When it comes to working in Hollywood, the phrase “Here today, gone tomorrow” rings very true. Some actors manage to get a plethora of buzz just to simply let it die down. We take a look at five actors that had so much potential when they burst onto the scene.

’90s “It” Girl

In the ’90s, Gretchen Mol was gaining steam with roles in RoundersCelebrity, and The Thirteenth Floor. Following 2007’s 3:10 to Yuma, Mol took some time to focus on her new child, Ptolemy John. With her second child being born in 2011, the big roles unfortunately didn’t come in for her. Mol did land an awesome gig on HBO’s Boardwalk Empire and earned a supporting role in Manchester by the Sea.

A Four Word Phenom

Haley Joel Osment spooked everyone with the phrase “I see dead people” in The Sixth Sense. The former child actor kept the momentum going with roles in A.I. Artificial Intelligence and The Jungle Book 2. Osment put his acting career on hold in order to attend New York University. While he’s not the lead of any major films, he’s earned fans in another form of entertainment. Since 2002, Osment has been the voice of Sora in the Kingdom Hearts video game franchise.

Teenage Drama Queen

Lindsay Lohan was one of the biggest teen stars in recent memory. Taking over both the acting and music worlds, she was almost unstoppable. Unfortunately, her biggest threat was herself. Various incidents caused Hollywood to not take their chances on her anymore. Nowadays, her acting appearances are far and few.

Lifetime

Just Joshin’ Ya

It was hard to not find ladies swooning over Josh Hartnett in the early 2000s. The Minnesotan took over the box office with roles in Pearl Harbor, Black Hawk Down, 40 Days and 40 Nights. Sadly, he hasn’t been a part of any box office hit since 2007’s 30 Days of Night. After 15 years, he made his return to TV in Penny Dreadful in 2014.

The Clock Is Ticking

Elisha Cuthbert landed the role of a lifetime as Kim Bauer on the hit Fox series 24. During that stint, she was the lead in The Girl Next Door and House of Wax. Both films, unfortunately, didn’t earn enough to ensure Cuthbert’s status as a box office star. Immediately after leaving 24, Cuthbert stuck to TV with Happy Endings, which was cancelled after three seasons. Recently, she joined the main cast of Netflix’s The Ranch.
