These actors did their best, but it really wasn’t enough
20 Characters Who Sucked Despite the Awesome Actors Playing Them

Thanks to whatever chaos god granted the resources to build the world’s most glamorous industry in the middle of a desert, Hollywood just loves to waste a good actor. We’re not talking about hiring an Oscar winner for a split-second cameo, which can be fun under the right circumstances. More like casting a once-in-a-generation talent to play a character that has the depth of a potato chip or, occasionally, literally just sits there.

“IMO, the ultimate example of this is Tommy Lee Jones playing Two-Face,” Redditor thebigeverybody recently lamented. “I can’t remember a more talented actor having less to work with, and it was disorienting to watch someone famous for nuance cackling for 90 minutes.” They then asked r/Movies for more examples of “incredibly skilled actors with characters so flat, there’s nothing to work with,” and Reddit came back with a whole lot of women doing nothing, charisma poured down the drain and some of the worst dialogue to ever disgrace the screen.
