TV Actors Who Flopped in Films

Tony Danza

Who’s the boss of TV sitcoms? Tony Danza. Sadly, the same cannot be said for movies. The “Taxi” and “Who’s the Boss?” star tried in vain to parlay his small-screen stardom into a movie career with lead roles in a pair of disastrous movies. First came “Going Ape!” (actual synopsis: “Foster (Danza) is the sole heir to a five million dollar estate -- if he can keep his three pet orangutans safe and sound for the next two years!”) and “She’s Out of Control,” which Gene Siskel said made him so depressed he considered quitting his job as a movie critic. -Xfinity Entertainment Programmers
