Oh, /r/AskReddit, you have so many strange and confounding questions, so color me surprised that there was a simpler, gentler question that popped onto my screen.

Matt Damon always needs to be rescued. Sean Bean always dies. Who are some other actors that seem to always find themselves in the same predicament movie after movie? - CommentToBeDeleted
EarlGreyhair - Adam Sandler always gets rejected by a girl at the beginning of the movie for being a loser, and then comes out on top. It happens in: Happy Gilmore Big Daddy Pixels The Wedding Singer
MrMeeeseeksLeo tries to con people - Titanic, Catch Me if You Can, Gangs of New York, The Great Gatsby, The Departed, Inception, The Wolf of Wall Street

Holy shit, I never realized DiCaprio was always a conniving shitbrick in his movies. As Scienlologist points out: Sort of cons himself in Shutter Island.


TheRealDynamoScotch - I think Tom Hanks has a secret obsession with piss. Forrest Gump - Telling JFK “I have to pee.” Green Mile - Kidney stone limits his ability to pee. Cast Away - Sees a passing ship while peeing at night. Captain Phillips - Escapes while peeing. A League of Their Own - Takes a legendary piss in front of the ladies. Toy Story - “Somebody’s poisoned the water hole!” The Terminal - Has to pee while waiting for a call at a payphone. Apollo 13 - Long talk about peeing in space. Saving Private Ryan - Tells a story about peeing. The Burbs - Asks a neighbor if he can use their bathroom to pee. Road to Perdition - Asks to go to the bathroom in order to escape a killer. I’m sure there’s more, but that’s what I was able to think of off the top of my head.
wingsfan55 - Plus there was that time he was peeing with Tom Selleck. “In the 1998 Oscars, I found myself in the bathroom in a stall, next to Tom Selleck. So I leaned over and I said ‘looks like we’re a couple of peeing Toms.’ His angry silence is something I’ll never forget.”- Tom Hanks.
J_Dellamano - Brad Pitt always eats.

jraygun13 - Steve Buscemi gets killed in a lot of movies. I believe the Coen Brothers said that their goal was to have him become smaller and smaller with each death. He was shot in the face in Miller’s Crossing, chopped up in a wood chipper in Fargo, and cremated in The Big Lebowski. Here’s a video of a lot of his movie deaths, and you can turn on closed captioning to see the movie and cause of death

angelproof - Rachel McAdams always finds herself marrying time traveller guys. It’s uncanny. Time Traveller’s Wife Midnight in Paris About Time
