There is such a thing as too much of a good thing. This principle extends to most aspects of life, including the film industry. Here are 15 actors whose careers took a blow from an abundance of movie and media overexposure.

Call Seth Rogen a victim of his own success. After the one-two punch of Superbad and Knocked Up in 2007, Rogen’s star rose. Unfortunately, the actor/writer may have spread himself a bit too thin as he was featured in no less than six movies the following year, four projects in 2009, and five projects in 2011. Of these films, only 50/50 and The Pineapple Express can be considered breakout vehicles (setting aside his voice over work, of course). Things slowed down for the actor last year with The Guilt Trip standing as his only major release. It yielded disappointing box office results, perhaps due to Rogen’s previous onscreen over saturation.
