Some actors were just born to be typecast.
“This man has no dick.” And neither do the movies anymore.
If you’re going to write a part specifically for William Atherton, it’s probably going to be inspired by his three most famous roles. That was clearly the case when he was cast for an episode of the TV series Lost, in which he plays a slimy high school principal character who was conceived with him in mind. It was a throwback to the assholes he embodied in Ghostbusters, Real Genius, and the first two Die Hard movies. Another one of his dicks.
Unfortunately, there aren’t enough people writing dick parts specifically for Atherton to play on the big screen. It’s been 20 years since his last (slightly) memorable movie continuation of the type, in Bio-Dome, and many of his fans probably aren’t even aware that he’s still alive and working regularly.

(We.re not even going to get into the glut of Syfy-style shark-themed movies like Sharknado, Jersey Shore Shark Attack, and the Mega Shark Vs. franchise.) A new entry into this realm, The Shallows, is on the way this summer and just dropped a new trailer. You can check out angry sea life terrorizing Blake Lively below. Dropped on People Magazine.s Twitter page, this trailer for The Shallows doesn.t reinvent the wheel, but there.s definitely the potential for this to be solid, fear-of-nature-style thriller. As you can see, there.s not a lot of detail. We meet Blake Lively.s »
