Colin Ferguson, better known as Jack Carter from Eureka and William from the show Haven, is unfortunately just such an actor, although I hope I am mistaken. Now, this may have been his choice so as to spend more time with family, like in the case of Janine LaManna, better known as Carmen Sandiego in the kids show many of us who grew up in the '80s and '90s remember, Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego? (More on that adventure at The Huffington Post.) I certainly hope it was choice for Mr. Ferguson and that he has many more great acting roles in the future, but I recently saw a Maytag commercial with Colin as the new Maytag Man mascot.
Really? Seriously, the Maytag Man? Oh how the mighty have fallen.
No, Colin Ferguson hasn't reached the caliber of Tom Cruise, Julia Roberts, Robin Williams, Tom Hanks, or Brad Pitt, but I'd put him on par in celebrity with Sandra Bullock and even Nathan Fillion, best known for his leading roles in Joss Whedon's Firefly series and the more recent popular series Castle. For fans of Eureka, Colin Ferguson has become a household name and we hoped he would reach those heights.

What are your thoughts? Any actors or actresses that come to mind who you had high hopes would do well, but didn't?
