Sarah Michelle Gellar will always be Buffy and David Boreanaz will always be Angel
The guy who always plays a guy named Hector..
Last chance to look at me Hector
Fran Drescher as The Nanny
Frankie Muniz as Malcolm Wilkerson
You mean his last name wasn’t “in the middle”?
I never knew the family’s last name until now.
Are you talking about that 25 year old Hawaiian organ donor?
Kelsey Grammer - Frasier Crane
However, I can't hear his voice and not think of Sideshow Bob from The Simpsons.
I love when Bart jumps on Cecil's back and says "Guess who!" ... "Maris?"
Leonard Nimoy as Spock
He wrote a memoir ages ago called "I Am Not Spock" to really show how the role followed him around and damaged the career he had envisioned afterward. Then a few years before he died he wrote another called I Am Spock, which embraced the effect it had on his life and how his participation in a sci-fi TV series affected people.
EDIT: as said below, it was about half as many ages ago, not “a few years” before he died. Time is fleeting.
Wow, I didn't realize it was that long ago. I'll leave my error so this follow-up makes more sense.
Logic is the beginning of wisdom 🖖🏼
🖖 Not the end.
As with almost everything, there's a perfect Simpsons quote.
"I'll get the Leonard Nimoy trilogy. 'I Am Not Spock', 'I Am Spock', and finally 'I Am Also Scotty' :p
For those who haven't seen it, [I am also Scotty](https://64.media.tumblr.com/664a0e1db18de02fe491584638d6569d/tumblr_muo9tmN3Ls1rftsb4o1_500.png).
James Gandolfini / Tony Soprano
Remember the time Tony Soprano told Elmo that he can't sleep without a nightlight?
> Tony Soprano told Elmo that he can't sleep without a nightlight
This is brilliant I wish I knew about it earlier.
I have so much cognitive dissonance watching that, because I fully believe Gandolfini telling Zoe what he’s afraid of, but I’m also afraid for Zoe that she’ll say something wrong and Tony’s going to suddenly turn on her.
Zoe: You never had the makings of a varsity athlete.
Alfonso Ribeiro as Carlton Banks from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air
Bruh you mean Alfonso from “Silver Spoons”!
Yes! I saw him in an ad for something else and he had no moustache and EVERYTHING in the world felt wrong in that moment
He also did the most Ron Swanson ad of all time: A 45minute ad for Lagavulin where he sits on a chair next to a fire and sips whiskey. He doesn't say a word for the entire runtime.
We still never talk sometimes
Best friend I ever had
Matthew Gray Gubler as Spencer Reid
Have you see the little documentary about his house? It's fucking incredible. He keeps teeth in his chimney.
Brent Spiner will always be Data. He did have a great part in Independence Day though.
Or one of the various members of the Soong family: Data's android brother, Data's creator, Data's other android brother, Data's creator's ancestor who was a geneticist, Data's creator's other ancestor who was also a geneticist, Data's human brother that no one knew existed, and whatever role he will play in Picard Season 3, probably related to Data.
Jason Alexander as George Costanza.
It's funny because Jason Alexander comes off as very refined and high minded in interviews, but it just comes off as George Costanza trying to act classy or something. Jason Alexander was probably the most trained actor on the show and he played the part too well.
He's also apparently a Broadway trained singer and dancer. But to play George at times he had to sing off key and move poorly.
Yeah, he had to do another take of the "Believe it or not, George isn't at home..." song because his first one sounded too good.
Where could I beeeeee
Believe it or not, I'm not hoooome.
Close but not quite there - he re-records it but you can more easily tell he's trying to sing off-key https://www.reddit.com/r/videos/comments/7q5f8h/jason_alexander_rerecords_george_costanzas/
Also has some of his actual singing linked, such as this 80s McDonald's ad that comes up in the dictionary when you look up "the 80s" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Eh1kmVwS4Hw
Did you ever see him in his Criminal Minds role? True psychopath and he played it as well as anyone could, but he still came off as funny, because you can’t shake that it looks like it could be some episode of Seinfeld where he gets a part in a play or something.
George: "Jerry, I think they're closing in on me!"
Jerry: "They're closing in?"
George: "They're closin'!"
This is why I can't watch Ozark. I just can't get over the expectation that Jason Bateman is setting up a really dry, deadpan joke delivery...for the entirety of each episode. And when the episode ends, my monkey brain is disappointed that I apparently missed the punchline.
