When Genius Fails: The 10 Biggest Wastes of Talent
Here' one about some of the most talented people in the world falling flat on their faces.
Said digg commenter spinchange: "I was expecting something along the lines of the Enron guys, Gilder & The Fiber/Telco companies of the late 90's, Long Term Capital Management, etc...not really flopped movies."
We were actually going to include the Fiber/Telco companies of the late 90's, and their well documented fiscal irresponsibility, but we decided to go with a joke about a guy eating a trash bag full of popsicle sticks and shitting a scale model of the Spanish Armada instead.
Not Exactly a Stretch
Here' a ditty about movie roles that were so close to the actors real lives, that they barely qualify as acting. It' got one of the most insane Gary Busey videos we've ever seen, and we've seen pretty much all of them.
Some digg commenters got confused and thought the article was about typecast actors, and suggested people like Michael Cera and Steven Seagal (we're pretty sure Seagal doesn't go through his daily life mowing down waves of thugs with his bare hands, but if you have evidence to the contrary, we'd perform most sex acts in order to obtain it).
Digg user maracle 2 suggested Eminem as Jimmy (cough Eminem) Rabbit in 8 Mile Probably should have been on their.
What's It Gonna Be?
And finally, this video, one of the finest pick-up scenes ever put to film, will crawl inside your brain and stay there. If you don't want to spend the rest of the weekend singing lines like, "I want to get my dick in your britches" then you probably shouldn't watch it.
