slothian Posted September 6, 2010 Report Share Posted September 6, 2010 It occured to me that whilst some of the most immortalised people in music died at the height of their fame, a lot of people in the entertainment industry pass their peak and then do works that will never re-capture their glory days. So of all the actros/musicians/celebrities that you consider to have jumped their own personal career shark, at what point would you have someone end their career given that you know what they would then go on to do. For example, the one we (myself, Will & Chris) discussed in the chat room was Robin Williams: dc20willsave: Now Robin Williams, I think that One Hour Photo would be a good end point. slothian: that's the ting slothian: *thing slothian: would you allow all the films he made between Good Will Hunting/Insomnia and One Hour Photo? dc20willsave: Damn, that is a point. slothian: Or would you call time on his career earlier than One Hour Photo so that the overall average would remain higher? dc20willsave: Yeah, Good Will Hunting might be the better cut off date for Robin Williams. Patch Adams is a movie that should not exist in this world. Koete: Flubber is like getting a kick delivered to your career's balls. dc20willsave: Then was Bicentennial Man castration? Koete: Sounds fitting. So choose a celebrity and think of the best career cut-off date to ensure their legendary status. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