Whenever I watch Seinfeld, I get a flashback of him slapping Julia Roberts in "Pretty Woman".
The sea was angry that day my friends, like an old man trying to send back soup at a deli!
I just threw away a lifetime of guilt-free sex and floor seats for every sporting event in Madison Square Garden. So please, a little respect for I am Costanza - Lord of The Idiots.
You know, if you take everything I've accomplished in my entire life and condense it down into one day, it looks decent.
"People this stupid shouldn’t be allowed to live."
In the same vein Michael Richards as Kramer.
Also Jerry Seinfeld as Jerry Seinfeld
Charlie day as Charlie Kelly. Seeing him in pacific rim is ALWAYS a trip
Every single one of the cast honestly. I was watching AP Bio and honestly I can’t unsee Dennis as Jack Griffin
Jack is basically just a more tame and competent version of Dennis. He's still doing a bunch of zany schemes and thinks he's better than everybody lol
In pacific rim he feels like Charlie with super smarts tbh
He plays variations of the same character in everything.
IASIP - dumb Charlie
Horrible Bosses - average intelligence Charlie
Pacific Rim - smart Charlie
>Horrible Bosses - average intelligence Charlie
"We are *men*, looking for a man!"
Callista Flockheart got out of the show "Ally McBeal" because everyone called her... Ally McBeal!
So yeah, I'd go with her.
Aaron Paul as Jesse Pinkman
will always hear him as todd from bojack
Todd is basically cartoon Jesse, to be fair.
Todd is kinda just good universe Jesse though isn’t he
Jack Gleeson as Joffrey Baratheon
For a second I thought, the guy from the Honeymooners? Whose been dead for like 30 years?
Pow, Right in the kisser!
One of these days Alice
One of the many reasons he stepped away from acting
Every Chuck Palahniuk book I will ever ready will forever be narrated by Edward Norton in my head.
I am Jack's total lack of surprise.
Bro that plays Jon Snow may as well legally change his name to Jon Snow because we’re never going to stop calling him Jon Snow.
I think a lot of the Game of Thrones cast might be in this boat aside from the older actors who were already established before it came along. Basically all of the Stark children, Theon, Samwell, etc. They've almost all had fairly large roles on other shows and movies, but I still can't help but to feel like I'm still watching their GoT characters. Emilia Clarke has done a pretty good job distancing herself from Daeny though.
I think her platinum blonde wig def helped her keep that role separate since she doesn’t actually look like that
Apparently most people don't even recognize her when she's just out day to day. Even when out with her former co-stars.
Changing your hair really throws people off. If my husband stopped shaving his head and shaved his beard instead I probably wouldn't recognize him
Hey now, theon has a name, it is lily Allen's little brother, please get it right.
It really hurt the immersion watching him get flayed and tortured when all I could think of was that song about him jerking off and smoking weed all day
Doesn't really help that he keeps the exact same hairstyle and beard as he did in the show but I guess that's raking in the views. I also don't really understand how so many watch movies just because said actor is in it as that would kinda ruin the immersive by just going to watch an actor.
>Doesn't really help that he keeps the exact same beard and hairstyle as he did in the show
and married ygrette.
But he does that thing with his tongue.
He knows one thing.
That's honestly so cute though. It makes their chemistry on the show much more real
And he’s now in the MCU portraying a character who’s a swordsman, AGAIN
Not that I’m complaining, love the guy!
Tbf he apparently trained his ass off to get good with a sword so you can't really blame him for not wanting those skills to go to waste
Yeah, he was 23 when they cast him and was fully engaged in the production for 10 years, GoT was essentially his entire young-adult life. The mental health/alcohol issues once the show ended are totally understandable. Glad he’s doing better.
Apparently the Thrones directors said he was one of the most natural actor swordsmen they’d ever seen, so I guess it makes sense
In a behind the scenes thing I saw they said he put in the most practice of the entire cast
I specifically remember during the behind the scenes for battle of the wall, the director thought one of the fight clips had been slowed down (or something to that effect). They realized after it hadn’t been, it was just Kit Harrington’s fluid sword fighting technique. Kit seemed like he was purpose built for the role of Jon Snow.
The dude who played Napoleon Dynamite will always ONLY be Napoleon Dynamite.
