Forbes is forever spinning lists that herald the successes of the world’s rich and famous and on the flipside is their annual picks for Most Overpaid Actors.
This year Adam Sandler has the dubious distinction of leading the pack of underachievers based on his last three movies over the past three years ending June 1, 2013. Forbes looked at what they earned, movie budgets and expenses to calculate a return on investment for each star.
Check out Hollywood’s latest list of slackers:
Sandler will have an opportunity to up his game with the 2014 release of ‘Blended,’ co-starring Drew Barrymore. Katherine Heigl, who has long been deemed “difficult,” will appears in four films slated to hit the big screen over the next twelve months.
We’re holding out hope for Reese Witherspoon, who is currently filming ‘Wild,’ a true story adapted from the New York Times Best Seller ‘Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail’ by author Cheryl Strayed.
We’re not giving up on Witherspoon, who received a Best Actress in a Leading Role Oscar in 2006 for her portrayal in ‘Walk the Line.’ She simply needs to reclaim her mojo. Go Girl!
Nicolas Cage will have three opportunity next year to wow audiences but it looks like Hollywood has ceased to come knocking on comedic actor Kevin James‘ door as he has nothing in the works for 2014.
