[quote]Despite Fiorentino’s best efforts to cash in on her Men in Black success, her popularity waned in the late 1990s when she appeared in Dogma and flops like Ordinary Decent Criminal, What Planet Are You From? and Where the Money Is. Her last two film credits came in 2002’s Liberty Stands Still and in 2009’s Once More with Feeling as she focused more attention on documentary work on topics like autism, juvenile diabetes and Italian American discrimination, [bold]none of which have seen the light of day.[/bold]

Absolutely not trying to defend Linda Fiorentino, whose cuntitude I can believe. But I do wonder how much of her drama had to do with being involved with fucked-up men. She was abused and controlled by her ex-husband, the director John Byrum - they weren't actually married very long, but they had been together as a couple for years prior to marrying. Then later she was apparently involved with Anthony Pellicano, and then a dirty FBI agent...

Greta Scacchi still turns up all the time on British TV. Janine Turner is a batshit right-wing Xtian freak and has a radio show in Texas last that I heard. Tom Hulce is a theater director now.
What happens to a lot of B/C-list actresses who has brief careers is that they marry well and get out of the business. They may not even do it intentionally, but they find some rich guy, marry him, and find that it's easier to pop out babies and enjoy the money rather than go slog through auditions, so they just drift away ( a lot of them seem to get religious somewhere along the line too). I've also been surprised at the number of well-known actors who were Canadian and when their period of fame in the US passed, they just went home and started working there. Despite Canada's position as the US TV/film industry's favorite backlot, they actually produce quite a lot of programming for themselves that we never see down here.

The thing about Greta Scacchi is she was promoted as this sexy alluring young thing in the 80s. Well, good for her that she continues to act. There was a recent article where she said, people haven't given her a second look in the last 10 years which is okay with her. Unlike other actresses who go the plastic surgery route and try to look youthful to a scary degree or become reclusive, she's been aging gracefully and still works.

Greta Scacchi is an interesting actress, and she walked away from a big Hollywood career (turning down BASIC INSTINCT.)
Without being condescending or critical, she says she just didn't like being a film star in America. It just wasn't her scene. "It didn't suit me."

Greta Scacchi was an arthouse favorite in the mid-80s, and worked with a bunch of well-regarded foreign directors, in projects that were admired by people in Hollywood. They would want to cast her in their projects, and the studios would always nix it, because she wasn't a name. She got fed up with losing parts and decided to mount a commercial offensive in the late 80s/early 90s, which began with Presumed Innocent. She then made a few other stabs at mainstream movies but none of them were successes - and during one of them, she met Vincent D'Onofrio and began a very messy relationship with him that quickly resulted in a baby. Between the relationship drama and pregnancy, she quickly lost the momentum Presumed innocent had given her and that was pretty much that. She was offered Basic Instinct, but saying she turned it down doesn't mean much, because every actress and their cat was offered it and turned it down. Even Emma Thompson!
Later on in the 90s, after her relationship with Vincent D'Onofrio was over, she married her first cousin, and had a son by him. They're still married, and I would bet this relationship is part of why she has preferred to keep things lower-key. Incidentally, she was at one time slated to play Elio's mother in Call Me by Your Name.

Can Russo act, though? I just thought she was very much like Andie McDowell, a beautiful woman of a certain age who played the romantic interest of the male star. This sort of casting raised her (and McDowell's) profile quite a bit because they were in big films, but they really didn't have much to do except look pretty. Once she aged out of that 'type', the offers inevitably dried up because she (like McDowell) really cannot act.

I always thought of Russo as “the girl” in movies: wife or girlfriend to leading man, and not expected to be much more than that. In fact, one the film mags (not sure if it was “Premiere”, “Movieline” or “American Film”) mentioned Russo by name when it wrote about undemanding roles that are geared toward a certain level/tier of actress.

What do you mean "forgotten"? We know who Alison Lohman is; a lot of people know who she is. She isn't on magazine covers or written up much these days, but it's not like after you make major motion pictures, the memory of you is suddenly ERASED when you move on.
This term first grated on me when I was watching a MYSTERY AND SCANDALS episode about Linda Darnell from the 1940s.

