The answer is simple: Money, dear boy. Sometimes, undeniably famous, classical actors and actresses take roles in movies that are very against their type. Obviously, movies are big business, and the right name at the top of the poster can be the difference between a hit and a flop. And it’s hard to argue with the fact that, when offered buckets and buckets of cash for three weeks of shooting, anyone would be a fool not to take it. After all, acting is a volatile profession, as many starving artists can attest, and financial security for you and your family is nothing to turn from: It’s not so much selling out, as selling well. Still, if you do too many of these, you run the risk of having a rather strange IMDb record and irrevocably ruining your reputation as a creative thespian: so much potential and talent wasted. To be clear, however, there is no shame at all for doing a movie for the money, and if the movie happens to be a great one, artistically or popularly, all the better.
