We might love them on screen, but as it turns out, they are a hot potato behind the scenes, and you’d be surprised to find out how much and why these stars have a hard time finding a new role. So… let’s see.
If it seems as though Chris Hemsworth hasn’t been in the spotlight lately, you would be right. Unlike the other actors on this list, however, the reason isn’t due to any fault of the actor but due to a contract, he signed to play the superhero Thor in a multi-year contract.
Due to the Marvel cinematic franchise churning out a film or two every year, the actor has been busy portraying the Norse god on screen since 2011. As such the Australian actor has had little time to branch out. Adding to this is the fact the actor deciding to relocate back to his native land, compounding the difficulty in finding roles with studios located in the United States.
If you haven’t seen Jim Carrey in a while, it’s because the actor has more recently been shelved by studios due to his off-set behavior. After starting his career in comedic roles, the actor showcased his versatility in more serious films earning critical acclaim including multiple Golden Globe awards for Best Actor.
However, due to more controversial, if not polarizing stances on vaccinations, gun control, as well as his political position. As such, with his recent films being box-office bombs, studios fear to cast the actor as they fear it will alienate large groups of their audience.
