    So I was re watching '3 Ninjas' the other day after many years and I couldn't take my mind off how awesome the bad guy was. Rand Kingsley is his name. He took a badly written, over the top, cliched character and made it memorable. Seriously, a very good performance. Especially considering how mediocre and campy the direction is.

    So I went on IMDB to see whatever happened to him and apparently he only had 1 more part, which was a 2 line cameo, 6 years later. Couldn't say I wasn't disappointed. Such a waste of talent imo.

    So which actor/actress do you feel had the potential and the talent to achieve much more in their career? Whether it's small time actors that could have made it big or big names that could have been much bigger.

    Well, Lance Henriksen made a lot of movies, but could have been a legit Hollywood actor. But I am happy he was relegated to B movies and horror flicks, bc I like those better than Hollywood movies.

    Jack Gleeson. Even out of character I fucking hate him - that's how good he did with Joffrey.

    That's why I'm saying he's a wasted talent.

    Skeet Ulrich was primed to take every role written with Johnny Depp in mind, but Johnny Depp don't play that.

    I liked Angela Bettis, would have liked to see her do more horror. Though maybe she'd get stuck playing the same roles over and over, because I think she's great as a weird ass crazy chick lol, so they prolly would have kept running with that

    I had a huge crush on Leelee Sobieski back in the day.
    Another wasted talent.
