What does it say when I still have to Google Jason Statham just to recognize him?

Most of the actors mention in this thread are gimmick or current good status actors that basically are feeding off of popularity, and dont particularly have great acting skills...

Its all about stereotypes and typecasting for them.. so once that goes out the window.. it become difficult for them to actually create good work..

It means that you recognize faces more than names?

Jason Statham actually isn't a bad actor at all, he's no Daniel Day Lewis but he's not on Ben Affleck's level either. Watch 'Snatch', 'Lock Stock and two smoking Barrels', and 'The Bank Job'. He's kind of one dimensional, but it's not a bad dimension. He can do comedy and action, and in the bank job was pretty adept at drama.

He was mediocre and playing the same version of himself that he always plays...


Are you saying that he was actually 'great' in that flic.. or that you are okay with his persona, and there for very much enjoyed the movie?

Agree about Jason Statham not being a terrible actor... I consider him more of a Harrison Ford type actor, who basically only plays one character but only because thats exactly what the role calls for.


BTW, didnt realize who we were talking about until just recently as well.

I guess Im not the best person to speak about this.. because I profusely seek information on new films and actors.. so its hard for me to keep track of what actors are well known...

William H. Macy to me is well known seeing as how he is a prolific side cast actor.. but to the regular joe, he would not have a clue of who I speak of...

William H Macy's name doesn't even belong in this thread being mentioned with the likes of Ashton Kutcher and Hugh Grant . He was great in Fargo and the Cooler.

Trivia for you, in what 80s cult Classic did Macy play a character named JJ? Hint: it was a martial arts flick, one of his first roles.
