A recent report by the BIMDB (Betoota Internet Movie Database) has found that it’s probably time for poor old Chris O’Donnell to get cast in a major movie.
Born in 1970, Chris O’Donnell is a once-pretty-famous American actor. He stared alongside Al Pacino in Scent of a Woman, D’Artagnan in The Three Musketeers, Jack Foley in the drama film Circle of Friends, Dick Grayson/Robin in Batman Forever and Batman & Robin, Jason Brown in Robert Altman’s Cookie’s Fortune, and Peter Garrett in Vertical Limit. O’Donnell currently stars as special Agent G. Callenon the CBS crime drama television series NCIS: Los Angeles, a spin-off of NCIS.
Australian fans of the 40-something former Blockbuster movie star say they have no idea why the work stopped coming in for old mate ‘rubberlips’ – but say it’s definitely time he got another shot.
Betoota-based film critic, Sino Fyle (55) says Chris O’Donnell’s career is one of those ones that has him scratching his head.
“I’ve seen him on the NCIS’s and a few others. But he’s hasn’t really been in a movie since Vertical Limit”
“Like not many blokes get to go from kissing Uma Thurman and climbing Pakistani mountains in CGI to just bouncing around TV like that”
“Give the bloke another gig.”
BIMDB users say none of them are really sure what happened either, and that it’s not like he’s done nothing as bad as Kevin Costner did with Waterworld. Batman & Robin was actually pretty good at the time.
