Love Them Or Hate Them: These Actors Always Play The Same Roles

Wow, Kevin Hart is always Kevin Hart, no matter what film he's in! Find out who else is on the list.

There are actors like Christian Bale and Joaquin Phoenix, who are not afraid to go through extreme transformations to portray different roles, and there are others who seem to have the script written just so they could be themselves.

While other movie enthusiasts find the lack of versatility frustrating, some fans simply do not care and will continue to support the films and shows they are in.

Whether they already figured out the best formula that works for them, or they are too scared to experiment, here are 10 different actors who always portray the same role, no matter what show or movie they are in.

Kevin Hart in Get Hard-Jumanji-The Wedding Ringer

Kevin Hart

When the name Kevin Hart gets attached in a film, you know immediately that it's going to be hilarious. Comedy is Kevin's forte, and whatever film he is in, he never fails to deliver hilarious lines paired with some of his iconic open-mouthed, wide-eyed facial expressions. 

Vin Diesel

Vin Diesel

Whether it is from 'The Fast and Furious' or the XXX series, you can always expect this big guy to seriously kick some ass. Vin Diesel has always stuck to similar roles in action films, donning similar apparel and even having similar body language and movement. 

Dwayne Johnson - The Rundown- Jumanji

Dwayne Johnson

The former WWE wrestler, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson has made a whole career out of his muscular image. The actor never shies away from lead buff roles that require him to use his staunch physique to perform breath-taking stunts. Interestingly, he brings his infamous smolder (which is among his key powers as an avatar in the Jumanji films) in several films. 

Adam Sandler

Adam Sandler

Adam Sandler has since expressed that he didn’t get into movies to please the critics. "I got into it to make people laugh and have fun with my friends,” the actor told Independent UK. Therefore, we can't blame him for picking up similar roles over and over again. Whether he portrays a Hollywood talent agent in 'Grown Ups' or the eccentric father in 'That’s My Boy,' Adam Sandler is always the funny white guy who will leave us in stitches whenever we watch his films. In his recent Netflix film, Adam has taken a little step away from his comfort zone when he plays a delicatessen employee in Netflix's 'Hubie Halloween.'

Rebel Wilson

Rebel Wilson

Rebel Wilson was first considered as a breath of fresh air when she appeared in films and shows like 'Bridesmaids,' 'Bachelorette' and 'Pitch Perfect.' Her loud-mouthed and sarcastic, and self-deprecating character used to get applause from fans and critics alike. However, we know what happens when we stick to the same style for a long time? People start to get bored. Nonetheless, it seems like Rebel wouldn't stop anytime soon. Despite criticisms, Rebel continues to get similar projects, and she still has dedicated fans who continue to love her.

Tom Cruise

Jason Statham

The indestructible guy with a British accent, Jason Statham, always goes for films where he can hit, shoot, drive, and use his wits. He often plays agent or assassin roles and is usually seen with at least a gun or two on hand while he tries to accomplish a mission. 

Jennifer Aniston

Jennifer Aniston

This gorgeous actress always plays the role of damsel in distress. She's often not rich and is always struggling to make things in her life right. She'd always meet a guy she hates, but ends up falling for him anyway, remember 'Just Go With It,' 'The Bounty Hunter', and 'The Switch'

Tom Cruise

Tom Cruise

Tom Cruise is known for executing deadly stunts on his own. Whatever film or project you put him in, expect him to give you an over-the-top performance. He has jumped from one building to another, rode a motorcycle down the cliff, and hang on the helicopter for his 'Mission: Impossible' series. It doesn't matter if he's playing a pilot or an agent. Tom Cruise will always be that unbelievably skillful guy, with handsome looks. 

Michelle Rodriguez

Michelle Rodriguez

Michelle always portrays strong, bad-ass female characters, and she has a good reason for that.

“Throughout my 15-year career, I’ve always had this battle. I represent this specific demographic: Tomgirls. You don’t have a lot of them in Hollywood, and audiences respect that. I need to represent those little girls or women who think I’m cool," the actress told askmen.
