Being yourself is not acting.

Always playing the same character is barely acting.

I think the Stan Show is fantastic, but it is still the Stan show.
Kinda describes John Wayne.
And Jim Carrey, to be honest.

If the same guy can play both Ace Ventura and Truman Burbank, he's not a one-note actor.

Truman Burbank and Ace Ventura share oddly similar facial mimics and vocal inflections. I guess they both imitate Andy Kauffman.

Jim Carrey totally has at least two notes.

Jim Carrey, and guys like Tom Hanks, used their comedy chops to get their foot in the door. Carrey is no Hanks, but he has certainly stretched himself over the past fifteen years.

One of my favorite movies, but he plays a calm, boring guy - it's why he gets dumped.

I think ABC should look at this thread and realize they should never let the show go on hiatus. The conversations get weird.

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

I'm still surprised a series I thought would be absolute cack keeps managing to engage and intrigue me. Though the Stan Lee appearance just felt too intrusive.

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

Well... I had to dig up my old Deathlok-comic from the very earliest of the 90's and on the first page they namedrop both Roxxon and Cybertek, so apparently the hints for who Mike would become was apparently pretty obvious...
