    Default Actors: Then and Now

    I was watching Doom Patrol the TV series this week and... man is Brendan Fraser different.





    Which actors have you see who are different than they used to be?

    All of them.

    Brendan Fraser wasted his talents on a lot of bad movies. There was only one film in which I saw him play a serious, dramatic role. I forget the name of the film, but he played an undercover intelligence agent assigned to Vietnam. I have to look it up later. He did quite well in the supporting role.

    What bad movies? I liked a lot of his stuff.


    Anyway who else specifically could you compare then and now and not recognize? Some look the same no matter what. For example here's a picture of Nicholas Cage fromt he 1800s

    You never saw Monkeybone? What a piece of crap that was!

    The movie I was thinking of before was The Quiet American. Pretty good.

    Monkeybone was great! Whoopie Goldberg as Death. Steven King Cujo's prisoner...

    Whoopie's aged well... as has Matt Daimon. Now who do you know who changed a LOT

    Monkeybone was an uneven regurgitation of old, overused fantasy-comedy cliches.

    Actors who have changed a lot.


    It's always funny to me how these so-called, then-and-now comparison pictures of famous actors are presented on the internet. It's as if such actors are always set up to fail in the now department no matter what they do. I mean, it's one thing for a particular actor to look less attractive than his/her former self because they, say, did drugs, gained weight or clearly aged, blah blah. It's another thing for that same actor to look less attractive than his/her former self because they were opportunistically photographed under non-clouded, mid-day sunlight that is apt to expose less desirable features such as wrinkles, bald patches and nostril hair. Talk about an uneven playing field, and - as if to add insult to injury, the former self to which he/she is compared would be enhanced by more flattering lighting, make-up and perhaps a dash of airbrushing too.

    Still, if I must...



    In all honestly, I don't believe in all this guff. Sure, Jet Li has gotten older, but the second picture is clearly the result of him being photographed under less flattering light. But I posted this picture anyway because it was the only one that sprung to mind and was relatively safe to access -'cause I really don't like the idea of scouring the internet for pictures of this kind as they tend be posted on the most spammiest of websites. =P
