10 Actors Who Were Wasted In Their Franchise Return

We waited two decades to see Jeff Goldblum sat behind a desk...

If the current global situation has taught us one thing, it's that absence most definitely makes the heart grow fonder.

That's why fans tend to lose their minds whenever an actor returns to a film franchise after a couple of years or possibly even a few decades away from that world. As we all know, nostalgia sells and there's nothing more nostalgic than seeing one of your old favourites suit up for one more ride on the big screen!

Yet, not every highly anticipated comeback is as successful as Harrison Ford returning to blast Stormtroopers as Han Solo in The Force Awakens. Some are actually quite the opposite.

Whether it was because of a lack of serious screen time, their role in the finished product being cut to pieces or the fact they didn't really influence proceedings, each of these thespians just didn't get the triumphant return we (and probably they) were hoping for.

Thankfully, we do live in a time where there's always a chance to right the wrong of a crappy comeback with yet another sequel.

But, there's no denying that the folowing ten actors were completely wasted in these franchise returns.
