that Patrick Duffy / Suzanne Sommers Brady Brunch ripoff. Then nothing.
- R14 That's been off the air for 15 years.
- Barbara Rush - so funny when she was Maude's best friend from high school and college, Bunny Nash. Great timing for comedy, charming, stylish...
- Barbara Rush is 86...
- R15 - yes.
- [quote}Barbara Rush is 86...
Where is Chris Meloni's ass these days ?
I think he has faded into obscurity, but I know that ass is somewhere, just beyond my reach.
- Meloni was on True Blood last year BUT he seemed bored and out of it.
- Mira Sorvino...loved her in 'Mighty Aphrodite.' But then she didn't do much of anything high profile.
- Monique...Oscar...then nothing
Your quick response means that my post was not warranted. Meloni has worked and his ass is accounted for.
I am glad in a way but now I have to think of someone else in obscurity.
Whatever happened to that guy Ross from friends?
(I understand that the OP does not mean where are the ex guest stars on the Love Boat...we want more current obscurity)
And another thing, Lauryn Hill, I loved her.
- Has Annette Funicello died yet?
I don't really approve of watching movie clips or scenes, but I admit that I sometimes watch Monique in the "who was gonna love me" scene.
"Precious" was one of the most depressing films I ever saw, but Monique was a fuckin magnet.
Where are you Monique?
- Mira is still active. She's retained her looks.
- Freddie Prinze Jr. used to have sort of a career, he must be a house husband now because I never see him.
Barbara Rush is 86 and still looks good.
- Dave Chapelle.
- Barbara Rush's daughter is an anchor on Foxnews
- Catherine Oxenberg
- Yes, Claudia Cowan R30.
- Kate Hudson and Julia Stiles. What happened?
- Julia Stiles was just in Silver Linings Playbook (in a small role though)
- Mike Myers?
- Ed Norton. Wasn't he once a critically acclaimed acotor?
- Harry Styles.
Three Years From Now
- God, MJH really looks rather frau-ish now.
- Um, Fiona Apple released one of the most critically acclaimed albums of 2012.
Norah Jones just sang at the Oscars and released an album last which got rave reviews.
- Jennifer Lawrence
Daniel Day Lewis
I haven't seen any of them since that telecast they did with Norah Jones. God, that must have been eight days ago!
- Brigitte Fonda owns this thread.
- Julia Stiles seems to have done something to her face.
- Does anyone remember when Hollywood was trying to make Mischa Barton happen?
- Julia Stiles is still working.
- Bridget Fonda is rumored to devoted her time to a child with special needs.
There were rumors that Mena Suvari was an S&M sub, and obeying a Master's wishes in all things might impact a girl's career.
- Matt Keeslar had the most beautiful furry chest on display in Steven King's TV miniseries ROSE RED. From 2002.
- r47, Matt Keeslar recently left show business and is now studying to be a nurse in Oregon, I think. There was a big thread here about it.
I loved him back in the 90s - damn he was cute - and I wish his career had turned out better. He was better looking and more talented than a lot of other actors who are successful.
- Delta Burke. Funny, funny woman, but I never see her anywhere. Loved the cast of 'Designing Women.' Great acting and writing. The show was one of the highlights of the past 25 years along with Seinfeld and Will & Grace.
- Orlando Bloom.
- Orlando Bloom and Josh Hartnett jointly own this thread!
- [quote]I don't really approve of watching movie clips or scenes
That's very odd.
Julia Stiles just did a Hallmark Hall Of Fame TV movie. She works, just nothing you'd watch. (And this after she did that ad in which she bragged about making "sick money" as a movie star.)
- Yeah, Josh Hartlett (sp) He was being groomed to be the next Paul Newman until they discovered he couldn't act for beans.
- Josh Hartnett and almost all of the teen actors from the late 90s/early 2000s are nowhere now.
- I think the day of "Madonna who" is very fast upon is....
- Delta Burke has completely disappeared. She was once one of the biggest tv stars in the country and always in the entertainment press.
- Seeing as how she's been in the public eye for almost 30 years, R55, I wouldn't hold my breath.
- Except those under 30 have not much clue who Madonna is these days.
- David Schwimmer. All the ex-Friends are still surprisingly, kicking except Ross.
- Link please, R58.
Otherwise you're pulling shit out of your ass.
