Default Actors who "act the same" (zero to limited range) in all their movies

Are there any actors out there that, when you see their movies, it's as if they always have the same type of character in almost every movie you see them in?

Here's my example:

Jason Statham - Transporter, Crank, Snatch he seems to have the same type of character.

Thoughts?

I think of Dennis Quaid being that way.

Although a good actor I feel that Morgan Freeman always acts the same.

In some ways the new stuff Johnny Depp does. It's as if all he does (minus Public Enemies) is quirky, off-beat roles.

Will Smith is always the same. Sometimes the role suits him, but most of the time it doesn't.

The others, like Statham, at least know their schtick and pick appropriate roles.

I thought his role in Snatch, Revolver, and Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels were different than his roles in Transporter and Crank.

Yes, similar to guys like Paul Vincent, Tony Sirico, and Vincent Pastore who seem to be the go-to-guys when it comes to mob movies

My first thought as well. Stratham is a good choice as well, don't see any Oscars in his future.

actors are pretty much trained monkeys who get paid millions for our amusement.

some of the monkeys know more tricks than others and like to show them off, but some of them can't even be bothered to try new tricks or show us the other tricks they do know since they will get the peanut either way

Seriously? I saw a huge difference in his performances in Glory, Training Day, and Remember the Titans. Think Czar is going to go off on you for saying him.

Denzel Washington and Vince Vaughn. I like both of them buy their range is limited.

My vote goes to Jon Heder of Napoleon Dynamite fame. Now I think that is one of the most hilarious films ever made but he really is not a great actor, but hey he is, or was, striking whiile the iron is hot.
