Poll Suggestion: IMDb Poll Board Least Favorite Popular Actors

In this poll, we will suggest the male actors that are pretty popular and have made well known films - that we just don't like.  Not on a personal level, of course, just ones we think aren't talented or we can't take seriously.  Only one suggestion per person, please!

Great choice, will add!  I thought he was great in Les Mis, but in most everything else he's a little overrated - especially Greatest Showman!

albstein and Paok,

Did you see John Turturro in 'Quiz Show'? He was so good!
He even got nominated for a Golden Globe. I don't think he is a really bad actor.
He just had bad luck with his last roles.

I think it's more like John Travolta, Till Schweiger, Tommy Wiseau, Michael Dudikoff, Steven Seagal, Jimmy Smits, Hayden Christensen, Uwe Boll, Rupert Grint, Taylor Lautner, Udo Kier. What about  Sacha Baron Cohen? I like him, but ... many don't
And Weird Al' Yankovic?

P.S.: It's is normally expected, that a list is attached to the suggestion. Please, would you attach the list you created on IMDb to the suggestion? I guess mostly all of us wait for the list. :) Greets.

He is a fine actor in my opinion. I just don't like him that much.

Breumaster, he may have been in Quiz Show .. BACK IN 1994. But countless Transformer movies since. That's enough toxic crap to kill any legitimacy from that one role.

I didn't even see this thread until now!  Yes, I will post the list soon, but it's not ready to become a poll yet.  :)

Well, Stephen. If 4 times is countless to you, his 107 times to be an Actor must seem infinit to you. That's ok for me.

I'm not saying I hate him or consider him a bad actor. I'm just pointing out why some people may not consider him popular.

You do realize that in Hollywood, it's what you done recently that matters.

It might be, that it is my failure to look at a man's or woman's whole life to judge him or her. Maybe it's because I think that bashing someone is quick and easily done, while a good and convincing argumentation needs deeper thoughts and consideration. But I think I got it. This poll really is simply about bashing popular people. So I would pick Ashton Kutcher. 'Butterfly Effect' was pretty good, but since he does 80% romcoms, I can't see his face anymore. Even the Steven Jobs movie was better with Michael Fassbender.

Popularity is a very brief and ephemeral concept. You kind of getting stuck on actor's previous far distant (read as somewhat facetious) successful (critically and/audience approved) projects.

As for Ashton Kutcher? His recent turn in the TV series, The Ranch (no idea what the heck that is)? Was that well known enough but mainstream audiences to kind of keep Ashton in the popular crowd?

I heard about the Ranch and looked it up.  It sounded like a serious show but turns out it's a sitcom!  I've never seen it.

Stephen, what period of time are we talking about, exactly? What distance of time would be allowed? That's not properly clear on the description. Popularity can also last a decade. Look at the superhero-movies. They're popular for more then 10 years, now. Not any in mode does change that fast. Mr. Kutcher is just making a movie again (2019). It's stuffed with popular workmates (James Franco, Josh Hutcherson, Analeigh Tipton, Josh Hartnet, Giancarlo Esposito, etc.) So why should he be not a popular actor? 'The Ranch' (TV-Series) got a rating of 7.6/10 from more than 25.000 voters. It's not extly that he didn't work and wasn't popular the last time.
Without a definition of what's to be considered as popular, many time-distances can be considered as popular.

Btw: Why should Steven Seagal be more popular than Ashton Kutcher? His last 9 movies (each one) got less than 2000 ratings from the IMDb users. His last movie with more than 5000 ratings was 2012. (6063 votes, 4.9/10)

His last released movie (Dezember 2018, 'General Commander') has 61 votes, the movie before 284 votes ('Attrition'). His movies of 2017 together have less than 1900 votes. There is no actor more unpopular than Steven Seagal on this list.

When I said 'Popular' Actors on these polls, I merely meant that the choices should be people we've heard of who have some kind of reputation.  If I would've simply asked 'Least Favorite Actor/Actress, I was afraid it would all be people with teeny B movies roles once in their life.  While bad, that's not what I wanted.  I was just asking what performers who have done quite a few theater movies you all don't like.  They don't have to be popular as in current hot items.

Oh yes.
Robert Downey Jr. is in the Top500, while Taylor Lautner is even in the Top5000.
Downey's Top500-display is red, Lautner's Top-5000-display is green. ;)
The more popular the actors is, the lower the Top-number is.
The red or green color marks the tendency. Right?
And the news-articles number says 6:1 for Kutcher.

That's ok. It would have been nice to write that into the rules. This limitation wasn't set. I found the situation here just like some 'bash-somebody-list' of a few users. And I wrote about exact the matter about bashing before. There was time to clear that up early!

I think Pattinson is just in this group of people you mention. Like Kutcher's 'Butterfly Effect', he did some roles after 'Twillight', that  were "serious". But to count him to 'some kind of reputation' between those old men there? Kutcher had 'The Guardian' and 'Jobs' and many romcoms. For me they're equal, replaceable. One against the other.

Thanks, maybe I will change the intro (for this one and the female one) to make more sense.  :)

leavey-2, I will add your suggestion.  
Arkas16, are you just agreeing with leavey-2, or are you wanting to select Dwayne as well?  Either one is fine!
