So yeah, it would seem that assumption still rings true - especially in the modern age.
I swear if things keep up the way its going, we'll end up like that, lol especially with meatheads like Vince Vaughn doing what they're doing, and people eating it up like its gold or something I think Vince Vaughn is very funny in his movies and he does play the same character in his movies but I don't care. Will Smith plays the same role too in his movies too.
He always saving the damn world but he is talented enough to play ALI. From William Thatcher in A Knight's Tale to the Joker in The Dark Knight, he portrayed a wide range of characters. I was at Wrigley Field the same day as Vince Vaughn who was there to sing "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" and promote Dodgeball.
Vince Vaughn may be the same in every movie, but his movies are still funny. After the game, the group I was with were walking to our car when we saw V. walking with his entourage and some security trying to get to his limo.
The fact that he is the same in every film is a different point though.
All the big Hollywood actors are the same in every film (Will Smith, Jim Carrey etc) Hollywood does not value versatility. Yes, they are all very similar but that does seem to be the way he is naturally.
He was kinda different in The Cell and some other movies I can't think of off hand where he plays villains.
I'm probably not going to see the his new movie (though Malin Akerman, Kristin Davis, and Kristen Bell are all very tempting) De Niro hasn't shown any true quality for over a decade now and Pacino hasn't given a good performance since the 70s.
From William Thatcher in A Knight's Tale to the Joker in The Dark Knight, he portrayed a wide range of characters.
Vince Vaughn may be the same in every movie, but his movies are still funny. anything worth watching aside from super-special effects driven plots can be found through the net, from independents- not affiliated with hollywood.
