One Dimensional Actors
« on: January 05, 2009, 09:01:23 PM »

The Marley thread mentioned Jennifer Aniston and Owen Wilson playing the same character in every movie, and it got me to thinking about other one-dimensional actors/actresses.

I'll add Vince Vaughn and Keanu Reaves to the list.

Who else would you put in this category?  I don't know if it's a question of having limited range or not taking on challenging roles, but I don't necessarily consider this just to include bad actors.  Some well-respected actors have had great careers out of playing one character very well and milking it for the rest of their lives.

I used to think of Matthew McConaughey as one-dimensional, but I just saw "Reign of Fire" today, and I'll reluctantly grant him 1.1 dimensions.

Clint Eastwood


regarding Tom Cruise...I would've agreed with you until I saw him play Les Grossman, the Hollywood Hebrew, in Tropic Thunder. 

IMO, he made the movie with that character.

Now that I think about it my comments in this thread:

http://www.golfhos.com/fo...ex.php/topic,10873.0.html

were probably due to me thinking Cruise is one dimensional (haven't seen Tropic Thunder).

I'd agree with Vince Vaughn as well. Also Affleck.
