Simply put, if these actors are in a movie, it’s going to be bad. Don’t say we didn’t warn you. Check out Maxim. com’s list of “Kiss of Death Actors.”

10. Robin Williams
It used to be that one could judge a Robin Williams flick based on the depth and thickness of his facial hair. Bearded, as in Good Will Hunting and The Fisher King? Safe for human consumption. Clean-shaven, as in Patch Adams and Mrs. Doubtfire? Duck! After RV and his manic sojourns into voicing animated characters, we feel strongly that one should avoid all future Williams endeavors as one would a petri dish teeming with gonococcus.
6. Chris Rock
Chris Rock doing stand-up: funny. Chris Rock hosting the Academy Awards, exec-producing Everybody Hates Chris, or “acting” in I Think I Love My Wife, Head of State, and The Longest Yard: not funny. In conclusion, please strive to avoid anything Rock-related that doesn’t involve a stage and a microphone duct-taped to his hand. Thank you for your time
4. Ben Affleck
Hollywood honchos believe that Mr. Affleck is this close to recapturing the effortless charm he flashed in Good Will Hunting. But here’s the thing: On one side of the ledger, you have GWH. On the other, you have Jersey Girl, Gigli, Daredevil, Changing Lanes, Paycheck, Surviving Christmas, Bounce… Get our drift here? If it looks like a fluke and acts like a fluke, and wears a girly manicured goatee like a fluke, it’s probably a fluke.
2. Kevin Costner
Mr. Dances With Wusses’ next role, in Mr. Brooks, is described thusly by our pals at IMDB: “An insatiable serial killer, so lethally clever that no one has ever suspected him…until now!” Truth be told, it’s been quite some time since we associated Costner with anything but death and decay. He’s the cinematic equivalent of Penny Hardaway: fast out of the gate (The Untouchables, No Way Out, Bull Durham) before a downward plummet so steep and severe as to taint our memories of what came before.
