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.

​“Maggie Smith as Professor McGonagall.” sexycthulu

“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_

Savvy?

​“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.

As if being a mom isn't hard enough, why does society want to heap on more stress. Women who can breastfeed need to be able to breastfeed. They need to do it whenever and wherever.

This has been a contentious, dramatic issue for generations. Some people just can't handle a boob out in public. A boob that is nourishing a child, I might add. When you're hungry, you don't want to wait, so why should a mom, make her baby wait until a more "appropriate" time?

God grow up.

Redditor u/Brace4Landing wanted to chat about what women have to do what they do, by asking:

What are your thoughts about women breastfeeding openly in restaurants?

Our society has a lot of strange ideas about masculinity. In fact, we have such a string of contradicting and misleading pieces of information on how a man "should" act that it has created a very emotionally stunted pool of men in the United States.

And it's usually traits that differ from this path of "most masculine" that, ironically, make us appealing to potential mates. When people look for a partner, they usually look for some preliminary signs of who that person is, and these are some of the traits that most stuck out upon first impression.

Generations are sometimes a little confusing. What makes up a generation? Is it their ages or year they were born? Is it what was happening politically during the formative years? Is it the economic landscape that either afforded or denied certain life expectations? Maybe it's the technology that they had access to.

According to the Pew Research Center, it's all of these things and more. All of these factors can influence a generations understanding of the world and ultimately their thoughts as the move through it.

Depending on what generation you're from, you might have seen the drastic shift from records to CDs to Spotify, from payphones and landlines to cellphones.

Marked by technology and pop culture references, the older generations might actually look to Gen Z, the iGen, with pitty for never truly understanding the struggle of walking to school up hill both ways.

What are the struggles of the past that young people today really won't understand unless they were there to experience it? We went to Ask Reddit to find out.
