Actors get stale after a while because they start to parody themselves. This is a truism of Hollywood. Notable examples of tics / clichés that actors have been forced to overcome by directors include Bruce Willis being told not to act so Bruce Willisy in Twelve Monkeys, and George Clooney being asked not to drop his head and look up at people from under his eyebrows.
Notable plasticbag.org clichés:
- Starting every post with the word “So”.
- Ending every post with an ellipsis (three dots).
- Overusing <blockquote> and <ul> (unordered lists).
