Actors Whose Movie Careers Were Supposed to be Much Bigger

Haley Joel Osment

There’s not much to say. Adorable in Forrest Gump and The Jeff Foxworthy Show.  Clearly he was awesome in the The Sixth Sense.  In fact I’ll argue it’s one of the best child performances in a movie of all-time.  Then he did Pay it Forward which was good.  But frankly his looks really changed once he hit puberty.  Second Hand Lions was a flop and it just stopped after that. I don’t think we’ll be seeing him anytime soon.
