Top 10: Actors Who Stopped Getting Typecast

This gallery contains 11 photos.

Ricky Gervais loves being typecast, he says that actors should do what they do best and not feel the pressure to play different parts.

However, this is clearly not the view of a lot of actors who seem to be trying to shake their ‘character’. Some have not been successful, such as Jack Black and Adam Sandler, who forever play the School of Rock and Happy Gilmore type casts.

Meanwhile other actors have been successful in breaking free from their typecast, and are in all sorts of films now…. Continue reading

Still one of my favourite movies after multiple viewings! I discovered this film in English class two years ago and (admittedly not actually getting it the first time I watched it) I have loved it since!

This film is thought provoking to say the least… Mind boggling too. (Believe you me, the people who said they got it after the first viewing were either lying or they read the plot on Wikipedia.)
