Chris O'Donnell: What the hell happened to his career?

    Just saw a commercial for a new G-rated movie called Kit Kittredge. And it got me thinking: What the hell happened to Chris O'Donnell, who stars in the movie? Ten years ago, he was on the fast track to superstardom. By 23, he'd already supported Oscar-winning Al Pacino in "Scent of A Woman" and toplined (love Variety terms like that) "The Three Musketeers." Then he was in two Batman movies. And then...poof. He's done some long-term guest starring roles on TV and had a series about lawyers that went belly-up in a hurry.

    He seemed to be pretty close to a sure thing. So why is he in G-rated movies during what should be the prime of his career?

    You know what got me about that, which I just read a review of in US Weekly (Hi BigLead!)?

    O'Donnell plays the FATHER.

    This thread means one thing: Today there are two people wondering what happened to Chris O'Donnell's career — BYH and Chris O'Donnell.

    (And this is the first day that there's been a second person wondering.)

    Maybe there was never a Chris ODonnell and it was really Rosie O Donnell all along?

    Wasn't he in a few episodes of Grey's Anatomy?

    Wasn't fatherhood essentially what happened to his acting career? What's he got, 4,5 kids now? Perhaps he's been busy with them.
