Top 10 Stars Who Are Always Typecast In Their Movies

July 20th, 2013 11:00am EDT

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 ...

Every Christmas I face the same question: how many times can I watch the same old batch of Christmas movies before I get tired of them?  Answer: three.  To that end, I've compiled a list of five non-traditional Christmas movies for you to turn to when you get tired of TBS's 24-hour marathon of "A Christmas Story."

5 - Die Hard (1988)

Outside of “A Christmas Story,” “Die Hard” is my go-to Christmas movie.  “But ‘Die Hard’ is an action movie!” you might say, and you’d be correct.  But “Die Hard” is special, because it’s an action movie set during Christmas.  “Die Hard,” starring Bruce Wil...
