Bottom 5 Actors
1. SHIA LABEOUF
He’s on a ridiculous roll of being in awful, and I mean awful, movies. Starting in 2008, he has been in (chronologically) Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Eagle Eye, New York I Love You, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, and Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Now he was in some bad movies before that run, but he has truly taken suckiness to a whole new level.
2. HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN
This guy almost singlehandedly (I say almost because, well, George Lucas was there) destroyed one of the most beloved film franchises. Do I really need to say anything else about him?
3. PAUL WALKER
This guy is lucky that the top 2 on this list have been in a lot more high profile films than him. Even if when his movies are halfway decent (which for the most part they aren’t) he’s still terrible in them. I almost convinced myself to put him at number 1 but his impact is quite a bit less than Mr. Labeouf’s or Mr. Christensen’s. He’s like a younger version of Keanu Reeves, only he’s in less cool movies.
4. KEVIN COSTNER
Originally, I wasn’t going to include him on this list. Then, I saw Waterworld on one of the Cinemax channels and was reminded of how terrible movies can be sometimes. Just for being in that film Costner deserves to be on every worst actor list ever made. I don’t care if he was in Field of Dreams or not.
5. NICOLAS CAGE
He’s crazy. He’s absolutely crazy. I’m not going to sit here and say that Nicolas Cage is incapable of putting on a good performance. He clearly has before with films like Leaving Las Vegas and Raising Arizona, but the choices he’s made since, I’m going to say 2005 with The Weather Man being his last good performance, has turned him into a joke. I do have to say that he is definitely the most watchable of all of these actors, including the ones who are about to be in the honorable mentions.
Gerard Butler, Ashton Kutcher, and Channing Tatum
