Lerkot Posted December 6, 2006 Report Share Posted December 6, 2006 Ok why is he not a good actor... He cant play that many roles. Actually, he has played like five different characters over the last 16 years, with only one or two of them being in succesfull movies. It seems he know his limitations though. When he made Ali, he knew he had to become Ali to make a decent performance. He couldnt turn the character off when he wasnt at the set. Most good actors could have done it just as good but with the ability to become themselves again when the days work was over. Will doesnt often look like a bad actor but that is mainly because the movies he pick is often even worse than himself. If you got a tree with bad apples you pick the least bad. That makes him look decent, but even at the bottom level he tends to play over (or what you call it when it soundss and looks forced). In I, Robot, he was supposed to play a hard angry guy, and that held for like five minutes before he started joking and goofing around again. If Will continues to act like himself as a teenager then sure he can continue to look decent in bad movies. But he does not deserve to be called a top-class actor when I am 100% sure that he would ruin a good movie if he had a large part in it. I mean.. imagine Will in like Pulp Fiction... or Delicatessen.. or in Fitzcarraldo... or in Hero... or in The Green Mile... and so on. It wouldnt work. A good actor can do more than a few roles. A good actor doesnt sound forced in dialogues (just watch Hitch.. geez...)... Few good actors act in many bad movies. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