They may not buy her records or go to her concerts, but they know, ever so vaguely, who she is. That is unless they've lived their lives in a convent or monastery.
- David Schwimmer made enough money off of Friends for 20 lifetimes, and apparently is just kicking back and enjoying it. Good for him. A pity that Aniston isn't doing the same.
- Schwimmer also directs.
- "Delta Burke has completely disappeared."
"Delta Burke...I never see her anywhere."
Are you people blind? Hell, Stevie Wonder could see her from the moon.
- Heather Locklear
- Neve Campbell sort of defines this thread.
- Seriously r60, can you be any more pathetic?
- Delta Burke currently resides in New Orleans and is a fan of the gay community. She frequently is called upon to be a celebrity judge for Mardi Gras crew, parades and events. She is well loved and adored.
- [quote] Neve Campbell sort of defines this thread.
Nope Orlando Bloom does
- Maybe Delta Burke just got tired of Hollywood and since she had enough money she said "fuck it" and left to live more of a private life. That does happen with some of them.
- The last time I read about Delta Burke was in 2008 when she was in a psychiatric ward.
- Karen Grassle.
- Julia Ormond and Gretchen Mol. Both actresses got such build-ups once upon a time
- Julia Ormond plays Megan's mother (Don Draper's mother-in-law) on MAD MEN - had some great stories last season (that bj with John Slattery!) and will be returning in April with the new season.
Gretchen Mol is on BOARDWALK EMPIRE now.
Heather Locklear had a recurring role on HOT IN CLEVELAND this past season.
Gerald McRaney was on SOUTHLAND last week - are he and Delta still married?
Karen Grassle does that infomercial for the step-in bathtubs...
- Neve was in Scream IV
- Dave Chappelle owns this thread. It's like he disappeared off the face of the earth.
- Dave Chappelle disappeared from tv after he got pissed at Comedy Central and had that little breakdown, but he's been doing stand-up pretty regularly since then. There's a rumor that he and Chris Rock might go on tour together soon.
- Sally Struthers and Hillary Duff
- Rachel Leigh Cook.
- Has Sally done anything since Gilmore Girls?
- R80 The last I heard she was doing local plays in Maine.
- Why are some posting about the whereabouts of older actors? Can't they give them the benefit of the doubt that they are retired or working on a reduce workload, since there are very limited senior roles.
I think this thread applies to more of the ones who are in that age bracket that is in high demand. Let's say 20-40s.
Just my two-cents.
- And possibly community service as well r81....
- Pamela Sue Martin
- Emma Roberts,
and Scott Wolf.
- Norma Desmond
- What ever happened to Valerie Perrine
- Schwimmer just starred in the critical acclaimed hit Detroit at Playwrights. There was a lot of talk about a transfer, and it still could happen next fall. I'd hardly say he's faded into obscurity.
- Delta seems to have her weight issues very much under control. But - at least in this 2009 picture - her face was very pudgy and way too stretched. Hopefully it has settled.

- [quote]Whatever happened to Mena Suvari?
[quote]She has faded into oblivion now though.
As has her American Pie co-star and fellow actor groomed to be a big star, Chris Kline.
Went with his hair
- A lot of the American Pie actors went nowhere. Finch? Last time I saw him was in Harold and Kumar go to Guantanamo. He looked pudgy. Stifler, Tara Reid, the kid who played Tara Reid's bf. I'd say Mena and the guy who fucked the pie are the best known.
- Delta Burke did an episode of the Sally Jesse Raphael Show where she was very open about her weight issues and the pressures of the entertainment industry. From what I recall, she basically had enough and walked away from the business.
I remember getting a little teary listening to her speak on that episode. She struck me as someone with a lot of integrity, kindness, and a strong sense of self. A true woman.
Many have forgotten how Delta was one of the first TV stars to openly challenge how women were being presented in the media. She pushed mainstream audiences to question how women looked on TV, and why they were being made to look that way.
Btw, here's a picture of her from her pageant days. Quite the southern beauty.
- Speaking of which, what ever happened to Sally Jesse Raphael?
- Speaking of the AMERICAN PIE cast, Shannon Elizabeth was the subject on 'What Not To Wear' recently and came off like such a bitch. She's trying to transition into a career as a film director/jewelry designer.
- Delta's ass must HUGE these days.
