And to be clear when I say TC is not a professional actor…he’s a “Movie Star”
the difference between a “Movie Star” and an “Actor” is that:
Actors play different characters in different movies
“Movie Stars” play a version of themselves (names changed) in every movie. I.e. movie stars don’t “play characters” they are the character.
So for example, in Batman and Robin (and the one before that) George Clooney does not play batman, he plays George Clooney in a rubber suit with bat nipples and goes around saying “I’m Batman”
Similarly, Jack Nicholson was fantastic as the first Joker, incredible even. But it was really still Jack Nicholson in a clown suit, and everyone knew it. Whereas, Heath Ledger was the Joker. When you look at HL’s Joker, you see “The Joker” not HL when you look at JN’s the Joker, you see “Jack Nicholson as The Joker”
That’s the difference between an actor and a movie star…
And is this ever off topic…fortunately, being insane, I can do that.
