Do you think actors are stereotyped for the roles they play?
It seems to me when you see an actor/actress they pretty much play the same sort of role in most any movie and you can pretty much assume what the movie is about. Are there any good actors out there with a broad spectrum of roles?
If ... Looks ... were the Index of a Person ... It would have been possible, to have Stereotyped ... or non-stereotype Actors ...
For Actors ... are cast in certain Roles, for Commercial reasons ... Mainly, people Associating certain Actions with Certain Players ...
James Kirk and James Bond ... are Actors Mimicking the Person, in a Role ...
People "pay" to watch Marilyn Monroe ... not the real Norma Jean Baker ...
You may be surprised ... but the Truth is ...
That Actors "do not" have a personality, they could call their "Own" ...
They hang on to sanity ... by Anchoring their lot to some person ... who could be their wife ... kids ... or acquaintence !
The Broad Spectrumming of Roles ... who is fit and who is unfit .... commercially ... to play the Role ... is with the Director and Producers ... not with the Actor.
I think Denzel Washington has played a variety of roles, but I do agree that actors and actresses mostly play one type of role. Also, Taraji P. Henson has a broader scope of acting roles as well. But is that really a bad thing? Some roles people are just fit for. I love Vince Vaughn and Sanaa Lathan in Romantic Comedies. You go with what works, and what pays. Some roles just work for you.
Yes, actors can become stereotyped very easily. They have admitted this themselves. And when the roles they're stereotyped for are no longer popular roles, their careers tend to die. I think they have to fight hard against being stereotyped.

I guess this is a two-part question.Who would you want to play you? Of all the screen legends I'd probably opt for Steve McQueen or one of the French New Wave actors like Alain Delon or Roger Duchesne, star of the criminally neglected classic Bob le flambeur [Bob the Gambler].These actors had...
