A growing habit in Hollywood casting agent
s and screenwriter
s to write parts with certain actors specifically in mind. Whole movies are also sometimes written for the actors, often to dire consequences for the enjoyment and success of the movie.
- Adam Sandler - of late has been given the "angry young man" role, with either a speech impediment or a mental problem or both.
Movie chain: Happy Gilmore, Bulletproof, The Waterboy, Big Daddy, Little Nicky and too many others to mention. All have the same traits...
- Arnold Schwartzenegger - the big guy, the good guy, the secret agent, the tough man who has freaky shit done to him.
Movie chain: Terminator, Terminator 2: Judgement Day, Running Man, Total Recall, True Lies, The 6th Day.
Exceptions: Stigmata Updated: Thanks to Paradise Lost: End of Days, Kindergarten Cop (*Shudder*)
- Jim Carrey - the rubber-faced man with the strange voices and freaky habits.
Movie chain: Ace Ventura: Pet Detective (1&2), Liar Liar, The Grinch, The Cable Guy, The Mask.
Exceptions:The Truman Show
I am extremely sure there are many more, but the rest is up to you...
