Look for performers who are of a certain age but don’t have any recent or upcoming credits. It’s been two years since John Mahoney worked and Shelley Morrison is retired and was in a wheelchair for her “Will & Grace” stint last year, so I’m picking those two.

And even though he signed to do the “Toni Erdmann” remake, I’m still convinced Jack Nicholson doesn’t have much longer.
