tom cruise (weak minded, corrupt) steven seagal ( soooo fake) Jaden smith (piggyback) Jennifer aniston (tries to be funny.... fails) and schwarzenegger for not appearing in T4 (made that film too serious)
It's not so much a specific role they played as much as it is about the fact that they repeat said role a million billion times. Seeing an actor do the same thing over and over and over really irritates the hell out of me.
The best example I can think of is Michael Cera. Think about it: he got his big break playing a quirky, awkward, dorky teen with similar friends and a lack of any confidence or social skill. He then continued playing this part until "Scott Pilgrim," in which he played the exact same character with the exception of a main character title.
It's come to the point where I can write his character for his next movie without even knowing the title. In this movie he'll stammer quietly, make awkward small-talk, refuse to take control of any situation he's presented, and ultimately woo whatever romantic interest he's assigned despite his "personality."
It's not necessarily the character I find annoying, it's the fact that he keeps performing it over and over, and gets paid for it too.
I dont so much hate the actors so much as i get mad whenever i see this particular actress Michelle rodriguez cast as the EXACT SAME role of the character with a bad attitude that becomes an ally and dies in every movie ive seen her in i always think its an insult to her talent that she always gets killed off
Yup. :/ We havent hung out in awhile or talked at all ^^ ive only seen you post some epic pictures every now and then ^^ Oh i'd love the opportunity to come down to DA headquarters and meet you and Angelo soitira ( HE IS GOD XD ) and the rest of the Da staff,Deviantart is my absolute favorite website on the net ^3^.
That's a tough one, I think there are some actors that get over used for movies. "The last Samurai", for example: good movie, good actors, I think Cruise did a good job with the part. However, I think someone else (maybe a lesser known actor) could have made the movie better. I think directors (and whoever else decides on casting) need to be less worried about who they cast, and focus more on the movie as a whole. Movies don't need high profile actors, if you're trying to fill the cast with them, there is probably something wrong with the movie itself.
Excellent points. I'll admit that I will occasionally see a movie just because of a particular actor/actress, but it's usually not the big names that draw me. I like movies with little known actors as well.
When I was very young I watched "Leave it to Beaver". I could not stand the actor that played "Eddie". Then, one day I thought to myself, "hey, this guy has actually made me dislike him!" After that I loved the guy! And after that, my very favorite actors usually play villains. They make things much more interesting!
I used to dislike Adam Sandler. Not for one roll, but for playing the basically the same roll in many movies. He played the idiot roll in too many movies when he started out. You could see he had talent to do more. After a while I just stopped watching his movies, not because they weren't good movies, but because I just didn't want to watch the "Adam Sandler" roll.