Napoleon, don't be jealous that I've been chatting online with babes all day.
After one week with me in my dojo, you'll be prepared to defend yourself with the STRENGTH of a grizzly, the reflexes of a PUMA, and the wisdom of a man.
Now, for only $300, you can sign up right now.. for my eight-week program.
How much you wanna bet I could throw a football over them mountains?
Nah man he was fucking golden in blades of glory too
"Night time is a dark time for everybody IDIOT!"
"I see you got fat!"
"I see you still look like a 15 year old girl but not hot"
Seriously that movie was comedy gold.
Jimmy McElroy, skating’s golden boy for me.
The Rock with his Role as The Rock.
Don't forget his wise-cracking sidekick Kevin Hart, played by Kevin Hart.
*"I'm loud, small and annoying!"* - Kevin Hart in all his movies.
I’m big muscles, bald and do an eye thing, who am I?
Anytime I see him in a movie I always think "how does this character have time to get that ripped?"
Sorry, Rainn Wilson.
Just a quick edit, I've seen his films etc and I think he is a really good diverse actor. Super is one of my favourite films.
Edit again, OMG I forgot about Backstrom ❤️
Very random, but I’ve always thought Rainn could do a killer Doctor Octopus if put in the right Spider-Man property. Maybe not live action, but I think he’d do phenomenal as a voice actor in one of the animated versions. He has a flair for cartoonish villainy that I’d like to see explored in other roles.
100% down for doc dwight
JD and Turk from scrubs will forever be just those wacky doctors
Raul Julia in The 1991 movie adaptation of The Addams Family.
Yes he was a good Gomez. Probably my favorite Gomez Addams
Nah, he's M. Bison on a tuesday.
David Duchovny - Mulder
I thought he was a hand model.
David Schwimmer. He's always just Ross. Basically ruined band of brothers for me lmao. I'm like "why is Ross an officer"
He actually played that role really well, but I agree it's hard to not see him as Ross.
Band of Brothers is an all time banger though.
Jason Biggs as the pie fucker.
Elijah Wood will always be Frodo to me
*Sin City* will fix that real quick.
I was thinking the exact same thing. Him vs Marv is so good.
"He never screams. Not even when the mutt's had its fill. Kevin's guts are lying all over the place and somehow the bastard is still alive still staring at me. Not even when I grab the saw and finish the job, he never screams"
Sin city has made me irrationally afraid of Elijah Wood
For me it was Eternal Sunshine. He really nailed the creepy stalker vibe. It's the eyes, they bulge.
"When we were doing her procedure, I stole some of her panties."
"What?! Patrick what the hell, man?"
I loved Mark Ruffalo in that movie.
Likewise with Viggo Mortensen as Aragorn
Nikolai in Eastern Promises is hard to overwrite. Especially *that* scene.
A few flopping dicks will make you forget about Aragorn right boys
Are you saying meat’s back on the menu?
Even if you’ve seen History of Violence or Eastern Promises?
Matt Smith is currently freaking me out on House of the Dragon. I'm uncomfortable watching Doctor Who use the C-word
I saw the previews and I was like: Why is Prince Phillip eyeballing everyone under an angry brow?
Looks like I'm old:
Michael J Fox - Marty McFly
Alex P. Keaton 4ever
Rowan Atkinson as Mr. Bean
Undoubtedly yes, but Blackadder is one of the finest TV shows ever made. The acting and jokes are on point.
Blackadder is why I no longer associate Rowan Atkinson with Mr Bean. He's shown great delivery in his other characters too.
You should check out Rowan's stand-up videos on YouTube. They are amazing. Not a huge surprise that someone with such great comedic timing is a phenomenal stand-up comedian. But even still, they are a joy to watch.
For example: [his welcome to Hell sketch](https://youtu.be/Ut116mBuPpg).
Hear me out for I have a cunning plan
“Your brain is so minute Baldrick, that if a hungry cannibal cracked your head open, there wouldn’t be enough to cover a small water biscuit.”
"To you, Baldrick, the Renaissance was just something that happened to other people, wasn't it?"
“Baldrick, does it have to be this way? Our valued friendship ending with me cutting you up into strips and telling the prince that you walked over a very sharp cattle grid in an extremely heavy hat?”
"I'm a busy man and I can't be bothered to punch you at the moment. Here is my fist, kindly run towards it as fast as you can."
