Link of the day: The 25 "greatest" paycheck movies

The beginning to this write-up on Eragon kinda says everything you’d need to know about Entertainment Weekly‘s list of 25 movies that actors probably did only for the paychecks:

Maybe [Jeremy] Irons (right) is a closet nerd with a thing for fire-breathing flops. After all, he also starred in 2000’s Dungeons & Dragons. But what’s [John] Malkovich’s excuse?

What, indeed. All I remember is salivating over them and Gabriel Byrne in Man in the Iron Mask. Now that’s how one is supposed to musketeer.

    That’s hilarious! I was just thinking about good actors doing paycheck movies when I read John Cusack is in “2012”. More money so he can sit around in coffeehouses and complain and avoid trying to follow up his brilliant actor/co-writer gigs on “Grosse Pointe Blank” and “High Fidelity”.

    (also see: “Must Love Dogs”, “Con Air”, “America’s Sweethearts”, etc.)

    C’mon, Johnny. “War, Inc.” doesn’t count either.
