Are there movie or TV versions of one hit wonders

Actors or actresses that have been really good or memorable in one thing, and then disappeared?

Not looking for child actors, as that’s actually pretty common, but adults.

I remember someone once pointing out that everyone involved in Amadeus did not really go on to big projects.

As for TV, there's the Seinfeld Curse where the main actors were supposedly not able to do much afterwards.  These days, it only seems to apply to Jason Alexander and Micheal Richards as Julia-Louis Dreyfus and Jerry have had some fairly popular projects in the past few years.

Matt LeBlanc did OK. He had a five season showtime show and I think its current CBS is doing pretty good.

Biggest one I can think of is Alicia Silverstone had one big hit in Clueless then sort of fizzled out.

Oh yeah and Alex Winter after the 2 Bill & Ted's movies he disappeared.

David Schwimmer had multiple Madagascar movies, his portrayal of Robert Kardashian in People vs OJ was critically acclaimed and Emmy nominated.

Matthew Perry had a few series get cancelled, but he had 3 seasons of The Odd Couple recently.

Lisa Kudrow was on Bojack Horseman as the owl he dated. She's had a lot of guest and supporting roles since the show.

Yeah he is.

I knew this wouldnt be perfect, but there are a LOT of actors you dont really notice when they do other shit.
Outside Emily Rose, Quarantine, and White Chicks, Dexter’s sister’s a ghost really.

Nah, it was renewed. CBS likes their action shows!

.

She's in an upcomming show. But she was also popular before Clueless.

Fred Savage after Wonder Years/Princess Bride, his Brother Ben for Boy Meets World. A lot of childhood actors really. Tia and Tamera Mowry are another set.
