[Blind Gossip] When an actor wins an Oscar, you would think that it would practically guarantee him a lifetime of good roles in good films. Not necessarily.
This actor is best known for his role in a classic sports-related film. He won an Academy Award over ten years ago. He thought he was set for life. Well, he does work regularly, but he has chosen films and roles that have resulted in more Razzie nominations than Oscar nominations.
He thinks that his latest TV project is going to be the one to put him back on top. One director has his doubts:
Yeah, I saw it. It’s not a great performance. He overplayed it. He’s trying too hard. It’s distracting. Once you don’t believe he is the character, you can’t get that back. It’s too bad, because this really could have been the one [project] to propel him back into the spotlight.
If he’s looking for the spotlight, perhaps he can hit the campaign trail with that Presidential Candidate with whom he has a close connection?
[Optional] Do you think he is believable as the character in his latest TV project?
