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.

OzSteimetz

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.

There are few conspiracy theories that annoy me lately as much as the QAnon conspiracy theory. Other than it posing a grave threat to our democracy, I can't imagine why anyone in their right mind would take any of it as gospel. It's also remarkably easy to debunk––I'm still waiting for "the Storm" amid the ever-changing goalposts, by the way.

Turns out there are quite a few other conspiracies out there annoy the hell out of people, as we discovered once Redditor Sonic-the-edge-dog asked the online community,

"What's a conspiracy theory that annoys you due to how easily disprovable it is?"

The gift of hearing is an awesome thing. So many of us have the luxury to take it for granted.

How many 'first' sounds do we hear regularly that barely register for memory?

For those of us who are given sound after never having it or losing it and regaining it, have an appreciation most of us will never understand.

They embrace sound with such thankfulness and clarity. They can also tell you when hearing disappoints.

After all they have a build up of imagination in mind.

Redditor u/XxXNoobMaster69XxXx was hoping the formerly hearing impaired would sound off a bit by asking:

Ex-deaf people of reddit, what was the most underwhelming sound, respective to your expectations?

Schools are like their own little universes. A whole mini-society, complete with its own specific rules and customs, some of which make absolutely no sense whatsoever. You can't help but wonder what the faculty was thinking in some of these cases, or why no one stopped to think about why they were so weird.

People lie. The tagline of the popular TV series House, MD, was "everybody lies." That includes my parents and yours, folks.

Sometimes parents lie to their children to protect them. Sometimes they lie because it's easier than telling the truth. But unfortunately, not all parents are good people. Some lie to manipulate their children, or hold control over them. And that story is way more common than any of us would like to think.
