But the film is also a powerful tribute to the many women who went on the record, speaking to Kantor and Twohey and going public about their own experiences with Weinstein. Many of the survivors portrayed on screen were deeply involved in She Said's production, and some of them even appear on screen playing themselves.
Several notable Hollywood names appear in She Said as well. In 2017, actress Ashley Judd was one of the first celebrities to go on the record and speak to Kantor and Twohey about her own experiences with Weinstein. Here, she appears on screen in She Said, playing herself in some of the film's most powerful scenes.
"It was her stage," Schrader tells EW of filming with Judd, calling the actress' performance "wonderful." "I told her, 'I'll tell you how I want to film it, but of course it's up to you to decide how you will portray yourself.' It almost feels like when you're in the theater, and you pull down the fourth wall: You have actors playing real people, and then, all of a sudden, you have the real Ashley Judd telling her own story."
In This Is The End, Seth Rogen and Jay Baruchel play best friends and fictionalized versions of themselves. While attending a huge party absolutely bursting with fun celebrity cameos, the biblical apocalypse begins, leaving survivors to bunker down and hope for rescue.
Jay Carter Taylor (she/her) loves movies almost as much as she loves hating movies. She's haunted film festivals including SXSW, Berlin, Tribeca, TIFF, Fantasia, Venice, and Sundance. She's never missed a single MCU movie premiere or series even though Pixar and Wes Anderson are more her style. Jay supports female directors and JEDI allyship. She has 1 spouse, 3 sisters, 4 dogs, 9 niblings, and more statement jewelry than sense. She has recently started playing Fortnite with her 8 year old nephew.
And films do it too, with Chuck Norris playing a blink-and-you'll-miss-it part in "Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story" or Topher Grace really hamming it up in "Oceans' 11" and "Oceans' 12."
The film features several other guest stars playing themselves including "Titanic" actor Billy Zane, Winona Ryder, Tyson Beckford, Fabio and more.
Every nerd dream come true has made a cameo on the show playing hilariously strange characters to evil versions of themselves. "Star Trek: The Next Generation" star Will Wheaton and Leonard Nimoy (in voice form) are two actors who have really made an impression.
We've seen cases where a very famous actor plays an impossibly small part in a movie, either as themselves or as a character. We've seen cases when a fictional character is listed in the credits as Himself/Herself. We've seen an actor playing a character with the same name as themselves. We've seen a real celebrity appear as themselves on a show for a quick laugh or maybe they take over the entire episode. And we've seen a beloved actor parody themselves by playing the flanderized version of themselves or their most well-known character for laughs.
This trope is when a real-life celebrity or famous figure is playing a fictionalized version of themselves, as a main character or recurring character. This is mostly a television trope, but there are film examples. For shows that take place in an alternate Hollywood, such as Curb Your Enthusiasm, Entourage and The Larry Sanders Show, this is the norm. It would be hard to believe it's Hollywood if you'd never heard of any of the "stars", would it?
This real celebrity is playing themselves, but they are inserted into fictional circumstances, play alongside clearly fictitious characters and sometimes have fictional backstories in relation to those fictional characters. This differs from an Autobiographical Role, where the celebrity is playing themselves in the actual story of their life.
Occasionally, there will be an example of this with a deceased star/famous figure. This will often be done using archive footage, but the trope still applies because they are still playing themselves in fictional circumstances (Forrest Gump didn't actually meet John F. Kennedy or Lyndon Johnson, folks).
The younger actresses playing Wendy do a fine job showing her as a curious young girl and an angsty teen missing her mother, but when the film pivots to De Paolis as the grown up Wendy, the one thing holding the film somewhat together completely falls apart. She is stiff and has no chemistry with any of her co-stars, and the sudden appearance of an Italian accent is jarring. The relationship between Wendy and her husband Adam is poorly defined. Because they have no chemistry together as a couple, it makes no sense why he would stay with her given how rude she is to him all the time, despite them having a child together.
