Why Hollywood won't cast Eric Stoltz anymore
In the '80s, Eric Stoltz was a big deal — and rightfully so. After a powerful, Golden Globe-nominated, prosthetic-laden performance as Rocky Dennis in Mask, Stoltz skyrocketed to teen heartthrob status with his role as earnest Keith Nelson in the teen classic Some Kind of Wonderful. In the '90s, Stoltz made the jump to the indie film circuit, landing roles in a string of low-budget cult classics and delivering memorable performances in movies like Pulp Fiction (as Lance, the cereal-munching drug dealer), Kicking and Screaming, and Killing Zoe.
Of course, the '80s and '90s were a long time ago, and a lot has changed since then. Stoltz is in his 50s now, and he's nowhere near as busy onscreen as he was during his peak. His familiar face occasionally pops up in a guest role on TV dramas like Madam Secretary or Grey's Anatomy, but for the most part, Eric Stoltz isn't really a name on the marquee so much anymore.