R287 I agree that the writing can be very frustrating on OITNB and probably it's biggest weakness. The Judy King character was poorly defined by the writers and I'm guessing she was instructed to play the role in the odd way that she did. It was very different than her usual acting style, which is good. I wouldn't rank her among the best actresses on that show, though.
The acting on the show is very good for the most part, but the writing is so uneven, it often does the actors no favors. What I probably like best is that they really cast outside of the box and give actors that often overlooked by other casting directors.

Lots of celebs who have been dead for decades are still remembered. People still know who Clark Gable and Gary Cooper were, for example. Jack Benny was a huge star of his era but now nobody knows him unless they are elderly.

R297 Yes, I remember that too. We watched it in one of my English classes in high school.

Clark Gable and Gary Cooper starred in classic films that are still watched and discussed today. Benny did star in "To Be or Not to Be," but most of his other movies are forgotten today. He was huge on radio and later on television, but that was a very long time ago. Unlike Gable and Cooper, he was not a movie star.

Tv stars from Benny's era are still known today, like Ed Sullivan and Jackie Gleason.

Blair Brown has had a rather prolific career. One Trick Pony, Continental Divide (John Belushi’s next to last movie), Altered States, multiple Emmy nominee for Days and Nights of Molly Dodd. Played Jackie Kennedy in the miniseries Kennedy and a Tony winner. Hard to believe the above poster hasn’t heard of her.

I would say that, among people who know anything about showbiz history, Benny is as well remembered as Ed Sullivan, and even Gleason, although Gleason might have a bit of an edge because of "The Honeymooners," a show as iconic as "I Love Lucy."

R315 she married Danny Elfman in 2003 shortly after her last movie. He’s a big composer so I’m sure he’s got plenty of money. She probably just got tired of competing for roles in cutthroat Hollywood.

Several former actors are lawyers now: Teddy Dunn (Duncan from Veronica Mars), Staci Keanan (Nicole from My Tow Dads and Dana from Step by Step), and a few others I'm forgetting at the moment.

R317 Actually, Bridget Fonda was all set to guest star on The Practice but got into a car wreck on the Pacific Coast Highway. The car flipped and she badly damaged her back. She's lucky she was able to walk again. The incident seemed to have made her realize what was important and she shortly thereafter married Danny Elfman (Eric Stoltz would never put a ring on it) and had a child. She's never acted since the accident.
I do wish she'd come out of retirement one day just as her aunt Jane did as I always enjoyed her performances even if the movies themselves weren't always that great.

Maybe once her kids grow up and she gets bored, Bridget Fonda will come out of retirement and have a wonderful career again. She did have a knack for being really great in everything even if, as others have said, the films weren't always up to her level. That's a skill that can open doors for you and keep you employed forever.
What about Julia Duffy? I always found her hilarious, but she seemed to take a lot of heat after unsuccessfully replacing Delta Burke on Designing Women. It wasn't her fault. She was excellent, but the writing made her impossibly annoying and you couldn't relate to her. It's almost like they took Suzanne Sugarbaker and made her even more vapid and less human and gave it to poor Duffy.

That's what I keep hoping.
Bonus would be that she'd have skipped that whole awkward stage of an actress's career where she's too old to be the ingenue but too young to be the mother.
|by Anonymous||reply 326||07/21/2019|
Very true. Fonda somehow never got typecast as an ingenue, so I can't even imagine the kinds of roles she'd be playing these days. This is usually when the roles for an actress like her get really good.

Kristoffer Tabori - he was gorgeous when he was younger. His mother was the actress Vivica Lindfors so he inherited her acting chops so I'm surprised he didn't continue acting.

She started out as a kid actor in Return to Oz, Then in the 90's she was everywhere: The Craft, Things To Do in Denver When You're Dead, The Island of Dr. Moreau, The Waterboy, American History X,
Than POOF. My guess is that she was typecast as playing the dangerous/wacky/goth girl and when you're no longer a girl the roles dry up. I would love to see her in The Craft reboot though.
