Danny Aiello has always been in crime movies usually with mafia related themes. Whether a good guy or bad guy he's doing the same thing.

Even though I love her I'm going to have to say Angelina Jolie the same exact character in all her movies!

All play the same role in every movie. They are niche actors. The Oscars should create an award for this type of acting. I enjoyed the movies that they have done but i am somewhat over the type of characters that they always portray.

Emma stone doesn't play the same roles....

That's because more often than not, producers and directors always look for a suitable actor who would resemble the character in every way, thus...they'll be just playing "as is" in any part they portray.

Jack Nicholson is a good example of type casting.

For awhile, earlier in her career, Meryl Streep played an awful lot of neurotic, messed-up women to the point where I wouldn't watch her movies. While her performances, for the most part, might have been stellar, I couldn't stand the characters she was portraying.

Good point...actually, the only time I enjoyed her acting (other than Sofie's Choice) was in "Death Becomes Her" a dark comedy with Goldie Hawn...

With the stay-young looking generation of today...this movie is bizarrely fitting.
