6 Actors That Only Had One Good Movie

Some actors, sadly, dabble in mediocrity. Whenever you see their name attached to a movie, you avoid it like the plague and move on to the next. But even those mediocre actors sometimes just absolutely nail a movie.

Let’s take a look at some mediocre actors that had one amazing movie.

Marlon Wayans – Requiem For A Dream

Marlon is mostly known for doing things like Scary Movie or White Chicks, so having him act in a more serious role is surely a weird sight to behold. He does it surprisingly well though and really proves in Requiem For A Dream that he can do the more dramatic acting too.

Steven Seagal – Under Siege

We gotta give credit where credit is due, but Under Siege is a good movie. You don’t need to expect much in terms of story, but at least this Seagal movie isn’t cringeworthy to watch.

Jessica Alba – Sin City

Jessica Alba was the actress that was mostly known for just picking the wrong movies. They all sounded good on paper but just turned out terrible. Sin City was the one exception to that rule.

Hayden Christensen – Shattered Glass

Despite Hayden being forever known as Anakin Skywalker, his best movie was Shattered Glass. The movie released in between episode II and III, but sadly the reception to the Star Wars prequels was so bad that it permanently ruined Christensen’s career.

Kevin James – Hitch

While Kevin James right now is mostly known for doing some typical “fat guy does stuff and falls down a lot” movies, he was actually decent in Hitch. We won’t claim the Will Smith comedy was a memorable movie, but at least it’s better than Paul Blart: Mall Cop.

Adam Sandler – Punch-Drunk Love

Well, Adam Sandler is probably the Nickelback of actors, but he did make a stellar movie with Punch-Drunk Love. The movie has him play a more serious role without trying to make 12-year-olds giggle, which worked surprisingly well for Sandler.
