Can these Hollywood careers be saved?
From Hartnett to Hudson, we offer advice to 22 floundering Tinseltown talents
Career high point: The triple play of "Monster's Ball," "Die Another Day" and "X2" in succession
Career low point: "Dark Tide"
How to fix it: Berry was a superstar of the early '00s, but it all started to fall apart after Catwoman" in 2004. After two failed Oscar bait roles in "Things We Lost in the Fire" and "Frankie & Alice" Berry took three years off to deal with personal family issues. Her comeback in "New Year's Eve" wasn't (see Hilary Swank) and now her next film, "Dark Tide," is going straight to VOD this spring. Berry is trying to get back in the groove with the experimental (for lack of a better word) "Cloud Atlas," but that could be a Sci-Fi "Babel" (not necessarily a positive) Our suggestion? A solid action flick or thriller wouldn't be a bad idea. Just look what "Safe House" did for Ryan Reynolds.
