If you're a film fan, there is always one actor that seems to play the same person in every role. No matter what the content of the film is, this person has played the same character a million times. It might be that this person is great at playing this character or it could be that they have no range and are pigeon-holed into the role. So here is a look at actors who play the same character in every film and television production they are in.

Sean Bean

Film buffs know the name and the general audience knows the face. Bean has been acting for over twenty years and his characters are usually gruff, warriors in period pieces.

Film goers will remember him as the ill-fated Boromir in Lord of the Rings and television fans will remember him as the dearly departed Ned Stark on Game of Thrones. In fact, Bean has died on camera at least 20 times. He dies so often onscreen that there is a YouTube supercut of all the horrible ways Bean has met his demise.

Apparently, fans felt sorry for Bean, who is a solid actor, and decided to launch the website dontkillseanbean.com. It must have worked, because Bean has been dying less on camera or so it seems. In any case, his multiple untimely deaths have earned Bean a place in the hearts of fans, so maybe it wasn't such a bad thing.

Keanu Reeves

Reeves has been acting since 1984. He started out as the stoner/cute beach boy and then graduated to meatier roles. The highlight of his career is when he took on the role of Neo in The Matrix.

The iconic character made him a certified A-list star and made the film go down in history as one of the most inventive and imaginative science fiction films since Star Wars.

Unfortunately, for Reeves, people liked his Neo character so much that they tailored a lot of his following roles on the character. For instance, in Constantine, Reeves brought the doomed, demon-hunting comic book character John Constantine to life. He was a gun-toting, dry witted man in a black suit, just like Neo. Then he did John Wick. Once again, Reeves carried a gun, wore a black suit and was pretty much emotionless. It could be that Reeves is typecast, which is like the friend zone of acting, but at least he's trying to break the mold. His voice will be featured in Keanu, a comedy about a missing cat that he shares a name with.

Samuel L. Jackson

It seems that Samuel L. Jackson has been in every movie ever made.

He frequents Quentin Tarantino films, but it seems that no matter where he lands, he's always the angry, screaming thug, whether that be in a suit or in bums clothes. His yell is so commonplace that it is recognizable within the first seconds of its utterance. In Coming To America, he was the yelling thief who robbed McDowells. In Pulp Fiction, he was the yelling thug for hire, Jules. In Django Unchained, he was the yelling house slave Stephen. Even in Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, where he's supposed to be a jedi that rules over his emotions, he's yelling. He's also famous for his overuse of the word, motherf**cker and like Bean, there's a YouTube compilation of his repeated use of the expletive.
