Dan Marino – Ace Ventura
What was it about the ’90s and elite athletes appearing in offbeat comedies? Marino was one of the top quarterbacks of his era and set many passing records. He never won a Super Bowl but he was a brilliant passer in terms of stats. However, he wasn’t a great actor as his performance in Ace Ventura: Pet Detective revealed.
It didn’t help that he starred across from the manic ball of energy that was peak Jim Carrey. Marino’s stiff acting is hilarious for all of the wrong reasons because he’s so bad. Ultimately, it didn’t damage his legacy and the cameo helped the film’s popularity. But it still made him look ridiculous (via Slant Magazine).
