Some actors seemed to show a lot of promise in the late 90’s and early 2000’s, but all that potential seems to have totally faded away with time. Hollywood is notorious for building actors up, only to tear them down and throw them away, and these seven actors are perfect evidence of that. At one point, they were on top of the world. They were getting great roles, making good money and getting recognition for their work. Then, something changed. Here are 7 actors who were expected to make it big but didn’t.
7. Christian Slater
When Christian Slater came onto the scene in the ‘80s, he was compared to a young Jack Nicholson; however, unlike the Oscar-winning actor, his career dried up pretty quickly. Despite showing a lot of potential in movies like “Heathers,” “Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves” and “Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles,” Slater’s star began to fade in the late ‘90s thanks to some highly publicized brushes with the law.s_bukley / Shutterstock.com
