I really thought Clive Owen would be bigger, but I'm not sure what the turning point was. Maybe Duplicity?

I was wondering yesterday why Rachel Weisz hasn't been in more movies. She's really good and super hot.

She's in a lot. But not a lot of super high profile stuff lately (The Favourite being the exception, obviously).

Ed Norton is a boring actor

I think Ed Norton did a lot on back in the day but his fame prevent him to get more roles. American History X and The Hulk ´s both had the actor being insufferable in all the different stages of production.

Norton stalled because he always wants too much control over story & character choices, so lots of directors & studios hate working with him.

I always thought Rutger Hauer should have been a big star.
