Whatever Happened To...?

Haley Joel Osment



“I see dead people” is one of the most used catchphrases in cinema history. The line helped to usher Haley Joel Osment into the realm of stardom. There was a time when every director was itching to work with Osment and then, as suddenly as it hit, everything stopped. Despite doing a lot of voice over work, and a play on Broadway, Osment has been curiously absent from the big screen. I know there was the whole car crash incident that hindered things for a bit, but enough time has passed now. Osment is still at the prime age where quality roles should be abundant. The time is right for Hollywood to take another chance on Haley Joel Osment.

  2. @Scare Sarah - LOL. I do remember seeing a few people shed tears at the ending of AI. I really liked the film, though it went on 20 minutes longer than it needed to.
