    Is it type casting or a lack of true acting ability that forces them to merely play themselves over and over? It worked so well for our older action guys who couldn’t act their way out of a paper bag that it appears our newer ”stars” followed the lead. I site Stallone, Steven Segal, Jean Claude Van Dam, Chuck Norris. Really, could any of them act? No, but they were all in demand and very well paid.
