actors who have been anonymous since a big role/ roles (during that year). ( post 1990)

1.Adrien Brody
Last memorable performance : Władysław Szpilman in 'The Pianist' in 2002. So much promise, so little since.

2. Jamie Foxx
Last memorable performances : Max in 'Collateral' & Ray Charles in 'Ray' in 2004. Close being back in "The Soloist' , not there yet.

3. Jim Carrey
Last memorable performance: Joel Barish in "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" in 2004. More concerned with big box office comedy than anything else it seems.

4.Gwyneth Paltrow
Last Memorable performance : Viola De Lesseps in ''Shakespeare in Love'' in 1998. Was good in 'The Royal Tenenbaums'' but that was more of a cast thing than an individual thing.

5. Jeremy Irons

Last memorable performance: Claus von Bulow in "Reversal of Fortune" in 1990. Best since then is he was Scar in 'Lion King'

6. Thomas Hayden Church

Last Memorable Performance: Jack Lopate in " Sideways" in 2004.

7.Chiwetel Ejiofor

8. Cuba Gooding Jr.

Last Memorable Performance :
Rod Tidwell in "Jerry Maguire" in 1997.

9.Rachel Weisz

10.Keisha Castle-Hughes

last memorable perfromance: Paikea Apirana in 'Whale Rider'in 2002. Maybe ''The Vinter's Luck'' will be good, the hype about it isnt though.

11. Charlize Theron :

last memorable performance : Josey Aimes in "North Country" in 2005.

12.Jodie Foster

last memorable performance: Dr. Eleanor Arroway in "Contact" in 1997. Long career , so maybe she's done enough. but she isn't that old. So maybe not.

14. Angela Bassett

last memorable performance: Tina Turner in "what's Love got to Do With It?" in 1993

15.Roberto Benigni

last memorable performance:
Guido Orefice in "La Vita e Bella" in 1998. Not that active in movies at all, managed to put out "Pinocchio" . Probably shouldn't have.

16. Jon Voight

last memorable performance: Howard Cosell in "Ali" in 2001. Long career, wouldn't even be here if he wasn't still making lots of movies.

17. Minnie Driver

last memorable performance: Skylar in " Good Will Hunting" in 1997.

18. Kate Hudson

last memorable performance: Penny Lane in "Almost Famous" in 2000. Has only been in movies that numb the brain since then.

19. Tim Roth

last memorable performance: Archibald Cunningham in "Rob Roy" in 1995.

20. Jude Law

last memorable performance: Inman in "Cold Mountain" in 2003. Maybe Dr.Watson in 'Sherlock Holmes' could be something. Doesn't look likely though
