Actors Playing Against Type

Actors Playing Against Type

Fair enough. Though Alba was already terrible breaking out of type in DARK ANGEL, the tv series, and rather good (not mind-blowing, but good) in MACHETE, where ingenue is not exactly what she's doing...not too shabby in THE KILLER INSIDE ME, either, also a slighter stretch to call it an ingenue role.

Those horrible Stallone movies make Studs and Kitty seem almost bearable.

Once again, they ignored the classics: Bogart as a Mexican Bandit in VIRGINIA CITY, George Raft as a Dancing Chinese Gangster in LIMEHOUSE BLUES, Henry Fonda as a Russian Aristocrat in WAR AND PEACE... I could go on, but you get the point.
