Good actors who choose bad films/tv shows

See title.

For me, one that springs to mind is Giancarlo Esposito. He plays Gus from Breaking Bad, who is one of my favourite villains of recent years, and he is extremely good at seeming friendly, professional, and calm, whilst at the same time, being utterly terrifying when he is on screen, and so it shows that he is a skilled actor, but everything else i have seen him in has been terrible, and some of the things i have heard about that he is in have received terrible reviews.

I'm not trying to pretend he isn't hilariously bad in said shitty films

But he is a good actor, just terrible at picking films.

De Niro and Al Pacino are money grabbing bastards. The former a bit of a boring fart these days, and the latter an egoistic tool.

They've starred in enough good film to redeem themselves for life though.

I wouldn't go as far to say that, but he's one of these actors who I can't take my eyes off anytime he is on screen.

He makes the shitty films he is in watchable and goddamn enjoyable.

Especially the guy who played Locke. All I've seen him in is Lost and Millenium though.

Just so we're clear, you guys are counting Lost as a bad TV show right? Because it is

Ben was great too. I don't know if the guy that played him could really play any other character types, but he definitely was good at playing Ben.

I think both of those are in plenty of good movies... not to say they haven't played in really shitty movies before

Really? I think DiCaprio in particular has been picking his films excellently recently.

I really enjoy his stuff.


Actually, I would say that about both of them.
