Audiences remain familiar with Charlize Theron‘s work through her consistently dramatic choices. But the Oscar winner rarely dabbles into the comedy genre. Theron may have given some wry comedic turns in “Young Adult” and “Tully,” which garnered her wide acclaim, but they aren’t comedies in the same vein of her upcoming film. “Long Shot,” co-starring the ever tied-to comedy Seth Rogen, proves to be a rare exception for the actress. One, according to early reviews, garners Theron ever encouraging praise.
Theron is not the only screen star who consistently, it seems, chooses drama over comedy. Whether it’s by choice or typecasting, these ten actors and actress haven’t let their humorous-freak-flags fly quite as often. Here’s hoping that changes with this list of ten actors and actresses who consistently take on dramatic roles but should definitely give their loyal fans a chance to see them take stab at comedy.
