Johnny Lawrence aka William Zakba was in The Karate Kid and Back to School always portraying the same character – this elitist bully.
He plays characters so despicable only Fox News could whitewash them – lol.
Are some people are always put into stereotypical roles? It might not be a problem because after all, those roles do pay. Actors acting out of character often doesn’t work, but some actors are good at two separate types of cinema – like Robin Williams being good at both drama and comedy. I liked his drama better because his comedy is too weird, but that sentiment isn’t shared by the millions who made him rich!
