While the 2009 action-fantasy movie Dragonball Evolution was a terrible flop at the box office, its cast was not, especially Emmy Rossum, for one to count. Although the $30M movie was one bad movie in the Oscar nominee’s career, it didn’t hold her back from getting into better movies and TV shows, with her television series Shameless being the best one to date.
