I really wish they'd actually filmed it with that cast, maybe as a mini-series. Ian Holm as Frodo, John le Mesurier as Bilbo, Robert Stevens as Aragorn, Michael Hordern as Gandalf. Would have been amazing.

I don't really get the criticism of actors playing the same role, tbh. It's always aimed at more recent actors too. Nobody says "Charlie Chaplin, what a twat."

If an actor is strong in a particular type of role and is getting paid alot of money to do it and is happy continuing in those types of roles, I dont see what the problem is.

Schwarzeneggar should have just stuck to his action roots rather than trying to make those family friendly comedies. They were never his best films or even some of the best of that type of genre.
Dwayne Johnson should do the same.

At least Statham sticks to what he is good at.

I think it's partly the thing of knowing that you're on limited time in the action genre and trying to branch out a bit before someone younger takes your place.

Also, most of America kind of did. Assuming Americans at the time thought Communists were twats.

Alright, but none of them were saying it because he kept playing the tramp. Or maybe they were, maybe there were scores of people sitting in bars saying "Fucking Chaplin, he's a scumbag and he should try playing Lear."

Well yeah. But why so many family comedies?

Surely there are loads of other genres which would be more successful. Thriller, Sci-Fi, fantasy.

Take his decision to reprise an older Conan. Genius move.

Monsieur Verdoux is a Thriller. Modern TImes is a SciFi. The Great Dictator is clearly not set in this world, and is therefore a Fantasy.

Job done.

As coincidence would have it, many think that the existence of the former heralds the latter.

He pretty much ruled in 21 Jump Street and I hear he did good work in Rampart.
