10 Unusual Film Roles That Helped Actors Avoid Being Typecast

Even really good actors seem to fall into a certain type that they revert back to over and over again. Roles that are in their comfort zone, so they have confidence in their ability to perform. Think about Daniel Day-Lewis, one of the greatest actors alive — even he has a type of character that he likes to portray. And really, you can’t blame them. After all, the reason casting directors keep bringing them in for the same kind of roles is because they’re pretty good at it.

But then there are some actors who make a conscious effort to avoid being typecast, by strategically taking roles that are so far from their normal fare that filmmakers and audiences can’t help but see them in a different light.

The Plotline of ‘The ExpendaBelles’ Doesn’t Sound Very Empowering to Women

6 February 2014 9:00 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Well, this is problematic. We’ve long been berated with rumors of an imminent female-centric spin on the popular Expendables franchise, the clunkily named The ExpendaBelles, but actual details on the project have been consistently slim. All we’ve really known has been neatly encapsulated in said title – it’s The Expendables but with ladies! – but now the film has both a director and a very distressing plotline to either A) recommend it or B) send potential audiences members running for the proverbial hills. For now, we’re checking off option B. Deadline reports that Robert Luketic has come on board to direct the feature, which makes the film sort of a perfect marriage of his directorial territory: bad action films (Paranoia, Killers) and projects that are aimed at women while also being insulting to them (Monster-in-Law, The Ugly Truth, Legally Blonde).

Where You’ve Seen the Men of ‘Downton Abbey’ Before

31 January 2014 7:00 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Ah, the circle of stardom and the wonder of That Guy. Is there any greater thrill in pop culture than noticing someone you’d never noticed before? Probably not. Which says a lot about pop culture. Downton Abbey – peradventure because it’s an ensemble from a different country — has a host of familiar faces you can’t quite place. The woman carry a kind of instant fame with them (Elizabeth McGovern is an Oscar nominee and Maggie Smith is Maggie Smith), but the main men have a head-scratchier past. So here’s a brief primer on where you’ve seen these guys before. Prepare by aiming your hand at your forehead. Jim Carter Probably the most diverse career history of them all, Jim Carter appeared prominently in Shakespeare in Love as Ralph, the actor who plays Nurse in the play within the movie (I’m confused, too), but it’s hardly the first time he’s been »
