I was surprised to see Brendan Frasier playing a brutal prison guard on SHOWTIME's THE AFFAIR. What the heck happened to this former heartthrob? Yes, his looks have faded but is there more to it? Is he just not a very good actor? More often it is drugs or being over thirty-five for women that ends a career. Remember Geena Davis? I think these movie franchises are destroying a lot of careers. Robert Downey, Jr. used to be considered a fine actor until he took on SHERLOCK and IRON MAN.
Who else has wandered offstage?I know Clive Owen is on THE KNICK but I expected more.
