People Break Down Which Actors Were Perfectly Cast In Their Roles

People Break Down Which Actors Were Perfectly Cast In Their Roles

Sometimes an actor/actress comes along that is able to reach the audience on a deeper level due to the sincere portrayal of their roles. The actor that immediately comes to mind is Robin Williams. Although it is difficult to pinpoint which of his roles was the best because truly they all seemed made for him.

His genuineness shone through in Patch Adams and left us all with a tear in our eye. One of the best castings still today. The quality of casting made the film impactful and gave life to the characters. Which is something all directors strive for.

One Redditor wanted to hear what other people thought were stand out matches of actor/actresses and their casting.

Acceptable-Driver-99 asked:

What actor/actress was 100% right for the role?"

The perfect frozen queen…

“Tilda Swinton as the White Witch Jadis in ‘Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.’ She OWNED that role. Was hoping they'd do "The Magician's Nephew" because that's the origin story of both Jadis and Narnia itself.” Nachtjaeger68

Ok but have you seen him as Dr. Horrible? *chef's kiss*

“The way that Neil Patrick Harris played Barney Stinson still astounds me." Senator_Knowledge

Just Alan Rickman, periodt…

"Alan Rickman as Severus Snape." jimiffondu

“One of his best. He also delivered a few phenomenal scenes in galaxy quest.” MercenaryCow

“He also did an exceptional voice acting for Marvin the Robot in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Absolutely captures the dreadful depression of the character.” krngc3372

I shudder to think…”

​“Viggo Mortensen as Aragorn. I shudder to think of the effect Nicholas Cage could have had in that role.” GarrulousMustelid

Some voice actors…

“Going in a different direction, there are some voice actors that I feel like they perfected their role. Will Arnett as Bojack Horseman. H Jon Benjamin as Archer (and also in Bob's Burgers).”

“See also, Kristen Schaal as Louise in Bob's Burgers. Mark Hamill as The Joker in like everything for forever. James Earl Jones as Mufasa. Seth Green as Joker in the Mass Effect series.”

“One I haven't seen on here yet for live action… Ashton Kutcher as Kelso in That 70's Show. More importantly, Kurtwood Smith as Red Forman.” Richard_TM

​Dame Maggie Smith is a treasure.

“Also Maggie Smith as the Dowager Countess in Downton Abbey.” cadmiumredorange

He truly became the role…

“Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool. He was born for that role.” Phantom120_


​“Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow.” Calamity_Bane

“YES I was talking to my bf about this the other day, no one could have fit the role better imo he really took it and made it his own and he's such a great charming a**hole.” sleepsanity

more obscure cartoon/comic ones…”

​“I'm gonna go for two more obscure cartoon/comic ones. Shelley Duvall as Olive Oyl, genuinely think no actress ever could have been a more accurate Olive. Gerard Depardieu as Obelix- Name another famous big fat French actor with a massive nose, he was perfect.” austinpowerstwo

But not you Leto…

​“Two people said it, but I'll say it. Heath Ledger was a great joker. Jack Nicholson, too. He was a fantastic joker.

Oh, and Mark Hamil. Actually, there have been many fine Jokers.” Geoclasm

​When a good fit and chemistry come together on-screen magic happens, the audience is captivated, and the actor can take a good film into greatness. Excuse us while we go for some re-watching.

We can all agree that there is something to appreciate about every country in the world, but there are arguably some countries that appear to have their ducks more consistently and happily in a row than others.

While it would be easy to let pride get in the way and continue to do things the same way, the more productive thing would be to learn from the countries who have figured out a better way to do certain things, whether it's healthcare, food banks, or other services.
