9 Actors Who Play the Same Character in Every Movie

Redemption Lionsgate

Hang in Hollywood long enough, and you're bound to be typecast every now and then.

But for some actors, playing to type isn't just laziness or the final tremors of a fading career. Keeping their characters close to home is just what they do best, or at least what keeps the money flowing. And anyway, would you really want to see Jason Statham falling head-over-heels for Katherine Heigl in some lame romantic comedy? Neither would we. Get More »

Columbia Pics Columbia Pics

How do you end a comedy movie about the apocalypse? Hilariously, of course, but if Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen had their initial drothers for the end to "This is the End" — you know, back when Daniel Radcliffe was wand-swatting away the then-atrocious script — it would've been an even more heavenly affair.

'Last Vegas' Trailer: 'The Hangover' with Good (Old) Actors

So what would happen if you took "The Hangover" and replaced Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis and Bradley Cooper with some of the greatest actors of the last half century? Well, as this new clip from Yahoo! Movies shows, you'd have the first trailer for the upcoming comedy "Last Vegas," that's what.

We can't wait to see what blatantly derivative "idea" Hollywood comes up with next.

Not that "Last Vegas" looks bad. Actually, it looks kind of interesting, based solely on the fact that it features Michael Douglas, Morgan Freeman, Robert De Niro and Kevin Kline as a geriatric wolfpack out for one last weekend of crazy times before the old folks home comes to get them. Their excuse for their trip to Vegas? Bachelor party, naturally. Get More »

Trailer: 'Olympus Has Fallen' and Only Gerard Butler Can Get It Up

Hey guys, remember the movie "Air Force One," where terrorists kidnapped the president and he had to kick their asses to show that America is still number one? Well, imagine if that movie had combined with "Die Hard" and been set inside the White House rather than on an airplane, and you've pretty much just seen the entire new trailer for "Olympus Has Fallen."

But hey, at least this one has Morgan Freeman in it. That's got to be worth something, right? Get More »
