Long Time No See: Six MIA Actors and What They’re Up To
Some actors are constantly working and seem to pop up on movie screens every weekend. Others put out memorable, award-winning work and then drop off the radar for a year or more. Pink and Black has dubbed the following six actors MIA (Missing in Acting), and we want to see more of them. Luckily, they all have exciting films in the works.
Steinfeld made a name for herself in the 2010 “True Grit” remake. The role earned her an Oscar nomination. She hasn’t appeared in anything since, but she’ll wow audiences again in her role as the title heroine in the 2013 adaptation of “Romeo and Juliet.” The film stars Douglas Booth as Romeo and Ed Westwick (“Gossip Girl”) as Tybalt. After that Steinfeld will play Petra in the adaptation of Orson Scott Card’s Ender’s Game.
Audiences grew to love Cera on the TV series “Arrested Development” and in movies like “Juno” (2007). He’s been absent from the screen since “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World” (2010). Fans are waiting anxiously for more news about the “Arrested Development” movie, but meanwhile everyone can look forward to “The End of the World” (2013), in which Cera and other celebrities like Emma Watson and Paul Rudd become faced with the apocalypse while at James Franco’s house. All the stars play themselves.
The beautiful “Avatar” actress was last seen in the action film “Colombiana” (2011), but she has quite a few highly anticipated films coming up, starting with this year’s drama “The Words,” co-starring Bradley Cooper and Olivia Wilde. Next year, she’ll be in the “Star Trek” sequel, and it has been announced that she will appear in 2015′s “Avatar” sequel.
This British actor became a star when he appeared in the popular “Lord of the Rings” and “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchises. Since then, most people know more about his marriage to model Miranda Kerr than his recent movie career. Bloom has been keeping a low profile, starring in independent films. He’s going back to his roots this December when he reprises his role as the elf Legolas in “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.”
Kidman, a critically acclaimed actress, received awards attention for her dramatic role in 2010′s “Rabbit Hole.” We haven’t seen much of her since, but recently she starred in the HBO movie “Hemingway and Gellhorn,” in which she plays the wife of writer Ernest Hemingway (Clive Owen). In 2014 she’s set to play Hollywood icon Grace Kelly in “Grace of Monaco.”
This multi-talented actor last appeared in “The Town” (2010), which he also directed. He’ll return to the screen in Terrence Malick’s “To the Wonder” with Rachel McAdams, and in the drama “Argo,” which he also directed. Both films will be released later this year.
If you were wondering where these famous faces have been, there’s no need to worry. They’ll be back onscreen in no time.
