When it comes to having a successful acting career in Hollywood one of the most important things is picking and choosing the right roles to play, as a bad choice could lead to less opportunities in the future. While some stars in Hollywood like to mix up their roles and show their diversity as an actor, there are others that are always drawn towards the same role that they play on a regular basis. Here we take a look at a few Hollywood stars who do just that.
Actress Michelle Rodriguez has developed a reputation as being a bit of a badass during the course of her acting career and that has a lot to do with the roles that she has played over the years. Michelle regularly plays the action hero on screen, taking on the tough girl role in movies such as the Fast and Furious franchise, as well as the Resident Evil films.
While Michelle Rodriguez is often seen as the tough girl on screen, Jennifer Aniston is quite the opposite, taking on roles that are always very similar to that of Rachel Green who she played in Friends for so many years. This is evident from her roles in movies such as Along Came Polly, The Break Up and The Switch, to name just a few.
It is not just the women in Hollywood who become typecast though, as actor Michael Cera will be able to tell you. When it comes to playing the role of the lovable geek, there are not many who do it as well as Michael Cera does, which is probably why he has done it on so many occasions. Michael has played a similar type of character in films like Superbad, Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist and Juno, among others.
There are plenty more stars in Hollywood who have become typecast over the years so feel free to share some others with us.