- Bonnie Bedelia. Christine Lahti.
- R96, Bonnie Bedelia is in Parenthood. She's still around.
- thora birch
- Happy Birthday, Daniel J. Travanti!
Smoking hot Italian Daddy in his day. Except for very occaisional stage work, he's pretty much retired.
It didn't help his post-HILL STREET BLUES career that he was known as a major prima-donna on the set.
- Casper Van Dien
- Casper Van Dien couldn't act worth shit, but he sure was pretty.
- [R46] I also remember hearing that rumor about Mena and a similar rumor about Leelee Sobieski being involved in the S&M scene.
- Casper mainly does B-movies for the Sci-Fi network these days.
Amazing ass, though.
- Christine Lahti is a regular guest star on Hawaii 5-0.
Some of you may want to search your picks in imdb before posting.
- R92, was she a Miss Valdosta Feed and Grain?
- Casper Van Dien married (princess) Catherine Oxenberg.
Oxenberg's mother is Princess Elizabeth of Yugoslavia.
- Dinah Manoff ...; come to think of it, her mother Lee Grant
- Mo'nique alienated a lot of people in Tinseltown after winning her Oscar, and now she's unemployable. Never cared for her, she's homely as sin and won an Oscar for a very one-note performance.
- the one and only PATTY DUKE owns this thread!!!
- Jared Padalecki
- Casper is STRAIGHT, he has 7 or 8 kids.
- Winona Ryder.
- [quote]Nope Orlando Bloom does
Ah, no...Orlando got raves for the Good Doctor, and next starring in The Hobbit Part 2.
- R104 - Casper's hindquarters are divine. I would eat it and pound out all night long.
R106 - Delta Burke was Miss Florida in 1974. She's from Orlando when Orlando was a smaller southern town before Disney changed the region forever.
- WTF is the Good Doctor? Who actually saw that?
- Delta looks like Cherry Jones in R89's pic.
- Rula Lenska
- Chad Allen
- Reading these names of the forgotten makes me sad.
Mo'nique fuckin played a concerto in that "one-note performance."
Retire that phrase and come up with some real criticism if you are capable.
- Sarah Silverman and Alicia Silverstone.
- The Disappeared Artiste Formerly Known as the Artist Formerly Known as Prince Formerly Known as Prince Rogers Nelson.
- MJH hates gays and is a Reagan nut. She's fucking insane. What a way to ruin my childhood.
- Jena Malone
- R20 Meloni has been busy filming. As well as the few episodes of True Blood that were on last year, since leaving SVU he has done 7 films, the first of which premieres at SXSW festival today. The two films which look like they may have some commercial legs are Man of Steel (Superman) and 42 (with Harrison Ford about the baseball player Jackie Robinson).
- Anna Maria Alburgetti!
Yvonne De Carlo!
(And any other actress/diva with a funny rhythmic name)
"I'll take 'What an Old Queen Would Say', Dick"
- I spotted MJH as a probably right-winger and homophobe a long time ago. Around the turn of the century they did a Lifetime Profile on her. And her mom outed herself as a homophobe, saying Melissa took her role as a teen role model serious, and would never play a lesbian junkie. It was an obvious reference to Ally Sheedy's acclaimed comeback role in High Art. It apparently really pissed MJH's mother off that a former teen actress had grown up to play a (*gasp*) lesbian. So that's where MJH gets it, the rotten apple didn't fall far from the tree.
- R128 Not surprised at all. Melissa Joan Fart can stay in obscurity with that shitty attitude of hers.
- Jena Malone has been in several things recently, and will be in the next Hunger Games.
- I OWN this fucking thread.
Phoebe Cates, preparing a dinner party for a dozen in my UES palace
- R131 - Yes Phoebe owns the thread.
- Oh, no, you don't, BITCH!!
- R129----there is nothing funny, absolutely nothing funny, about turning Hart into fart, you moron. Unless of course, you are in the 4th grade. Are you?
- Phoebe married well. She doesn't need to be pounding the pavement anymore.
- Yeah Monique's win was one of the most deserving wins in that category. A top 10 performance for sure. However her antics may have gotten her unemployable, plus Octavia Spencer (who seems like she is very well liked in Hollywood) has stolen her thunder.
Also, other star who got her career killed by one of the biggest bombs in film history is Geena Davis.
- Real criticism R121?
