What's Your Favorite Against-Type Performance?
Movie stars tend to get typecast pretty quickly -- once we (or, more accurately, Hollywood executives) see them do something well, we can only imagine them doing that same thing over and over. Every once in a while, though, an actor is given the chance to break out and do something different. Sometimes it's great. Sometimes it's terrible. Sometimes it's terrible but hailed as great just because we're seeing them in a new way.
So what are your favorite performances by actors playing against type? Is there a current actor you'd like to see tackle a new kind of role? Who and what?
