R.I.P. Amy Smart’s Career


 

It seems like just yesterday that you were an up-and-coming actress making her way through the ranks of Starship Troopers, Varsity BluesOutside Providence, and Road Trip but it wasn’t, Amy Smart. It was fifteen years ago.

Time flies, right? I mean, not for your career, but for the rest of us.

Still, we both arrived here at the same spot to pronounce your career as dead as of 8:20 p.m. on the cold, first Monday in March, the time that you first appeared in a commercial for The Single Moms Club.

It is a Tyler Perry movie.

Just let that sink in for a moment. You. Are. In. A. Tyler. Perry. Movie.

It wasn’t bad enough that you appeared in episodes — plural — of Men at Work. You had to go ahead and put the final nail in your coffin, didn’t you?

Well, you had a good albeit short run that peaked unnoticeably during a six-year run as a voice on Robot Chicken. Thanks for the memories and for that scene in Road Trip. You know which one I’m talking about.
