Do you feel like you have new and fresh opportunities in life, just to know that they are the same?
Well, it turns out, it happens more often than you think. And this is especially true in the film industry. But we are not talking about movies, although they are guilty of it, but we are talking about special actors and their roles.
People are making lists of famous names in the online film industry and the same characters they keep casting, where only the names change effectively, but you always find either that male friend, or a former police officer, or comedy relief Or whatever
Check out Redditors’ most spot-on hits in numerous AskReddit posts (Here, Here, And Here) Below the curated list on the topic, and why not vote for and share some of the big names who keep getting selected for the same old role movie after movie.

Dwayne Johnson plays “The Rock” in each of his films.
Rock is always a good bully.
I love it, but in the last ten to fifteen years Morgan Freeman has been basically Morgan Freeman in everything.
Morgan Freeman has always been an old mentor to the main character, from being God to Red, to Vitrovius.
Bruce Willis has always been a retired police officer / military man who is forced to return to justice / military life after some tragic events.
Adam Freaking Sandler ….
Make some weird noises, scream a coup time. Everything with a cheerful, lost face. Rinse, repeat
Ryan Reynolds. Sure he looks good with his smoking wife, but I mean people come. I don’t think I’ve ever seen him hug a character – I just think “Hey, Ryan works like that in the real world.”
Ryan Reynolds has made a career out of being a quick-witted quick-witted quipper. He is now literally dead pool in every movie, except for Uber’s violence, mutation abilities and breaking the 4th wall.
It’s not a complaint, it’s just a niche that he has managed to adopt very successfully.
Nicholas Cage photographed Nicholas Cage.
To his credit, he has a ton of Nicholas Cages in his stock, mostly by combining different levels of insanity.
Samuel L. Jackson plays a role in each of his films.
Samuel L. Jackson is always the same.
John Wayne played John Wayne to a great extent in every film in which he was, although his character names were different.
Will Ferrell is a bit of a one-truck pony. Of course there are big differences in his character based on the story line, but at the end of the day, his version of Anchorman, Pro Ice Skater, Basketball Player, Wedding / Funeral Crusher, Nescar Racer, etc. is huge. Is. The same character every time ..
As much as it hurts to say that, Chris Pratt. It always feels like he’s playing himself in different scenarios.
Whenever Chris Pratt is in a movie I always think of him as Bert McLean: Dinosaur Wrangler / Space Hero / Whatever.
Sarah Jessica Parker is Carrie Brad Shaw in every movie. Even in movies before Sex and the City. Even the witch who plays in Hawke’s Pox is Carrie Brad Shaw.

Gwyneth Paltrow’s blonde, tan and her hair aren’t good either. I’m a fan of a friend so I can confirm that he is in a very high ranking.
Ever since Friends premiered, I’ve never seen him play a role that isn’t somewhat like Chandler. Behavior, humor, insecurity, etc. Which makes me think – where does Chandler stop and where does Matthew Perry start?
Sydney Underfits responded:
seriously! A nervous, angry, but thinks she’s the coolest and that the fastest girl is coming.
I hate to say that, but Jack Nicholson hit a certain age where he said, “I’ve done acting.”
Notable films include Jack Nicholson in Clown Makeup, Jack Nicholson is a Werewolf and Boston classic Jack Nicholson is a Gangster.
You may not know his name, but you know his face. He is in everything, and the roles he plays are almost always harsh and unacceptable.
John Brenthall. Always a tough guy. Although he does it well. He liked it very much in February.
There are a handful of boys who basically just play in the crowd. Tony Cerico and Vincent Pastor (Paulie and Big P ** sy from Supranos) are good examples.
Jennifer Lawrence plays a 20-year-old actress who has the same acting skills and is limited to over-acting on her way through a community college drama.
Johnny Goodman Depp. I recently saw Benny and June again. I forgot that he could play a role other than his usual one. Dude, I miss the classic Johnny Depp.
Johnny Depp as “another weird, pale, weird haired, silly moving character.” Coming soon. Again
I’m not really a movie fan, so if I’m wrong, correct me. I haven’t seen Denzel Washington mentioned yet. He seems to always play the role of a rude man who kicks her ass every time. Sure, he’s been a bad cop, a gangster, etc., but he’s always been that bad guy. I mean, can you imagine him playing some weird idiot? I don’t think he can eliminate any other kind of character.
Gary Oldman He always plays a role that is unrecognizable because he always looks and works very differently.
