Top 10 Stars Who Are Always Typecast In Their Movies
July 20th, 2013 11:00am EDT
People tend to judge a movie by its cast. For example, when you see Adam Sandler on the poster of a new movie, you'll expect it to be a family comedy. We all know the saying, "Don't judge a book by its cover," but how can we not?
We at Starpulse would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge our favorite actors and actresses who have been diagnosed with a severe case of typecastitis. Symptoms: playing a certain type of character for way too long, earning nicknames like “Hollywood’s bad girl,” and people being able to guess an entire movie’s plot-line just by seeing the actor’s face on posters. Cure: playing against type (10% chance of success).
Type: The sarcastic goody goody two shoes who gets dragged into the craziest of situations.
As shown in: 'Princess Protection Program,' 'Monte Carlo' (since she plays two roles in this film, just thought we should point out that we're referring to Grace, not Cordelia), 'Another Cinderella Story.'
Defying the laws of nature in: 'Monte Carlo' (when she plays Cordelia), 'Spring Breakers,' 'Wizards of Waverly Place' (to some extent).
Type: The awkward, dorky teenager.
As shown in: 'Juno,' 'Arrested Development,' 'Year One,' 'Superbad,' 'Paper Heart,' 'Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist.'
Defying the laws of nature in: 'This Is The End,' 'Crystal Fairy.'
Type: Meek d-bag suffering from a severe case of 'peter pan syndrome' - in other words, a man-child.
As shown in: 'Click,' 'Just Go With It,' 'Jack and Jill,' 'Grown Ups,' 'Bedtime Stories.'
Defying the laws of nature in: 'Punch Drunk Love,' 'Reign Over Me.'
Type: Unmotivated sluggard with no ambition who somehow manages to score a girl way out of his league.
As shown in: 'Zack and Miri Make A Porno,' 'Knocked Up,' 'Superbad,' 'The 40-Year-Old Virgin,' 'The Green Hornet'
Defying the laws of nature in: 'Step Brothers.'
Type: Uptight control freak & workaholic who meets an intolerable d-bag and ends up falling in love with him.
As shown in: 'The Ugly Truth', 'Knocked Up', 'Killers.'
Defying the laws of nature in: 'One For The Money.'
Type: Charismatic British gentleman.
As shown in: 'Music and Lyrics,' 'Four Weddings and a Funeral,' 'Love Actually.'
Defying the laws of nature in: 'Cloud Atlas.'
Type: Badass tomboy who always plays a cop. And dies.
As shown in: 'Avatar,' 'Lost,' 'Resident Evil,' 'S.W.A.T.'
Defying the laws of nature in: Unfortunately, this hasn't happened yet but we'd love to see her in a chick flick one day. That would be rather interesting, wouldn't it?
Type: The cute girl-next-door and occasional best friend.
As shown in: '(500) Days of Summer,' 'Yes Man.'
Defying the laws of nature in: 'New Girl.'
Helena Bonham Carter
Type: The craziest b*tch you will ever meet who deserves to be locked up in Azkaban for life.
As shown in: 'Harry Potter,' 'Big Fish,' 'Alice in Wonderland,' 'Sweeny Todd,' 'Dark Shadows.'
Defying the laws of nature in: The upcoming live-action remake of 'Cinderella,' where she will play the fairy godmother. Sounds innocent enough but who knows? Our renowned on-screen villain might just turn the fairy godmother into the antagonist.
