Have you ever felt you were watching an actor play the same character he has played a million times before? Here at Best For Film, we are tired of watching characters phone in the same predictable performances for an easy paycheck. What follows are 20 actors we would like to see diversify from their trademark schtick and put in some overtime at the office that is Hollywood.
And it’s not George W. Bush.
It may have only been two days since we reported the heavily spoiler guarded news that Mel Gibson was set to make a guest appearance in Todd Phillip’s sequel to last year’s hit comedy The Hangover, but now it appears that Mr. Gibson has gotten all Keyser Soze on us. Why? Because just like that – *poof* – he’s gone.
SPOILER ALERT! ACHTUNG! POZOR! We have here the identity of The Hangover sequel’s sure-to-be-wacky celebrity cameo; one that will attempt to top Mike Tyson’s air drumming and face pummeling guest appearance. But if you would like to be surprised when the film (‘s trailer) hits, then back away from the article. Run now or forever hold your peace, because you can’t say we didn’t warn you!
For fans of 2009’s smash hit The Hangover it’s time to rejoice, as we can confirm that the original movie’s troublesome trio of Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis have all signed up for the film’s sequel. Despite earlier hesitance from the movie’s stars to commit to the sequel, it is proposed that shooting for The Hangover 2 will commence sometime in July, with Cooper reportedly so eager to commence filming that he has pulled out of rom-com This Means War (which was also due to commence filming in July).
The latest in a steady stream of ‘bromance’ comedies that have been infiltrating the cinema since Anchorman and Knocked Up were surprise hits, you know what you’re in for when you go to rent this film from your local Blockbuster. That said, this film was a box office triumph when it hit cinemas as word spread it was a cut above most frat-boy comedies. But after all the hype, upon finally viewing this film we were underwhelmed.
