    Boy, I don't know...I saw him at Burger King and he seemed very concerned about being able to get a Big King as part of the 2-for-$5 promotion. He may have fallen on hard times.

    It always kills me. You ask someone what they remember about Chris Webber and his talent is rarely the first thing they mention. Which is a shame. Kind of a funny way to leave the college game though.

    IMO, Will Smith hasn't been in a good movie in a long time and at one time he was one of the biggest actors out there.

    Will Smith is more into pimping his kids to hollywood now. Which is unfortunate.

    Tim Allen comes to mind. Outside of being the voice of Buzz Lightyear, he's been a pretty forgettable celebrity for a loooong time.

    And yet I remembered him. :skeptical:

    Yet he's still one of the most recognizable actors out there, so I'm pretty sure that doesn't fit the criteria. The idea is to find someone that was heavily in the public spotlight and then dropped out completely, never to really be heard from again. An example would be Molly Ringwald.

    To pepper in a few more: Elian Gonzalez, Lake Voorheis, Bill Bellemy, Jonathan Taylor Thomas and of course, Terri Schiavo.

    He has a really funny sitcom called "Last Man Standing." My wife and I watch it all the time. His three daughters remind me of my own.

    You would be correct. I can't wake up and brush my teeth without seeing or hearing him in something.

    Nearly every girl that was a "bond girl", no matter how good their career was before it.
