10 One-Hit Wonder Hollywood Stars

2. Brandon Routh

To be fair, Brandon Routh did have some shoes to fill when he stepped into the role of the most popular super hero of all time – Superman. He was anonymous when he was chosen for the lead role in this iconic franchise but he probably didn’t expect to go back to anonymity once the movie was released and the hype gone. So Brandon got the role in Superman in 2006 and although he was more or less praised for his performance, the movie itself failed at the box office. In a few months the dust has settled and Ruth was not a hot topic anymore.

Since then, the actor did appear in several other movies such as Scott Pilgrim vs. the World and Zack and Miri Make a Porno, he only has a supporting role in them and never managed to repeat the same success as with Superman. Routh is still in the acting business which means he hasn’t given up. And there may be hope for him after all since he is portraying another superhero, The Atom, in the TV show Arrow.
