* {{Jerkass}}: A bit more of a complicated example. He's not necessarily an unpleasant person off-character, but his commitment to [[MethodActing staying in character]] often makes him difficult to work with.

* MeanCharacterNiceActor: A bit more of a complicated example. His commitment to [[MethodActing staying in character]] often makes him difficult to work with especially because he tends to gravitate to heavy roles with characters that are lashing out at the world and this often results in his lashing out at his coworkers during production. However, out-of-character, he is generally very soft-spoken and quite self-deprecating about his commitment to his craft.
