Over the course of time, we have been entertained by some brilliant performances by our favorite actors in movies. These have not only set the bar high for many others, but also for the stars themselves. In fact, they haven’t been able to top their roles in their best films, and continue to play similar such characters in other movies as well. Take Jim Parsons for example. He’s always going to be Sheldon Cooper to you and me. There are a few more like him though. Read on to find out more about such actors, who have been typecast, and are chosen to play the same roles, over and over again.
Michael Cera – That Awkward Teenager
When you see Michael Cera in any film or TV show, he’s basically doing what he did on Arrested Development – playing the awkward indie teenager with raging hormones. Don’t believe us? Check him out in the films he’s appeared in.
Helena Bonham Carter – That Woman Who’s Always a Nutjob
When you’re Tim Burton‘s wife, you sorta get typecast as the woman who’s a little whacked out. However, Helena Bonham Carter did a fine job as Bellatrix Lestrange in Harry Potter, and maybe that’s what got her typecast as the lady who’s a little off her rocker.
Morgan Freeman – That Dude Who Has a Really Good Voice
After he played God in Bruce Almighty, Morgan Freeman was actually signed for some films just for his voice. Basically, he’s Hollywood ka Amitabh Bachchan.
Samuel L. Jackson – That Guy Who’s Always Being Badass
Two words. Pulp Fiction. Enough said.
Jennifer Aniston – That Bubbly Chick Everyone Likes
When you look at Jen in Friends or Marley & Me or any other film she’s in, she’d always be playing that hot blonde everyone loves. She’s a great kisser, your mom will love her and she’s always around. Yup! Everytime.
