It’s the dream of many actors to land that one breakout role, the role that puts them on everyone’s casting list and springboards them to bigger things. Not all are so lucky though. There are many who were only held back by the popular role they became associated with, and were never able to rise to any notoriety above it. Like me. I’ll never escape the label of World’s Greatest Lover. Damn that coffee mug.

Here are seven examples of actors who couldn’t surpass the earliest successes.

Dominic West

Though The Wire was filled with breakout performances, Dominic West stood head and shoulders above the rest as the deeply-flawed Jimmy McNulty. He was instantly a favorite with viewers (and the ladies), but he’ taken some dicey roles since. For instance, his role in Johnny English Reborn, The Lactating Automaton, and as Jigsaw in Punisher: War Zone. McNulty deserves better! Hopefully John Carter will hel break him out.

Michael Richards

Back in the heyday of Seinfeld, Michael Richards could call you any name he wanted and you’d be rolling on the floor laughing. Then the show ended and his much-hyped starring vehicles Trial and Error and The Michael Richards Show bombed hard. Fast-forward a few years to his infamous comedy club scandal, and his star has all but sunk. If only you guys had gone to see Trial and Error, he would have never been in that club or gotten in that mess.

9 photosGet To Know Katrina Bowden

The long national wait is over. In news that is certain to give the guy who plays The Shermanator a semi, Shannon Elizabeth has agreed to return to the sexiness that is American Reunion. And thus, the final piece is in its rightful place. Filmmakers John Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg may relax and begin shooting scenes where Seann William Scott is tricked into eating poop that has been farted upon without the threat of a continuity lapse nagging at them.

Elizabeth will be made uncomfortable when she is gawked at by the also returning Scott, Chris Owens, Thomas Ian Nicholas, Jason Biggs, Eddie Kaye Thomas, Chris Klein, Eugene Levy, and Jennifer Coolidge. Hey, her eyes are up here, Coolidge. (Deadline)

9 Cinematic High School Sluts http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/9-cinematic-high-school-sluts/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/9-cinematic-high-school-sluts/#comments Thu, 16 Sep 2010 16:55:47 +0000 Defy Media Emma Stone is hot, which makes it kind of creepy to see her in a movie about high school. Luckily, she’s well over 18, so I don’t feel quiet as bad staring at her ass like it’s the Arc of the Covenant at the end of Indiana Jones. In her upcoming movie Easy A, Stone plays a girl who accidentally gets a reputation for being a slut. Rather than try to repair the damage, Stone’s character embraces the new image, turning it in to a profitable business by pretending to take the virginity of boys who can’t get laid on their own, thereby making them look less pathetic. While Stone’s character is only pretending to be a slut, over the years, Hollywood has churned out numerous characters who were the real deal. In honor of bad girls everywhere, here are nine of our favorite cinematic high school sluts. God bless you girls. Keep doing what you’re doing.

Grease (1978) – Betty Rizzo

Betty Rizzo (Stockard Channing) is the quintessential school-girl slut. She gets around, and doesn’t give a damn what anyone thinks. When she misses her period and thinks she’s pregnant after having sex with Kenickie, she tells him he’s not the father. The fact that he buys it speaks volumes about her reputation. But as Rizzo’s song clearly states, "There Are Worse Things (She) Could Do" than slut around.

The Sandlot (1993) – Wendy Peffercorn

Wendy Peffercorn (Marley Shelton) is probably the least obvious slut on this list. After all, the only time we see her is at the lifeguard stand. But you can tell by the way she spends her days rubbing oil all over her skin that she is more than familiar with the slutty arts. And the fact that she ends up marrying Squints, a kid who is like eight years younger than her, means she obviously got around.

Watch the following clip of Wendy pretending she’s not a slut.

Adventureland (2009) – Lisa P.

What would a comedy about an awful job be without the workplace slut? In Adventureland, Lisa P. (Margarita Levieva) fills the role nicely. In all fairness, when every co-worker you have wants to bang you, it’d be hard not to turn into a slut. Lisa P. holds herself together better than most. Still, you can’t walk around in slow motion wearing a shirt that says “Rides, Rides, Rides” and not expect to make this list.
