10 Actors With The Worst Agents In Hollywood

Some actors have all the luck. Some get selected from many to star in a major movie and be the face of a future franchise in some studio blockbuster that will yield millions of dollars and breed sequels and spin-offs. That fame in turn will allow them to do pretty much whatever they want, including small dramatic films showcasing their real talent. For example, with Disney’s Marvel Universe, it seems they breed actors in some laboratory in Hollywood, churning out hunky action star (Chris Evans) after hunky action star (Chris Hemsworth) after hunky action star (Chris Pratt). They’re all named Chris, by the way – they are interchangeable. But they can go off and have fun and do something different after enduring such huge productions.

Not all are so fortunate. Perhaps it’s because of reputation or attitude, perhaps its due to a certain disinterest and unwillingness to compromise, and maybe it’s just dumb luck, but there are plenty of talented actors whose skills are wasted and presence underutilized. Meanwhile, some get their big break and then fail to make the right choices when given the opportunity. It’s not simply about navigating the mainstream film world and jumping back and forth to indies. Actors like Bill Murray and Tilda Swinton have appeal on both sides of the coin, able to do what they want without sacrificing art. There has to be something else that is keeping worthy actors at bay.

So let's consider those interesting screen presences that are being wasted with cliche stories and banal films. Those that gave glimpses of greatness and show inherent charm, but aren't being utilized to their best potential. Their choices are bad, and thus the following actors must have bad agents, because they are much better than the work they are doing, and they should be more popular. Here are ten actors in Hollywood who clearly have the worst agents – and need to fix that, because they can do so much better.

10 Colin Farrell

9 Liam Neeson

8 Angelina Jolie

7 Jennifer Aniston

6 Clive Owen

5 Cameron Diaz

4 Gerard Butler

3 Forest Whitaker

2 Johnny Depp

1 Nicolas Cage

Maybe it’s that he doesn't have a bad agent, maybe it’s just he wants to only do bad movies. Or maybe he just wants money – yeah, definitely money. Whatever is it, Nicolas Cage puts out a solid four or five awful films in a row before maybe doing something different and interesting. Just look at the last couple years and see how interchangeable and terrible these films are: Gone, Left Behind, Rage, Drive Angry, Seeking Justice, Stolen…what are these? They are so similar – someone close to him is either murdered or kidnapped and he snapped and goes on a rampage. But then he does things like Joe and Kick-Ass and you remember he can be good when he wants – he won an Oscar! What is going on with Nicolas Cage?
