Hardcore Henry : How does Sharlto get speaking parts, let alone starring roles?

How does Sharlto get speaking parts, let alone starring roles?

What does he do to keep getting work? He's a straight to Dvd level actor and yet here he is.

Re: How does Sharlto get speaking parts, let alone starring roles?

I remember when Sharlto was living in Austin Texas back in late 2007/early 2008..I'd seen him about 3 times on sixth street but had no idea he'd gone on to star in district 9 and so forth. He was by himself and seemed really shy.



Re: How does Sharlto get speaking parts, let alone starring roles?

He was great in the a-team

Re: How does Sharlto get speaking parts, let alone starring roles?

I personally like him.

Re: How does Sharlto get speaking parts, let alone starring roles?

He's funny and energetic!

Re: How does Sharlto get speaking parts, let alone starring roles?

I like him as well.


Re: How does Sharlto get speaking parts, let alone starring roles?

Energetic is not the word I would used. Watching Malevent I couldnt tell if he was the King or a servant. The guy seems like a type of guy you would want to have a beer with but he has zero presence or charisma in his roles. He's a background actor or.

Re: How does Sharlto get speaking parts, let alone starring roles?

I like him a lot too.

Re: How does Sharlto get speaking parts, let alone starring roles?

He is the man.

He was great in DIstrict 9, Elysium and Chappie.

Re: How does Sharlto get speaking parts, let alone starring roles?

Dude. He is cool.
Good at acting crazy or acting in crazy curcensizes.

Re: How does Sharlto get speaking parts, let alone starring roles?

Elysium

check them out

Re: How does Sharlto get speaking parts, let alone starring roles?

He's been great in everything I've seen him in. He's especially great in Hardcore Henry!

Pervert!

Re: How does Sharlto get speaking parts, let alone starring roles?

im so glad every single other poster disagreed with you so far. i think he is charming and really puts 100% of himself into characters and his crushes his roles. even spike lee's *beep* old boy remake, him as the over-the-top villain was actually really true to the source manga and totally the highlight of an otherwise mediocre viewing.

Re: How does Sharlto get speaking parts, let alone starring roles?

He was great in District Nine, and I think he was great here.

Re: How does Sharlto get speaking parts, let alone starring roles?

I think he's very talented and is one of my favorite actors.



Watch out for cheetahs! This is cheetah turf!

Re: How does Sharlto get speaking parts, let alone starring roles?

You're way off regarding Sharlto. He's an A+ actor and seemingly under utilized in Hollywood. I've enjoyed him in every role he's taken and if he's simply being choosy about which roles he takes then he's not just a great actor he also especially smart. Or has a very good agent.

Re: How does Sharlto get speaking parts, let alone starring roles?

Dude Sharlto is the man. I have enjoyed every performance from him thus far. Hollywood is sleeping on him, he needs to blow up already.

Re: How does Sharlto get speaking parts, let alone starring roles?

Amen.

Re: How does Sharlto get speaking parts, let alone starring roles?

He's actually become a strong reason for me to go and see a movie I might have previously passed on.

Re: How does Sharlto get speaking parts, let alone starring roles?

QuentinHackatino I want to say for all the people here disagreeing with you, I was about to make the same board, with a title like "Sharlto Copley=mediocre movie?" or something like that. The movies I remember him by have decent to good set-ups, and go straight to the sheizzer later on. Chappie and District 9 are the ones that come to mind inmediately, because theyre the ones when we see this high school level acting and they have interesting takes that end up crushed by going in completely stupid directions.

However in other movies, when hes not in the lead, he can make some not-terrible acting, like Elysium (not a good movie, but hes not THIS bad in it) and A-Team was ok too, I guess.

Re: How does Sharlto get speaking parts, let alone starring roles?

He is by far the best thing in this movie, hes the only one I cared about

~Hasta la vista..Baby

Re: How does Sharlto get speaking parts, let alone starring roles?

He's funny as hell and doesnt need to *beep* on someone else to be funny, which is rare for someone to do when they make jokes.

Re: How does Sharlto get speaking parts, let alone starring roles?

Really?
He's been everything from really good to very great in everything I've seen so far (and I've seen all of his movies). One of my personal favorite actors.
But everyone has different taste and so on…

Re: How does Sharlto get speaking parts, let alone starring roles?

One of my fav underrated actors

Re: How does Sharlto get speaking parts, let alone starring roles?

He was absolutely the best part of this movie. *beep* your profile name too.

Re: How does Sharlto get speaking parts, let alone starring roles?

He is a brilliant actor. Easily the best active today.

Re: How does Sharlto get speaking parts, let alone starring roles?

Honestly, looking at your ratings, one might think that your opinion is solely based on the need to be "edgy".
I mean, really? Revenant 1 Star?

…but they hung him anyway.
