17 Actors Who Avoided Typecasting
There are some actors who seem to play exactly the same character in every film they’ve ever been. Either through typecasting or choice, they always fall into the same type of film, and while they may once or twice try breaking the mold, the vast majority of them just do the same thing over and over. When was the last time Michelle Rodriguez wasn’t the tough-talking Latina, who spent most of her time in a white tank-top, and was killed before the end of the series/movie? However, these 17 actors have all leveraged their incredible acting skills to avoid the death-trap of typecasting, and have been in some of the most varied films on the planet. Also, notice how many of them pop-up in more than one trailer on this list, there’s definitely a lot of crossover in this crowd.
10 Worst Cars for the Environment
As the car companies scramble to evolve fuel efficient technology for the betterment of the consumer and the environment, they continue to manufacture quite a few gas guzzlers that seem to counteract the strides they've made. The US Department of Energy's FuelEconomy.gov and ConsumerReports.org list the industry's worst offenders, and it shouldn't come as a surprise that the large-engine trucks, SUVs and luxury cars appear the most frequently. Several of the following 2011 model vehicles are widely popular, tempting drivers with their versatility, spaciousness and performance, but are they worth the ultimate cost?
10 Big Movie Roles That Were Horribly Miscast
A movie can go wrong at just about any point in production, but there’s no error quite as noticeable as bad casting. The dialogue, costumes, and atmosphere can totally line up, but if you’ve got the wrong person in a key role, the magic just isn’t there. Sometimes it’s just a little off — George Clooney was a pretty awkward Batman, but then, Batman & Robin had much bigger problems — but other times it’s enough to totally derail every scene in which the miscast actor appears, or even sink the entire movie. These are the roles that made the biggest mistakes, lost the biggest gambles, and proved just how awful things can get.

21 Ads That Almost Make You Miss the '80s
Grating jingles, DayGlo wardrobes, shrill child actors, cheesy dance montages. If you wanted annoying, you could find it in the TV-commercial breaks of the 1980s. But today, 21 years removed from that decade of regrettable advertising, a few spots from the era do manage to spark a glimmer of misty-eyed nostalgia. AdFreak sifted through the morass and picked 21 such relative bright spots—presented here for your enjoyment. No, these aren't the best ads of the '80s, so don't expect Apple's "1984" or Wendy's "Where's the beef?" We also bypassed enduring earworms like "My Buddy." These are just ads that, for better or worse, made us smile in looking back at them—a glimpse of a simpler time when, occasionally, it wasn't so bad when Knight Rider went to commercial.
10 Most-Maligned American Presidents
Commander-in-chief is a brutal gig. You've probably heard this cliche in some variation, but it rings true: when things are going wrong, presidents get too much of the blame, and when thing are going right, they get too much credit. Each president listed below would certainly subscribe to that theory, though some of them were more deservedly maligned for their actions in office than others. In American politics, perception is everything. It's why politicians adept at communication and public relations are the most successful. It's why presidents obsess over their legacies, hoping that history will treat them favorably -- or at least better than the public treated them during their terms in office.
