  • In my sociology and film class in college, they talk about actors and actresses being type cast into roles with a theme. Now typecast is also another factor that plays into this but one example that was given is Sean Connery always slaps women. I wanted to challenge that it would be fun to watch all his movies and see if that was true... but stuff like that is where it gets fun and interesting. However type casting is probably the easiest way to see this. There is probably some like Hugh grant and Mathew mcconahagy that get all the romantic movie roles that are pretty close to the same character.

  • BRAD PITT! I don’t know I’m What way you meant, but I feel like Brad Pitt’s only capacity as an actor is to play himself in every roll... There’s no change of mannerism, speech, or anything. It’s the same thing all the time. He’s good at acting like himself.

  • Almost every actor does that. It's because when a casting director sees a role they type it and then only see actors that fit that type. The only actor's don't play the exact same roles all the time are ones that fit multiple types or when they are trying to break out of type.
