It's tough to be consistently great as an actor. Sometimes, you've just got to get paid. While some Hollywood actors have a stinker of a movie role hidden among a distinguished body of work, others have really gone downhill in the last few years. Once great actors who now make bad movies range from action stars, to people considered among the best actors of all time - but they've all earned a place on this list with a string of seriously bad films, tarnishing their sparkling reputations for cinematic excellence.

The stars on this list are all actors who stopped making good movies and haven't managed to really recover. One failure leads to another, and before long, a one-time big draw at the box office has become an afterthought, a performer who is either resigned to delivering dreck to his fans, or an aging thespian who has all but given up.

It can be hard to see what's happened with some of these good actors who stopped making good movies, but with some it's quite easy to pinpoint a specific film that marks the point at which their career soured. Vote up the actors you think have really taken a turn for the worse, and vote down those who you think are still turning in great performances.
