10 Huge Actors With NO Fresh Movies On Rotten Tomatoes

These actors have nothing but splats on their filmographies.

There's no denying the importance of Rotten Tomatoes in Hollywood - as an aggregator which directly impacts the movies that audiences watch, its influence is inestimable.

As such, an actor's Tomatometer page says a lot about their output as a performer, and while the majority of actors can't help but have a wild mix of acclaimed and less-well-received fare, sometimes they just keep striking out.

Yet even the most unambitious of actors should typically be able to appear in one Fresh movie throughout their careers, even if in only in a small supporting role, right?

But these high-profile actors, from 1990s TV legends to on-the-rise stars of the present, haven't managed to appear in a single critically Fresh film between them.

While not all of these actors have supremely stacked filmographies - and some have evidently returned to the comparative comfort of the TV world - it's still surprising that Hollywood as a whole hasn't ever found the right vehicle for them.

Whether you blame their agents, the industry for refusing to see them as anything beyond their most iconic role, or the actors' own poor eye for quality material, it's shocking that these performers have never been in a Fresh movie...

10. Matthew Perry

The six lead actors of Friends are basically all over the map where Tomatometer scores are concerned, and though Matt LeBlanc has just a single critically Fresh film to his name, Chandler Bing himself, Matthew Perry, has not even one.

Perry has starred in a number of commercially successful films - Fools Rush In, The Whole Nine Yards, and 17 Again - yet not a single one that's managed to crack 60% and achieve Fresh status.

He got close with 17 Again, which rocks a not-awful 56%, and so to date the only Fresh entry on his "film" page is Friends: The Reunion, which being a TV special and in no way a narrative film absolutely doesn't count.

Despite his enormous fame from his time playing Chandler, though, Perry hasn't appeared in a single film since 17 Again way back in 2009, though did shoot a scene for last year's Don't Look Up which was ultimately cleaved from the final cut.

Thankfully it didn't cause Perry to miss out on a Fresh movie, though, as Adam McKay's epic satire fell short of Fresh with 56% itself.
