Terrible Actors Who Need To Stopby RandomFlux | created - 5 months ago | updated - 4 weeks ago | Public
There are celebrities and then there are actors and too many wannabe celebs are taking acting jobs away from people with talent.
This is a list of people who really need to find a new profession because let's be serious, they suck.
1. Tom Cruise
Actor | Top Gun
In 1976, if you had told fourteen year-old Franciscan seminary student Thomas Cruise Mapother IV that one day in the not too distant future he would be Tom Cruise, one of the top 100 movie stars of all time, he would have probably grinned and told you that his ambition was to join the priesthood. ...
This guy hasn't changed his expression since 1980. He's always just Tom Cruise playing at being an actor. He's absolutely TERRIBLE and he needs to stop.
2. Tara Reid

If ever there was a case of casting-couch fame, this is it. There is no other way to explain how she keeps getting work.
Actor | Star Trek V: The Final Frontier
William Shatner has notched up an impressive 50-plus years in front of the camera, displaying heady comedic talent and being instantly recognizable to several generations of cult television fans as the square-jawed Captain James T. Kirk, commander of the starship U.S.S. Enterprise.

His girdle deserves all the awards. This guy is a megalomaniac, not an actor.

One trick pony. He's been pushing the same shtick since SNL and it's not funny. Neither is his ridiculously over the top ego and his bad temper.
Actor | Joe Dirt

The perpetual 'side character' who thinks he made it on his own and not because of who his friends are. Plays the same guy in every production.

You know you're in trouble when you use a head shot from 20 years ago. Not that it matters. If we're lucky we won't see this guy after Supernatural ends. I'm pretty sure he plays a chair or something.
11. David Caruso
Actor | First Blood
His low-keyed intensity, deep-voiced somberness, pale skin, puffy-eyed baby face and crop of carrot-red hair are all obvious and intriguing trademarks of TV star David Caruso. A hugely popular item in the 1990s as a result of a smash crime series, he got way too caught up in all the hoopla ...
If you've seen this guy in one scene, you have witnessed his entire range. Mannequins have more talent.
Actress | Evita

Having this guy in a film is like casting "Woody" the doll from Toy Story. He's got one expression and he talks when you pull his string.

Who decided this guy could act? Seriously? He's terrible. He plays the exact same person in every role. Compare his 'Marc Antony' to Brando and then tell me I'm wrong. He sucks.
