So I was reading something from EgoTvOnline.com and it was a list of TV celebrities who they think will never be on top again. This was really interesting to me for some reason.. not sure why, but it raised a question. They listed: Ellen Pompeo-Grey's Anatomy, Debra Messing-Will and Grace, Michael Richards (Kramer)-Seinfeld, Ray Romano-Everybody Loves Raymond, and finally Michael Fox-Lost.
My question is, do you agree with this list? I would say out of all of them, Ellen Pompeo would be in the forefront. She was in the cult classic "Old School," "DareDevil," and "Catch Me If You Can." All three were successful movies. Debra Messing has been in a ton of movies on Lifetime, but so far, her biggest movie has been "The Wedding Date," which has success. Michael Richards shot himself in the foot w/his racists outbursts. Ray Romano, well I think he was kind of annoying on "Everybody Loves Raymond." Finally Matthew Fox, who just finished "Lost," was also previously successful on the show "Party Of Five." He definitely has the appeal to get some movie roles.
TV stars definitely have the potential to make successful movies. Look at Katherine Heigl for example. She has been in plenty of movies and has more coming out. So do you think these are "fallen stars" or just casualties of a lack of casting?
