Newsflash: Actors often aren't like the characters they play. Yes, we know! We were shocked too! Did you know that they actually train to pretend to be different people? Unbelievable!
The thing is, sometimes we get so used to see an actor in a role, it's hard to imagine them doing anything else. That's how typecasting happens. But these actors didn't let themselves be pigeonholed. They didn't just play a different part -- they went and did the exact opposite of the roles they're known for.