Ok. Your mother's pussy stinks!
Be careful what you ask for.
- R136 - Which bomb was Geena in?
- ^ Cutthroat Island which basically killed her career.
Such a shame, cuz she was/is a very good actress.
- Kate Beckinsale.
- Justine Bateman
- Debra Winger
a few examples of hot leading ladies for a second and next thing you know, they're playing frumpy characters or mother roles. sad
- Sandra has not faded into obscurity.
- R127, you missed Shields and Yarnell.
- Sandra Bullock, R142? That's some good shit you're smoking.
- Sandra is a terrible example. She has outlasted many of her contemporaries, made the movies she's interested in making, and remained commercially viable for 2 decades. Her movie with Melissa McCarthy is eagerly anticipated. She is bankable now when her old rival, Julia Roberts, no longer is.
Debra Winger, far from being the victim of Hollywood many on DL believe, has exactly the career she deserves. You cannot go around burning bridges and flaming colleagues for very long without consequences.
- Linda Fiorentino.
- John Cusack. His outsides finally started to match his insides and karma caught up with him. Oh well, he can live off his HUFF tv show/HUFFington post money....
- Linda Fiorentino. Good answer R147
- Delta Burke was supposed to do a TV pilot last year, but was injured on set and then the whole show got scrapped:
- Susan Powter, remember her: the short-haired tv self-help guru. Major figure of the mid-1990s.
La Femme Lolita
- Susan Powter had a major drug problem.
- Susan Powter declared bankruptcy and got fat.
- Given enough time, 99.99% of them.
- I wouldn't be surprised that Susan Powter declared bankruptcy. The last 10 yrs the only thing I know she had going was a website where she'd sell videos, and she conducted aerobics classes on a few of Rosie's lesbian cruises. She'd come out by then. But I'd have to see some proof on her being a druggy and getting fat again. Drugs aren't necessary to explain her downfall, she's simply a has-been.

She sucked Vincent Gallo's cock onscreen, was dropped from her agency and went from having a film career to being on a cable drama (a critically acclaimed cable drama, nevertheless).
- Wesley Snipes
- Parker Posey.
- Bridget Fonda retired after marrying Danny Elfman, who has an estimated 75 million fortune from his movie soundtracks. So she chose to give it up, she doesn't need the money and apparently didn't enjoy it enough to continue.
- Bridget was cool and a decent actress, but much props to her for not pursuing something she never liked to do.
- Tina Yothers
- Brian Bonsall
- R189 Wesley is in jail.

- Melissa J Hart was molested by a lesbian, that's why she hates gay.
If you got raped and then hated rapists, you'd be fine with that, I suppose?
- Being gay isn't the same thing as being a rapist, freeper moron.
- Chloe Sevigny guest starred on 2nd season of AHS....
- [quote]she was the IT girl of the late 90s and, poof, just like that she has vanishsed.
As technology advanced and became more user-friendly, and as users got more comfortable with it, and after the resolution of the Y2K re-programming necessities, the need for IT experts diminished. Also, the post 9-11 economy did not help.
- I think there was a guy named Chris in 'NSYNC. There was a black singer named I think Iqaz who had a big hit in 2010.

- R220, Gabrielle Union is a 40-year old black actress, and while she still looks 30, there are limited roles for black actresses. She's still popular, especially in the black community.
Gabrielle co-starred in the hit 2012 film "Think Like A Man". She's had an endorsement with Neutrogena for the last decade, and she's dating NBA superstar Dwyane Wade of The Miami Heat. Right now, Gabrielle's filming a new television show.

Julia has been on a few things.

- [quote]Vivica A. Fox is a black actress who is almost 50 years old and messed up her face with horrible plastic surgery. She used to be very pretty.
Fox also wasn't choosy in what she took, and she took a lot of garbage even when her career was in its prime. From A-Z list movies, failed TV shows, bad TV movies, and a lot of reality TV.
[quote]She sucked Vincent Gallo's cock onscreen, was dropped from her agency and went from having a film career to being on a cable drama (a critically acclaimed cable drama, nevertheless).
That and she had a drug problem and for a time didn't care that much about having a long term acting career. She cleaned herself up, but Brown Bunny and started taking her career more seriously, but the damage had been done. She auditioned for a lot of mainstream films, but was turned down.
