    I'd expect to see Raul Julia from Street Fighter to be on the list too.

    The jab is because it's obvious he did it only for money, no matter how small the amount. That's the point of the whole list. Even if they gave him pennies that only makes it worse

    My guess is there were too many examples of Voight doing this and they all canceled each other out.

    Or, maybe his performance in the summer blockbuster, "Bratz" was so phenomenally spectacular that they couldn't in good conscience call him out on previous sell outs? *cough*

    I'm surprised everyone in "Sgt. Pepper's Lonley Hearts Club Band" wasn't listed.

    I can agree with all of those except Murray doing Garfield. He didn't do that role for the money, he did it because the VA who originally did the Garfield cartoon died before the film got made and he was a good friend of Murray's. In fact, the VA did Venkman (Murray's character) for the Ghostbusters Cartoon.

    I was thinking more of Bratz and that anti-Mormon movie. He'll take pretty much any role he's offered.

    Any decent actor/actress in any Uwe Boll movie should make the list. Hell, even the bad ones could be argued for.

    No, I remember reading that he was pissed off that he did that movie. I can't remember exactly what he called it, but as a TF fan, I wanted to hurt him.

    Bill Murray voicing Garfield is kind of ironic since he pretty much caused Lorenzo Music (the guy who voiced Garfield in the cartoon series) lose his stint as Peter Venkman in The Real Ghostbusters cartoon...

    I laugh at these "sellout" lists, of course they're doing if for the money, no one works for free certainly not actors, lists like these make me laugh.
