Why oh why did none of the child actors in this movie ever go on to do anything after their great performances in this movie?  I mean other than Jennifer Conneley and to a lesser extent Brian Bloom (young Patsy), none of the talented young actors did much anything after this movie.  I find it appalling in a world were shrill, unlikeable kids like Haley Joel Osment and Dakota Fanning become big stars, that Scott Tiler, Rusty Jacobs, Adrian Curran, and the rest never made another movie, or only one or two, afterwards. 

It's truly dreadful, really.  In a world where Britney Spears and Jessica Simpson are big-name stars, these talented young actors were left to wing.  If that was their choice, that's alright, but still . . . I just don't get it.

Dakota Fanning has the most annoying scream ever as evidenced in WOTW.

LOL Alan . . . I certainly agree . . . but seriously, I don't understand what the big deal with DF is.  She isn't a bad actress for a ten year-old, but every character she's played since "I Am Sam" has been pretty much the same.  I am sick to death of seeing her in trailers for every movie that comes out.  Can't the casting people find another ten year old actress for their films?  Gawd.

Of course it was. Charles Bronson confirmed it!   Grin

Haley Joel and Macaulay Culkin are two "cute" child actors who have grown up to butt-ugly men.  There's a REASON why we never hear from them again.

There are a few good child actors - Elijah Wood (though he no longer fits that category), Frankie Muniz (see "My Dog Skip"), a few others I'm no doubt forgetting.  But the more famous ones can go fuck themselves.  But they'd better get permission from their parents first!  Grin
