Ke Huy Quan was a well-known actor in the mid-1990s, appearing in such films as The Goonies, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, and the Karate Kid Part II. He was also the star of the hit movie Everything Everywhere All at Once, which was released in 1996. Unfortunately, after the release of the film, Quan was unable to find work in Hollywood, and he believes it was because of the film’s failure.
Quan recently spoke out about his experience in an interview, saying, “Nobody wanted me after Everything Everywhere All at Once. It was a huge flop, and nobody wanted to touch me.” He went on to explain that the film’s failure was a huge blow to his career, as he had been hoping it would be a major success.
Quan believes that the film’s failure was due to a lack of marketing and promotion. He said, “The studio just didn’t promote the movie enough. There was no marketing, no publicity, nothing. It was just dead in the water.” He also believes that the film’s failure was due to its unusual premise, which was a bit too ahead of its time.
Quan went on to say that he was grateful for the opportunity to star in the film, but that it had a negative impact on his career. He said, “I was so grateful for the opportunity to star in the film, but it didn’t do me any favors. I was essentially blacklisted after the film’s failure.” Quan also said that he believes he was overlooked for other roles due to the film’s failure.
Despite the setback, Quan has been able to find success in other areas. He has since appeared in several television shows, such as The X-Files, and has done voice work for video games. He has also written and directed a few films, including The Cave, which was released in 2005.
Quan’s story is a reminder that even when faced with adversity, it is possible to find success. Despite the failure of Everything Everywhere All at Once, Quan was able to find success in other areas and continue his career in Hollywood. His experience serves as a reminder that failure is not always the end of the road, and that success can be found in unexpected places.
