Top 10 Stars Who Are Always Typecast In Their Movies

July 20th, 2013 11:00am EDT
Grown Ups 2
People tend to judge a movie by its cast. For example, when you see Adam Sandler on the poster of a new movie, you'll expect it to be a family comedy. We all know the saying, "Don't judge a book by its cover," but how can we not?

We at Starpulse would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge our favorite actors and actresses who have been diagnosed with a severe case of typecastitis. Symptoms: playing a certain type of character for way too long, earning nicknames like “Hollywood’s bad girl,” and people being able to guess an entire movie’s plot-line just by seeing the actor’s face on ...

Michael Cera
Michael Cera was mugged in Chile while he was in the country filming his new drug fueled adventure film Crystal Fairy.

The Arrested Development star was targeted by thieves when he went for a late night stroll on his own, but was left unharmed.

He tells Us Weekly magazine, "I was alone, so I had a target on my back... They took a 10-year-old phone. It was a fortunate mugging!"

Nevertheless, the 25 year-old actor insists he had a great time backpacking through the region: "We slept in bunk beds and ate bread and cheese."

Crystal Fairy was written and directed by Sebastián Silva and is...

After a six-year hiatus, the cast of "Arrested Development" has started working on a new season. The series aired on FOX from 2003 to 2006, and the new season will be available on Netflix next year.

Critics loved the series, which became a cult hit, but it never drew a large audience and barely got approved for its second and third seasons. To fans' delight, last year executives announced the dysfunctional Bluth family would be back to start filming 10 new episodes.

Emma Stone's Little Leather VMAs Dress - Hot Or Not?

September 18th, 2010 6:15pm EDT
Emma Stone
Emma Stone stars in "Easy A," which opened in theaters on Friday. The rising star wore a hot leather dress at this year's MTV Video Music Awards last Sunday; and with her new film getting great reviews we're guessing that Emma's movie career is going to get pretty hot too!

Emma says that she's resigned herself to the fact she'll never star in a Broadway musical - because her voice isn't strong enough to cope with the grueling stage demands.

The "Zombieland" star grew up performing in regional theater in her native Arizona, and loved seeing Broadway shows as a kid.

But the 21 year old pre...

She says she was drawn to her role in "Scott Pilgrim" because she related to her character Stacy. She said, "I think the relationship between Stacy and Scott rings really tr...

Review: 'Scott Pilgrim' Is A Knock-Out Punch For Gamers & Comic Book Fans

August 11th, 2010 10:00am EDT
Scott Pilgrim
Movies that adapt video games and comic books for mainstream audiences usually attempt to make the plot more accessible to the average viewer. In grounding the experience so that people can relate to it, often these works abandon the light-hearted and fantastic aspects that appeal to their followers.

What’s so absolutely wonderful about “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World” though is that it does not attempt to dumb itself down. The director Edgar Wright, of “Shaun of the Dead” and “Hot Fuzz” fame, has created a film with uncompromising vision directed towards a very distinct target niche: gamers...

Michael Cera has grown increasingly uncomfortable with his level of fame after a "scary" encounter with one "crazy" female fan who offered to give him oral sex.

The 22-year-old star is frequently recognised for his roles in films such as "Juno" and "Superbad," but he admits one excited woman went too far when she met him outside a movie theatre in Los Angeles one night.

Cera recalls how the fan, who had been smoking, approached him and said, "You look just like my fiance. Can I give you a hug?" She embraced the actor before he had a chance to answer but he recoiled in horror when she then...

Come summer, even your easy-fit workweek chinos can seem heavy, stiff, and constricting. Maybe that's why New York's most discerning dressers have moved on from casual Fridays. Here, the stars of "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World" (Michael Cera, Jason Schwartzman, and Chris Evans) show us how to beat the heat while letting it all hang out, in the August issue of GQ.

Former Arrested Development star David Cross is adamant a planned movie adaptation of the TV show is "not going to happen" because "too much time" has passed since the series ended.

The cult TV sitcom was cancelled in 2006, and rumors of a film version were confirmed in January when actor Michael Cera said he had signed up, and his co-star Will Arnett revealed a script was close to completion with plans to shoot in 2010.

However, funnyman David Cross, who also appeared in the show, is convinced the movie plans will never come to fruition.

Hopes for 2010
It's a new year, and it's time to dump the Top Ten lists and look forward to the things we hope to see in the near future. What do we want to see more of? What do we want to see end? Who do we want to see naked? The questions are endless, so here goes:

I hope Megan Fox reconsiders her "no nudity on camera" stance. Halle Berry showed frontal in Swordfish, then did an explicit sex scene in Monster's Ball, and then she got an Oscar. Just saying.

I hope Lost doesn't fall into its disturbingly common habit of making absolutely no sense for episodes at a time. I also hope the finale is rev...

I haven't seen James Cameron's "Avatar" yet, although it's the top movie on my list right now. I've heard the film showcases some impressive visual effects, but that its dialogue and character development are not as strong. Regardless, I'm still anxious to see for myself.

2010 starts out with the release of "Daybreakers," "Youth in Revolt," "Leap Year," "Crazy on the Outside," "Wonderful World," and "Bitch Slap."

25 Worst Movies Of 2009

Wow, there were some bad movies, like really bad, in 2009 but since we are optimists we like to think the good outnumbered the bad. We already discussed the good movies, and now we will feature the bad and ugly of 2009. Sometimes bad movies are entertaining enough to keep our attention for a few hours but sometimes the movies are so bad we induce vomiting to make us feel better.

Couples Retreat (25) had the cast and the budget to be a funny flick and it came out in the fourth quarter of 2009 when the best movies already came out. This movie was bad, not funny, and it might have marked th...
