Re: The worst performace in acting

I've had to go for Jack Black. While it's obvious he can deliver lines, I've seen some of his "serious" stuff, and I'm always waiting for a shirt-ripping and a "YEEEEEEEE-YAAAAAAAAA motherfuckin rigga-goo-goo" kinda moment.

Then there's the immortal line form King Kong. How he kept a straight face when he concluded that Beauty killed the Beast is beyond me

Worst actors though? Obviously you're never seen Hollyoaks, my friend

Re: The worst performace in acting

I can't believe you've got William Shatner, Hayden Panettiere, Jennifer Lopez, Sharon Stone, John Wayne, Ben Stiller, Katee Sackhoff, Jack Black, Milo Ventimiglia, Lisa Kudrow, Diana Muldaur, and Matthew Fox on a 'worst performance' list. They've all done some very nice work, IMHO. Granted, some people may not like that work...

For me, I'm torn between Adam Sandler, Rob Schneider, and Steven Segal. I think it will have to be Schneider - if he wasn't Adam Sandler's friend, his career would have probably ended by now.

Since it's here in the SFF forum, it's supposed to be about actors in SFF types of productions.

Re: The worst performace in acting

I voted for Sandler, although I wouldn't call his performances the worst in sci-fi, just really annoying. For totally bad, you've got to have something like the stars of "Manos": The Hands of Fate.

Have you been watching the same Heroes that I have? Both of them can be just AWFUL. Especially Hayden when she's trying to be all "bad ass."

Both of them have limited skills.

Re: The worst performace in acting

Firstly, some of these actors do not belong on this list. Additionally, I can name dozens of worse actors than any on this list -- even the horrid ones here. Also, you did not list the performances that were the "worst" for every actor; oftentimes, you just listed the actor and in at two instances didn't even both to look up their names! CGI characters, also, are not actors -- even, like Jar Jar, if they are based on an actor's physical movements -- and therefore shouldn't even be mentioned in this poll (But if they have to be, I didn't find the Balrog's performance in LOTR to be convincing at all!) And finally, Diana Muldaur is a woman, not a "girl".
