Corrections:

Here's an IMDb link and a Rotten Tomatoes link for Elizabeth Taylor.  I'd like to see the critics need to add more of their views of Taylor's work to Rotten Tomatoes.

I said that Jessica Lange was "probably the one actor brought up so far who has actually chosen to perform in several good movies lately."  I feel Al Pacino, who was discussed earlier, also falls into this category.

I watched The King of New York this weekend, which leads me to one question: WHAT IN THE NAME OF ALL THAT IS GOOD AND HOLY HAPPENED TO DAVID CARUSO?! He was great in the King of New York! How do you go from a good Ray Liotta-ish intense actor, to the "Adam West without the intentional comedy, dramatic pausing" being he is today on CSI Miami? It's been said many times before, but the real David Caruso vanished right after he left NYPD Blue. (For which he was nominated for an Emmy).

If you look at his recent filmography without seeing the movies he's in you'd think Ray Liotta would be on the list, but as we've said, although he's done films that are far below his talent (Like Wild Hogs) Ray's still usually good in the film's he's in. (Which leaves me with a drop of optimism for Dungeon siege)

I remember before David Caruso became a joke for the South Park kids. "Hey Ike, do your impression of David Caruso's career!" He was intense and unique. It's a shame what box office failure can do. Kiss of Death wasn't a bad film. The fact that it wasn't a blockbuster is what hurt Caruso.

The problem with Kiss of Death was that it was a remake of a film that's remembered for making a star out of it's villain, and instead of casting the Tommy Udo-like role with an up and comer, you instead give the role to an established star. Don't get me wrong, I've heard quite a few good things about Nic Cage as Little Junior Brown (!), but Qui bono? Cage had an oscar winning performance that same year, so not too many people remember Kiss of Death.

Also add Harrison Ford. He's my all-time favorite action star (Well....after Clint Eastwood), but some of the things he's been in lately have made me scratch my head: Firewall (I didn't hear anything about his performance, but the reviews for the movie itself weren't kind), Hollywood Homicide, and (Especially) K-19 the widowmaker. Hopefully new Indiana Jones movie will get him back on the right track.

The last thing I saw Sean Connery in was the abysmal League of Extrodinary Gentlemen, so he may belong on the list as well.

I was going to put Robert De Niro on this list, but he gave two good performances recently (In Stardust and The Good Shephard). The same goes to Anthony Hopkins who was very good in Fracture...

I say Peter Ustinov...

When Ustinov screwed up Hammersmith Is Out...the producer wanted to sue to get his name off the picture...
Comparing Uwe Boll's movies to a sack of horse manure will only get you sued by every fertilizer company in existence...

Cuba Gooding, Jr.: From an Oscar for Jerry McGuire to Daddy Day Camp... 

Laurence Olivier: From an Oscar for Hamlet to a Razzie for Inchon... 

Jon Voight: From an Oscar nomination for Midnight Cowboy to Bratz: The Movie...

You forgot to mention that  Cuba Gooding Jr is now also in those awful Hanes underwear commercials with Michael Jordan. Plummeting from Oscar winner to potential RAZZIE nominee for DADDY DAY CAMP is embarrassinbg enough. But I'd venture to guess that plummeting from Oscar winner to underwear pitchman is about as far a fall as ANYONE has ever experienced...

I dunno, HeadRAZZ, that's a tough call.  Is Gooding's fall actually worse than Joan Crawford's fall from being a Best Actress Oscar winner all the way down to Trog?  I'd think most people would consider underwear pitchman to be a more honorable job. . . .

Her only saving grace at the end of her career was doing a great job in that one Night Gallery episode Eyes.  She played a rich blind woman who bought the eyes of a desperate man (played by Tom Bosley) so she could see for a few hours.  Shortly after the bandages were removed, there was a blackout.

I'm behaving myself here, resisting saying something, just to let you know...

How about this for a compromise: We give Worst MALE Downfall to Cuba Gooding Jr, and Worst FEMALE downfall to Joan Crawford?  True, even Cuba in his underwear yelling at Jordan in public places is a tad less embarrassing than Joan in her "designer spelunking ensembles" carrying on a conversation with the title creature in TROG...

Tim Allen has fallen pretty further for like more than 10 years. And after that time, he finally received a RAZZIE nod last year for playing a dog, Santa Clause again, and a Superhero dad.

I can go for that!

Looking at Gooding's male competition, Cuba may have it.  There's George Kennedy, who went from Cool Hand Luke, Spartacus and The Dirty Dozen all the way down to Bolero.  And then there's the late Rod Steiger, who went from On the Waterfront, The Pawnbroker, Oklahoma! and In the Heat of the Night all the way down to The Specialist and End of Days!  Still, Cuba may beat them both!

I have to agree about Dan Aykroyd. He went from being the first male Saturday night Live alumni to be nominated for an Oscar AFTER being a cast member of the show, to Crossroads and Christmas With The Cranks.

A friend told me Chevy Chase was at his worst in Funny Money this year.

Jane Fonda ( I would have thrown Peter Fonda in, but his cameo in Wild Hogs was ok, and I liked him in Ghost Rider, and especially 3:10 to Yuma)

I still am holding out hope that Cuba Gooding Jr. is getting back on the right track after American Gangster, which although his part was small in it, he did do a good job. (As did everyone else did in the film.........well everyone who didn't appear in Strip Tease, Judge Dredd, and Two For The Money.............hypothetically speaking, of course )

Al Pacino, definitely: From Godfather (I & II) all the way down to "Gigli" and "88 minutes." I feel sorry for him...   
Seltzerberg is back?

My top three would have to be:

1. Cuba Gooding Jr.: Like everyone has said before, he's gone from Oscar Winner to Hanes ads? Wow, that's sad.

2. Jon Voight: There was once a time when he went without work for years because he was very picky with the movies he wanted to be in. Now it seems he'll star in anything, "Anaconda", "Baby Geniuses 2", "Bratz", "Transformers", etc.

3. Eddie Murphy: He was really funny in the 80s, then the 90s came and he wasn't so funny, now it's the 2000s and he's not even funny by accident.

And honorable mention: Al Pacino. All he does now is yell at the top of his lungs.
