Trying to establish longevity in Hollywood is a tricky game, and requires a delicate balancing act to pull it off.
Some actors do it by remaining firmly inside their wheelhouse and refusing to change knowing that their personal brand is a safe and marketable one, while others hop from genre to genre to build a reputation as a versatile talent that keeps the work coming in.
On the other side of the camera, there are very few directors afforded the ability to pick and choose their projects as they see fit, meaning that a lot of them operate on a 'one for me, one for you' basis, and will happily sign on to tackle a formulaic and uninspired blockbuster so long as they get the chance to work on something that gets their creative juices flowing as a result.
Life is full of bad decisions, and while a lot of things in the movie business are quickly swept under the rug and soon forgotten, there have been movies so disastrous that the actors or directors involved are still yet to recover from their failures.
I don't do social media, so like or follow me in person but please maintain a safe distance or the authorities will be notified. Don't snap me though, I'll probably break. I was once labelled a misogynist on this very site in a twenty paragraph-long rant for daring to speak ill of the Twilight franchise. I stand by what I said, it's crap.
