Anyone can say they don’t like Jim Carrey movies, or that they love Steven Segal movies (really, though?) because those two have been typecast in so many similar roles that they became a one-man genre, basically. It’s like eating your favorite pizza every single day for the rest of your life – starts amazing, but gets boring after a while. So, just like with pizza, sometimes actors like to switch things around, giving us completely unexpected performances. Whether or not we like those movies is irrelevant, really, but we do get to see a whole new side to our beloved actors. For better or for worse, these 8 movies changed the way we perceive some of the biggest Hollywood idols.
Nicolas Cage – The Wicker Man
Nowadays Nic Cage is considered by many to be a real acting prodigy, a one-of-a-kind genius, while the other 90% of the viewers see him as a total nut. And nobody ever said a bad thing about Cage until his agent started giving him all sorts of ridiculous roles. He’d even won an Oscar and was considered to be rather good, but… in 2006 “The Wicker Man” the memetastic “bees” happened. This was the end of Nicolas Cage as a great actor, and the beginning of his bizarre performances. At least in my opinion.
