Why is this called I am not Leonard Nimoy if Leonard Nimoy isn't even in the examples?

Page example sections are never complete. Ergo, the lack of an example doesn't mean anything.

Would the Olsen twins qualify? In just about every work (aside from Full House), they pretty much always played a pair of twins named "Ashley and Mary-Kate" and had similar personalities.

They would indeed. Their double act was always the same. Mary Kate was the edgy rebellious tomboy and Ashley the level-headed, somewhat neurotic girly girl.

I haven't pulled it yet, but do people think Brad Pitt should be here?

It's an interesting case, there are definitely a lot of movies where Brad Pitt played Brad Pitt (Troy and most of the early rom coms. Mr and Mrs Smith etc..)

But he's definitely broke out and there are now also a lot of movies where people remember the character. It's Tyler Durden and not Brad Pitt and so on...

So what's the consensus?

I'm seeing a lot of examples that belong in Typecasting and I Am Not Spock. Could someone with a bit more time on their hands maybe move those there?

George Lindsey. Can you think of a role he played that wasn't Goober (Beasley) Pyle?

It's not just about being typecast, it's do you think 'oh look what George Lindsey's doing now?' instead of whoever his character is supposed to be?

Most of these examples are relatively old, and until recently women didn't really get parts that landed them in the thick of Memetic Mutation- at least unless it was about their general sexiness, like Marilyn Monroe. Eh, guess I'll add her to the list.

Type the word in the image. This goes away if you get known.

How well does it match the trope?
