List RulesVote up the least relevant (but formerly big-deal) actors

Some of the greatest actors of all time have, in recent days, turned into a bunch of washed-up hacks that would be somehow become more relevant for receiving a Razzie nomination (or seven). No one debates that these actors have made huge contributions to cinema (many of them appearing in the best movies ever made), but recently they've become big stars in big flops. Need examples? Will Smith in After Earth. Harrison Ford in Cowboys & Aliens. K-19: The Widowmaker. Morning Glory. Just take anything starting with "starring Harrison Ford," and there's a good chance it'll stick on that list.

These has been actors once delighted audiences and now revile them. They're funny actors who made dramas and then weren't funny anymore (Jim Carrey); serious actors who starred in comedies and then tried to keep the joke going (Robert De Niro); and actors who ruined their credibility by being constant tabloid fodder (Angelina Jolie). Whatever the reason, these once great actors have become box office kryptonite and should no longer be commanding the multi-million dollar contracts of the highest paid celebrities in the world.

Which actors are no longer relevant in Hollywood? Which actresses are past their prime? When did big name celebrities become irrelevant? This list of actors who are no longer big celebrities is here to provide users a chance to vote for the celebrities no one cares about anymore. If you think there's a celebrity who has faded from the spotlight and isn't on the list, make sure to add them so other users can remember a time when people cared about the comedic stylings of people like Eddie Murphy (R.I.P., funny man).
