Yesterday was NBC’s 2nd Annual Red Nose Day, a charity telethon for various organizations around the world. Throughout the night, famous actors and celebrities participated in both live and pre-taped sketches to keep viewers entertained while other celebrities answer phones. Not a bad idea and noble cause, but not exactly an event I’m clearing my schedule to see. Thankful, it’s 2016, and we live in the age of the Internet where you can just see everything worth watching the following day.
Enter a music video starring Steve Buscemi, Danny Trejo and Iwan Rheon (aka the guy who portrays Ramsay Snow) singing about how much they hate everyone assuming that they’re bad guys because of the characters they portray. If anything, this should raise awareness for the emotional damage that typecasting can have on an actor. Always playing the bad guy makes them become introverted and lonely. Always playing the hot chick will make them conceited and ruin all of their relationships. Always playing the drug addict will make them addicted to drugs (probably). So don’t typecast. Just cast them in the same role over and over and call it something different.
