Hollywood has its types, that's for sure. In fact, the movies have been a major trendsetter for fashion in America since the rise of cinema in the early 20th century.

Actors need to be more than a pretty face, and types come from all sizes, shapes, colors, and personalities.

And, along the way, casting directors also seem to find up and comers who are always "the next ______" — you can fill in the blank. It's about making a good bet. That's why there are so many prequels, sequels, remakes, and reboots made, also.
