Ten Hollywood Has-Beens Who Spent 2018 Obsessed with Trump
PJ Media ^ | December 31, 2018 | MATT MARGOLIS

Posted on 01/03/2019 7:57:25 PM PST by EdnaMode

I’ve previously written about how celebrities are ruining Twitter with their political and hate speech. For my last post of 2018, I’ve compiled a special list of Hollywood has-beens who are desperately trying to remain relevant despite Hollywood careers that are well beyond their expiration dates.

10. Rosie O'Donnell I guess she’s a celebrity… or was. I don’t know. She’s been in a few movies you’ve probably seen.

The only two that come to mind are Sleepless in Seattle and A League of Their Own… but for sure, she had a briefly successful stint in Hollywood in the 1990s as a comedian/supporting actress who now has only the occasional guest spot on a television series. She had a daytime talk show that only lasted six seasons… but rest assured, she still matters because she’s regularly bashing Trump and the GOP on Twitter! Her tweets are juvenile and unhinged, but that’s the recipe that makes a celebrity matter these days.

But, between her and Donald Trump, Trump is the one with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. And I guess she’s really bitter about that. I couldn’t tell you what she’s been up to with her career these days, but she’s not gonna let us forget that she hates Trump and thinks his inevitable impeachment is approaching.

9. Mark Hamill I’m not sure if Mark Hamill is a Hollywood has-been, or a Hollywood never-was, because despite having starred in the biggest movie franchise of all time, Mark Hamill’s career has been largely forgettable. He’s been busy in Hollywood, that’s for sure, but his filmography is filled with a wide array of voice work.

Jason Alexander is #5. Jerry Seinfeld is against political correctness. What happened to George?

Their timelines, their careers (?) are all 70-80-90. None more recent. Any pattern there?

Only three on the list I never heard of , that is amazing for me with these "celebrity" posts. Cannot place why I heard of them, but whatever.

EVERYONE is supposed to know these people seems to be the theme.

You mean he's a 'never-was' then, right?

His performance in "Corvette Summer" was Oscar worthy.

I noticed Alec Baldwins radio show is a bust....2% audience!!!! Cancellation right around the corner...just like Air America a decade ago..which had to have support from rich donors because it could not exist with commercial support because it had virtually no audience. Was promoted as competition to Rush Limbaugh!!! Although he has been on successful shows when he is the lead actor he bombs!!!

He got caught up playing Capture the Flag with the f**s from 4chan.

(Note, 4channers call themselves f**s, therefore, I used the term as well.)

He is as popular as he has ever been. He writes his own ticket right now. As an actor, that doesn’t make him a has-been.

Yea, he kind of is...

He’s basically a voice actor for Cartoons, with an occasional appearance on a TV show, other than the new star wars giving him some screen work, he really isn’t top list talent. Fact he was LUKE makes him known, but he’s not a major player by any stretch.

About the only person on that list you could make an argument for that is still very much active in Hollywood is Reiner.. who is still making and producing major films.
