Robin Williams should be typecast.
Okay, I just finished the movie Death to Smoochy. It was good. I liked it a lot. It only had one problem: Robin Williams
was the bad guy.
I like Robin Williams. I grew up watching him in movie after movie, he was always the good guy. America loves him. So where
do these producers get off taking somebody everybody loves, and casting him as the evil villain? It can't be done.
It can't be done, mostly, because in order to make a bad guy into a really really good bad guy, everybody has to hate him.
Take Snape, for instance, in the Harry Potter movies. He always plays a bad guy, or at least a disagreeable good guy. Sorry
to whoever that actor is (I'm too lazy to go look it up) people don't like you. When you see that guy's face in a movie, you
immediately don't like him, because he's been a disagreeable bastard in past movies.
Back to Robin Williams. I don't hate him. Now, I'm trying to decide if I like the character because it's Robin Williams
or if I don't, because he's the bad guy. It's difficult, I tell you.
Conclusion: Robin Williams should be typecast.
Other conclusion: One hour Photo should be destroyed, the movie sucks except for the bleeding eyes scene, which still gives
me nightmares two years later.
