The casualty: actor Tom Green

From the moment discerning folks first saw Tom Green's moronic shtick on MTV's The Tom Green Show in 1999, the smartest of viewers knew that the Canadian performer's routine wasn't long for this world. All it took to bring Green's career crashing down was an astoundingly bad film called Freddy Got Fingered, a braindead monstrosity in which the star/co-writer, amongst other inexcusable "gags," licks a bone sticking out of an injured's man leg and jerks off an elephant.

Audiences ignored the film, disgusted critics brutalized it, and only reality "stars" Ray J and Donald Trump (via The Celebrity Apprentice) has given Green any noteworthy on-screen shine in the years following Freddy Got Fingered's reign of comedic terror.
