Robert Englund's Small Lips
Robert Englund made his bones as the wisecracking villain Freddy Kreuger from the Nightmare on Elm Street series. He then became typecast and starred in an additional 7 movies in the series.
I saw a late 80s interview with Mr Englund in which he expressed a desire to play in a buddy role, specifically referencing Robert DeNiro and Charles Grodin in the hilarious Midnight Run. I felt so bad for the guy. As an actor he must thirst for something new and challenging and instead he gets another four hours in the makeup chair again. On the bright side, he once played Willie the Friendly Alien in the 80s scifi miniseries "V".
Good luck Robert and I'm pulling for you in Midnight Run 2!
