As everyone knows, Hollywood is a brutal business and if you don’t make the most of your career you’ll fizzle out quicker than a firework. The famous celebs who made the list were once at the top of the world and now have a regular 9 to 5 job to pay the bills!
Chris Owen was getting plenty of acting work in the late 90s and early 2000s, his most memorable role as Shermanator in the American Pie franchise. Sadly, Owen was getting typecast into the same role in every movie and the character was pretty much the same person except for a few slight variations. Owen was never able to break out of the stereotype and soon found himself out of work. In 2013, he was spotted working as a waiter at a restaurant called Sushi Roku, he eventually quit and is now working as a photographer.
If you have a career like Tony Danza it seems you would be immune to having to work a regular job especially for the sake of a reality show.
