    He can be funny, but like most ‘IT’ stars, they get a ton of offers and we get saturated with their films and such then they die off. See many Jim Carrey movies lately? Maybe one a year now? See many Dane Cook movies lately. And I can go on about dramtic actors and such.

    C-Dub, I agree with you, he was good in Get him To The Greek and Sarah Marshall but what else can he do? Arthur is a good vehicule for him but you can’t remake a classic like that. Type casting is inevitable for those types of actors.
