Paul Rudd and the Jud Apatow group of actors. Although I do like their movies.

Samuel L Jackson - angry, shouting black guy

Stifler. I can't even think of his real name, that's how typecast he is.

Agreeing with Morgan Freeman, I really like him, but he's always the wise old...whatever the role. coming out of retirement for one last case!

We can add "Road to Perdition" and "Catch Me if You Can" which were both really good good movies and Hanks played excellent roles in both.

Speaking of neurotic, messed-up women roles...Diane Keaton.

Done. I just summarized the plot for his next film.
Let's not forget keeping the same accent for every film he's in.
It doesn't matter if he's playing an American, a Russian, or some other nationality.
He's always going to be talking with a Brit accent and no one will care.

Sylvester Stallone, Jennifer Aniston, Reece Witherspoon, Angelina Jolie...in fact, most of them. Tom Cruise ALWAYS plays some sort of gun toting smart arse, probably because he IS one.

This is why I loathe "Hollywood" movies...so formulaic, so loud, so full of violence, predicatable plots and unbelievable characters.
