You may say a successful acting career comes from the ability to always choose the right roles, but for these 5 actors, that rule doesn’t really apply. They all have achieved some well deserved immunity and no slip up can undermine their brilliant careers. Still, we can't help but wonder about some of these professional moves. Here are 5 terrible role choices made by 5 great actors.


1. Robert de Niro as Fearless Leader in
'The Adventures of Rocky & Bullwinkle' (2000)


If we take a closer look to Robert de Niro’s acting resume, we quickly understand he does whatever the hell he wants. Among memorable movies that made him the iconic actor he is today, like 'Taxi Driver', 'Raging Bull' or 'Goodfellas', you catch a few peculiar choices, like 'Stardust', where he plays the part of an evil captain with a taste for drag or 'The Adventures of Rocky & Bullwinkle', where he gives life to the sole enemy of a moose and a squirrel. In this last film, the Fearless Leader reveals a bad taste for monocles and a bizarre accent, making it the strangest performance ever given by the actor.


2. Al Pacino as Al Pacino in
'Jack and Jill' (2011)


It’s not the first time Al Pacino makes a bold career choice, but this is definitely one of the most bizarre. In the infamous 'Jack and Jill', Al Pacino plays himself, while falling in love for Adam Sandler in one of the most horrible drags in movie history. I can understand he’s too important to care, but I can’t stop wondering about the motivation that led him to accept this confusing disaster.


3. Judi Dench as Aereon in
'The Chronicles of Riddick' (2004)


Watching Judi Dench in the 'Chronicles of Riddick' is like watching the Pope hanging around the Red Light District. The method actress with an impressive acting repertoire in theatre and film decided to mix it up a bit and accept a role in science fiction. Unfortunately, her choice was an incoherent movie where Vin Diesel ends up running away from the sun.


4. Robert Downey Jr. as Dr. Kozak in
'The Shaggy Dog' (2006)


I’m not sure when Robert Downey Jr. stopped using drugs, but this weird career choice may suggest something. 'The Shaggy Dog' is a questionable comedy movie where Tim Allen turns into a canine after being bitten by a dog that was genetically manipulated by an evil scientist, Dr. Kozak, portrayed by our dear Iron Man.


5. Tommy Lee Jones as Roland Sharp in
'Man of the House' (2005)


Because he’s always the laconic tough guy that makes all the rules and never gets a piece of ass, Tommy Lee Jones decided to accept the role of a Texas Ranger that protects a group of cheerleaders in the 2005 movie 'Man of the House'. In this comedy snooze fest, the actor made his own history by adding a stain to his immaculate resume.
