The 15 Most Typically Typecast Actors
I pity actors who have been forced to settle into a typecast after playing a character that was too memorable. Janet Leigh and Anthony Perkins had a hard time finding work after the debut of Alfred Hitchcock’s thriller Psycho. Leonard Nimoy can only land odd jobs if the work is sci-fi or Star Trek related. Even now, Daniel Radcliffe can only ever be Harry Potter on the big screen. There are, however, many actors, allegedly with decent range, who consciously decide to perform the same roles over and over again. Below are 15 one-trick ponies who, for better or worse, are forever trapped in the same part by choice.
