They either have good agents, good connections, and/or good reputations (i.e., hard workers, talented, respected, not divas) AND they bring in good ratings.

Damn, r2 beat me. She's awful on that "Hot in Cleveland" I don't understand why some actors and entertainers just don't retire. Kudos to Linda Ronstadt for doing it.

Marion Cotillard. I hate it when she talks; she has a very annoying voice.

Me three. If they need a wacky grandmother, try someone else, maybe Cloris Leachman.

Reading comprehension not your thing, R5?

Marcia Gay harden and CCH Pounder are excellent dramatic actresses who'd rather be working than waiting for an elusive Hollywood script for a woman in her 50s. Maybe that's the reason? In any case, I'd rather see them than untalented fresh faces.

I love most of the people listed.

I love Sela Ward, and Cloris is already a wacky grandmother on Raising Hope.

R11 - Sela had a good run on House as a recurring character.

My favorite of those listed is CCH Pounder, as Mrs Fredrick on Warehouse 13.

I will watch CCH Pounder and Marcia Gay Harden in just about anything. They are great character actors who, luckily for me, get lots of work.

Mark Harmon's been lucky, talented, or well liked enough to land at least two long running TV series. He makes the occasional TV movie or theatrical release. He's no media whore, either. It's not as though he's a Kardashian.

Acting is a job like any other, OP. How would you feel if you showed up for an interview, and someone on the panel said, "This guy's had eight jobs in 20 years. I'm tired of him being recycled in this industry"? And didn't care how well qualified you were?

Personally I get more tired of the big screen, lead actors who keep getting foisted upon us regardless of box office success, like Aniston or Paul Rudd.

Mark Harmon looks like he's been brought back from the dead.

Marcia Gay Harden can do no wrong in my book. She's a fantastic actress and I always like seeing her in tv shows and movies.

[quote]What's Mark Harmon done lately?

Harmon's the star of CBS' NCIS. It's been on for years.

I'm sick of Natalie Zea (The Following, Justified, Californication, Dirty Sexy Money). Varied shows but the one thing they have in common is that she's annoying in all of them.

I just read somewhere (Forbes list, maybe?) that Mark Harmon made more money last year than Brad Pitt.

Who wouldda thunk? Yet it's always when I read things like this that I realize Manhattan isn't the center of the universe and most of the rest of the country IS watching those procedurals - which do top the ratings. It's not necessarily the people who get the most breathless red carpet coverage who make the most money.

Mark Harmon is the star of the highest rated show on television.

Mark Harmon looks like absolute shit

$38 million a year

Mark Harmon is crying all the way to the bank.

by Anonymousreply 2603/08/2013

So, he still looks like absolute shit.

Shove him in the hole already and cover him up.

Jimmy Smits was very different on Dexter as compared with West Wing or LA Law.

JHO...oh, not a TV actor, she should just go away and take her homely kids with her.

by Anonymousreply 3503/10/2013

No he wasn't, R34. He talked like he has two tongues in his mouth in every series he's ever been in. And you forgot three other shows he mangled, Cane, Outlaw, and Sons of Anarchy.

by Anonymousreply 3603/10/2013

R36 - His characters were very different and he spoke differently on WW.

by Anonymousreply 3703/10/2013

Sela Ward is the reason I stopped watching CSI: NY. I like her and all, but I really liked Melina Kanakredes' character Stella on the show. Sela is too glam and not believable as a crimefighter.

by Anonymousreply 3803/10/2013

I rest my case.....


And I'm not talking about Pam.

His sons are nothing to look at, either.

Very dweeby looking

Does Harmon wear a wig?

Some on the internet are claiming that.

The very best description I have ever read of Jimmy Smits, the most inexplicably recycled actor in the history of television.

"Talks like he has two tongues in his mouth." I bow down before your descriptive powers, R36.