“There hasn’t been a war run this badly since Olaf the hairy, King of all the Vikings, ordered 80,000 battle helmets with the horns on the inside”
For me it is Rowan Atkinson as Blackadder
Emma Watson as Hermione
I feel like that about the main three. It’s hard to see them as anyone but hermione, Ron and Harry
Daniel Radcliffe has done so many interesting movies since then that I don't really just see him as Harry Potter now. I do love that he just gets to do what he wants now due to all the money from Harry Potter though.
Radcliffe made the excellent career decision to get just fucking weird with it.
He made all the money he'd ever need with the HP roles as a kid, now he's free to wear bear slippers with guns grafted to his hands or fart his way across an ocean without concern of commercial success.
Radcliffe realized at some point that he had "fuck you money" by the time he could drive, and decided he was going to do whatever the hell movies he wanted. I've never supported a decision more.
Didn't he also play on Broadway for a while where he was naked on stage?
Him doing roles without the glasses definitely helps. Daniel Radcliffe is a very good actor and I’m happy he gets to explore other roles
And facial hair, but his choice of roles is the big one.
I LOVE the roles he's chosen to do after Harry Potter, he's got great range and comedic timing
This. He's also just an interesting person to listen to. I think the Harry Potter image ended for me when he rapped to Blackalicious on The Tonight Show. Not because he was good at it (which he was), but because he knew who the hell Blackalicious was in the first place.
Not even a movie, but Miracle Workers has definitely overridden any lingering association with HP at this point
If the first two seasons don't do it, then "she'll be coming round the mountain" sure will.
I don't think anyone hit it as hard as Kevin Rich.
Kevin McAlister, and yeah, he’ll never be anyone else lol
Alan Alda as Hawkeye Pierce.
Chris Hemsworth as Thor.
And Tom Hiddleston as Loki.
Most Marvel actors are going to have that problem I think
Buffy as Buffy
Sheldon Cooper as Sheldon Cooper
What do you mean he has a _real_ name?
He was a good human version of a muppet in The Muppets.
Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia), and Christopher Reeve (Superman).
Mark Hamill when he's on screen. But he definitely also sticks really strong as the Joker when voice acting.
And Fire Lord Ozai!
You’re wearing no pants avatar!
Christopher Reeves' problem was LOOKING like Superman.
While [simultaneously looking like Clark Kent](https://youtu.be/tNUu6Lf9mVU?t=90).
And sounding like both of them!
Serious talk, Christopher Reeve was exceedingly gifted. When he went to Julliard, he was one of two students in their advanced program. The other was his roommate Robin Williams.
Sean William Scott- Stifler
Really hard role to recover from. He was too good at it
John Krasinski as Jim Halpert
Watching him play Jack Ryan was really difficult to take seriously
I was waiting for him to look at the camera
Edit: thanks for the 1000 upvote thank you all
“I'm an analyst. I don't interrogate people. I write reports!” *looks at camera*
Robert Englund as Freddy Krueger.
Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker.
Stifler’s Mom - don’t even know her name, just what ever she appears in, it’s like “STIFLER’S MOM!”
Jennifer Coolidge, love her.
To me, she’s Paulette in Legally Blonde.
I love her. She had an interview after the movies released and said that she became (her words) a big slut because everyone wanted to sleep with Stiflers Mom.
Cary Elwes - Westley/The Dread Pirate Roberts.
He’s always Pierre Despereaux (from Psych) for me!
You know that's right.
It was a trip to realize the Dread Pirate Roberts had to saw off his own foot after being captured in a torture chamber by a maniac.
Robin hood, my friend
Because unlike some other Robin Hoods, he could speak with a British accent.
Did he just say “Abe Lincoln”?
Patrick Stewart as Picard. I know he’s done others, but it’s just ingrained at this point.
Honestly, he was a great Professor Xavier. I definitely let go of the Star Trek reference as he acclimated to that role.
Basically all the Star Trek actors are burned into me like that. John de Lancie? Q. Tim Russ? Tuvok. Brent Spiner? Data. Not many of them have been in much other stuff, but when they show up you bet your arse I'll say that that dragon is Captain Janeway.
But LeVar Burton -- even when watching star trek, all I could think is "why is Reading Rainbow man in space with a banana clip on his face?"
