Once a celebrity makes it to Hollywood, they decide to test the waters of all levels of the entertainment industry. Some celebrities were only blessed with one talent, but refuse to accept it, while others quietly took the L and strayed from their short-lived hoop dreams.
Whether it took them years or it was instantly, most celebrities have had a failed attempt to stardom. Kevin Hart even pointed out a chuckle-worthy #TBT that inspired us to go back down memory lane.
Here are some of the funniest terrible movie debuts (aka fails) of our favorite celebs.

Beyoncé in Carmen: A Hip Hopera
Beyoncé plays a gypsy named Carmen.
Wiz Khalifa in High School
Wiz Khalifa played character Devin Overstreet the school valedictorian, who gets high for the first time with the school stoner, Mac aka Snoop Lion.
Ashanti in Coach Carter
Ashanti played Kyra who was the girlfriend of Rob Brown’s character.
Although it was a big hit in the box office, it was quite corny. B2K played the baddest dance crew in the neighborhood.
Robin Thicke in Making the Rules
The movie was completed in 2012, but remained unreleased until May 2014 and there’s a reason.
Mario in Step Up
In the first of many Step Up movies Mario plays a DJ and student named Miles Darby alongside Channing Tatum.
Juelz Santana in Killa Season
Proabably one of the most ratchet hood movies ever starring Killa Cam and Juelz Santana.
Kevin Hart in Paper Soldiers
Kevin Hart came a long way from Shawn in Paper Soldiers.
Kids was a decent movie with a great message, but unfortunately Dawson played a THOT named Ruby.
Nas in Belly
Although Belly is a hood classic, Nas displayed some pretty bad acting in his first role.
