Art is subjective. We all don't agree on what is a superlative and what is not. So when it comes to judging acting and thespians it can be difficult. Some people are decent and entertaining because we enjoy their same old shtick. But you can't all that range. Some actors make a brand and a fortune playing the same part on repeat. It's not a sin but it's also not... "Oscarworthy."

Redditor u/HotfoxK wanted to discuss the thespians that seem to repeat performance by asking.... What actor is the most guilty of playing the same exact character every film?

Same Ole Chuck

Charlie Sheen could only play characters named Charlie or he wouldn't respond on set when called upon.

He basically plays the role of charlie sheen, the drunken son of an actor.

Woody

Seems to me Woody Allen is always the same person in every movie, himself.

justahdewd

Even when Woody Allen himself isn't cast in one of his own movie, there's still a "Woody Allen" character with his exact same mannerisms portrayed by another actor or actress.

The Hart

Kevin Hart.

The Rock and Kevin Hart always play themselves, which is why I actually kinda enjoyed the "Jumanji" remake because they were actually forced to play a role and it made the comedy land more than their normal stuff.

Jason

"You know what you're getting with a Jason Statham film. He will beat people up. He will crash cars. He will do an unconvincing American accent." - The Guardian (2015).

Jeff

I love watching the dude, but Jeff Goldblum is Jeff Goldblum in every role I've ever seen him in. From Jurassic Park to apartment hunting commercials.

PopUpYoshiBomb

He was asked in a recent interview about this - about always playing "Jeff Goldblum," and whether that bothered him as an actor.

He said, "No, and every year I get better and better at it."

Angst Girl

Michelle Rodriguez has never been anything other than an angsty tomboy.

The only time Michelle Rodriguez has changed was in the Resident Evil movie where she played a suburban, environmentally conscious pseudo-hippie.

Though she also played another character in the same movie which was basically Michelle Rodriguez.

The Norris Way

Years ago, I said Chuck Norris was the absolute worst. He could have the exact same facial expression if you told him his wife died or he won the presidential election. The man cannot emote to save his life.

skjellyfetti

He's from a time when people wanted serious cowboy types, weaning off westerns.

Tim Allen is basically just playing himself in every thing. Only role that's a little different is Buzz Lightyear.

Steven Then and Now

90's Steven Segal: "Hey, imyourzer0, I heard you were running your mouth about me. Think you're a tough guy, huh? Oooh, big tough guy here in front of your internet buddies. Is that it, huh? Let me tell you something: You're just a big wussy. You're some wannabe tough guy who's actually a little b**ch. So why don't you put on your little dress and sing us a song? You know what? Let me help you hit those high notes."

Breaks imyourzer0's wrist.

2020 Steven Segal, from his living room easy chair: "Mumble, mumble, wheeze, imyourzer0, mumble, tough guy?"

In an entirely different place (probably Romania), a slimmer, younger stunt double with his back turned to the camera breaks imyourzer0's wrist.

Katherine Heigl. Frazzled, neurotic, hot girl who has life thrown at her in a way that causes her to take a step back and calm the hell down.

Y'all know that one Hannah Montana song? “Everybody makes mistakes! Everybody has those days!" That's the song I sing to myself every time I accidentally burn myself while making ramen. It comforts me to know, however, that there are a lot of worse mistakes out there than some spilled ramen. Who knew?

When I was younger, it seemed every adult believed that you couldn't swim for several hours after eating. Why did they all believe this? I fought them on this all the time, by the way. I shouldn't have had to, just because I'd eaten some barbecue during a pool party. Guess what, though? That belief is unfounded.

As much as we're not supposed to feel satisfaction upon observing the struggles of other people, it can be hard to resist a silent, internal fist pump when some blunder occurs immediately after we tried to help the person prevent it.

One of the most upsetting aspects of the Covid-19 pandemic––which is saying a lot, frankly––is the number of people who have been so affected by misinformation and disinformation. You know the ones to which I refer: These are the people who are convinced the virus is a hoax despite the lives it's claimed and the devastation it has wrought on society at large. Disinformation kills––there are stories of people who remained convinced that Covid-19 is a hoax even while intubated in the ICU, even up to their last breath.

After Redditor asked the online community, "Doctors of Reddit, what happened when you diagnosed a Covid-19 denier with Covid-19?" doctors and other medical professionals shared these rather unsettling stories.
