10 Actors Who Were Cast Against Type And Totally Nailed It

9. Dr. Norman Spencer - Harrison Ford (What Lies Beneath)

What Lies Beneath "What?" you say. "Harrison Ford playing a doctor is not against type - that's all he ever plays." And you're totally right - look over Harrison Ford's filmography and you'll see that he's played a sh*t ton of doctors across the span of his career, though his turn in Robert Zemeckis' neat little thriller What Lies Beneath is embedded with a little twist. If you haven't seen the movie, I suggest you stop reading right now, given that the movie eventually culminates in a twist where we find out that Ford's character is secretly a murderer and the villain of the movie. It's totally unexpected, given that Ford always plays the hero - and he's surprisingly great at being scary.
