We’ve all seen it. The same old actors, in the same roles, playing a near identical character in every film they’ve ever been in. It always catches us off guard when they abandon genre and switch things up a bit.
Here’s Inner-Geeks list of some notable actors and singers who have stepped out of their comfort zone to show us they have much more to give.
Comment away and have your say and get yours added to the list!
Robin Williams – 1 Hour Photo
Ummmm Creepy sums it up..
Vince Vaughn – Psycho
WTF Owen Wilson isn’t in this one??
Justin Timberlake – Alphadog
JT becomes a drug dealers bestest Buddy in ‘AlphaDogs’. Bit of a change up from NSYNC.
Jim Carey – Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Eternal Sunshine was a jump from his previous roles in ‘Liar Liar’, ‘Ace Ventura’ , ‘The Cable guy’, ‘The Mask’ and ‘Dumb and Dumber’ … You see where i’m going with this?
Hugh Laurie – House
Playing the Arrogant, Anti-Social doctor made a change from playing what i’m pretty sure was a mental patient in the Blackadder Series.
Here’s some classic House Moments:
Adam Sandler – Punch-Drunk Love
Finally a Movie that wasn’t a Happy Madison Production. I can’t complain thought I love Gilmore. “You eat pieces of shit for breakfast?”
Ryan Gosling – Lars and the Real Girl
Plays either a romantic bastard or uber fighting ninja but in Lars he purchased a Blow up Doll which apparently was very religious…