Albert Nobbs wasn't the only woman in Dublin donning men's clothing out of a need for survival in the film of the same name. In the passion project from producer Glenn Close, Nobbs comes across Hubert Page (Janet McTeer), who serves as a mentor and guide to Nobbs. Page is also a woman disguised as a man with the intention of protecting herself, but Nobbs and Page have different motivations for donning their respective personas. Whereas Nobbs takes on a male character so as to blend into the crowd and protect themselves from unwanted attention, Page uses the male persona as a vehicle for self-assertion in a time and place where women are offered severely less appealing opportunities than that of men. McTeer earned an Oscar nomination for the role.
Jared Leto's Oscar win for Rayon in Dallas Buyers Club sparked outrage within the trans community. Leto has spent much of his career joking about crossdressing and referred to Rayon as a "beautiful creature" in his Golden Globes acceptance speech. The mildest critics applauded Leto's performance while pointing out where it wasn't believable, such as when she is misgendered and abstains from correcting the person. Some of the harshest critics say that Hollywood eschewed the opportunity to represent or even respect a marginalized minority for the sake of patting themselves on the back. Rayon personifies every ugly stereotype the media has perpetuated about trans women since it began letting them put a toe in the spotlight, considering Leto's character is a depressed, clothes-obsessed, hypersexual, drug-addicted sex worker.
The final "Austin Powers" movie is 2005's "Goldmember" which, as usual, parodies multiple "James Bond" movies. In an extra-meta moment, "Goldmember" opens with the filming of a movie about Powers' antics, called "Austinpussy" (a play on Bond film "Octopussy").
Most of us fell in love with baseball as a child. That's when our imaginations were the most fertile, when we could easily picture ourselves standing on the mound in the bottom of the ninth or up at the plate with the bases loaded and the World Series on our shoulders. So, it shouldn't be a surprise that some of the greatest baseball movies are those featuring kids. Whether they're out on the sandlot getting their knees dirty or -- through some magical wish fulfillment -- are actually in uniform and out on a Major League diamond long before they can even drive a car, these films speak to both the young and the young-at-heart.
Sheldon: I liked but didn't love it. I don't think it's in the pantheon of great baseball movies. What I liked was the nostalgia and sentiment. I can relate to playing games with neighborhood kids and friends, losing baseballs in yards and on rooftops etc. and working out the conflicts.
But what happens when an actor isn't playing a role? What if they were to just... show up as themselves? Or, at least, a version of themselves. Maybe one that's downplayed, maybe one that's exaggerated, but either way rooted in their actual celebrity persona.
The entire cast of This Is the End play comedic versions of themselves as they attend a house party at James Franco's house. You'll spot familiar faces like Emma Watson, Michael Cera, Channing Tatum, Kevin Hart, Rihanna... the whole lot! And they're all playing themselves.
This Is the End was Rogen and Evan Goldberg's directorial debut, and it was a feature-length adaptation of the hilarious 2007 short film Jay and Seth Versus the Apocalypse. Anything with Seth Rogen is bound to make us laugh, but him playing himself is a double win.
The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent is the most meta and self-aware movie you'll see this year. Cage and his host Javi Gutierrez (played by Pedro Pascal) come up with a script while on acid, and it's the same script that ends up playing out in the film.
NC (vo): But the (Dubbed with an audio from Robot Chicken) stupid monkey (Normal) was affected, too, and abandons them for the time being. (The girls and the Professor are shown painting and setting up the girls' new bedroom) The girls help the Professor do everyday things like paint their room, bring in toys, and even put in some windows.
(Solemn piano music plays again as NC again takes his hat off while a caption is shown saying, "Horny Man - 1973-2002, Horny Woman - 1976-2002". The girls continue playing tag, while flying through buildings and creating a large wave in the road, sending various cars flying into the air)
Professor: (speaking with the girls in their bed) It's your superpowers. I don't think you should use them in public anymore. Just give Townsville a little time to understand your specialness.
(Newspapers are shown reporting the incident with the headline "Freaky Bug-Eyed Weirdo Girls Broke Everything". The next day, the girls go back to school to see that their classroom is in tatters and in the middle of construction, and Ms. Keane and the students are either uneasy or angry to see the girls)
NC (vo): They agree to help Jojo with his plan to repair the town, even though they don't understand what the machine they're making does. (Jojo and the girls visit the Townsville zoo) As a reward, he takes them to the zoo. But he seems to have other plans than just sightseeing. 2b1af7f3a8
