In our latest WTF series, we take a look at some of our favorite stars and filmmakers who have seemingly disappeared or altered their careers over the years to the point that begs the question; WTF happened? Now, before you think we’re just picking on celebrities or running some gossip rag stuff, think again! We take a fun (and sometimes funny), researched and fair approach, looking at all angles that led our subject to wherever they are now (which isn’t necessarily a bad place at all). If anything, it answers the question on where these fine folks went, how they got there and where you can find ’em now.
In our latest episode of WTF Happened To… we take a look at the career of Adrien Brody, who appeared mostly as a supporting actor in films like The Thin Red Line and Summer of Sam, until taking home an Oscar for Best Actor in Roman Polanski‘s The Pianist in 2002. After that he did a number of high profile films, including Peter Jackson‘s King Kong, M. Night Shyamalan‘s The Village, Predators, Rian Johnson‘s The Brothers Bloom and Wes Anderson‘s The Darjeeling Limited/The Grand Budapest Hotel before disappearing into a number of odd roles and odd films that failed to show off his caliber of talent (although he did make a recurring appearance on Peaky Blinders). Brody continues to work steadily, but will we see him return to the kinds of roles that helped him take home the gold? Let’s take a look at this fine actor’s career to figure out WTF Happened to Adrien Brody!
