Is it just me or does anyone else have an issue when actors go from a television show to a movie. I spend time trying to figure out what they played in before. I miss part of the movie because I'm trying to figure it out.
It's not an issue when they did a great job at that television show because maybe the director found them capable. On the other hand, some get hired because of their looks. I love seeing familiar faces, though!
I'm old enough to remember when Tom Hanks did it. I don't have a problem with it as long as they don't hop back and forth between the two. That just makes it look like they don't know where they belong.
I usually pay attention to the casts of the movie. So, familiar faces lead me to watch something because someone I know is a part of the film. They seem to make the movie or series more enjoyable since I get to compare their other performances.
