Some actors show up in frock flicks and make you go “huh?” Others make you actively wretch, gag, and turn away. Yet more actors get cast repetitively in historical costume movies and TV shows so much that we’re sick of seeing them. There’s a whole host of reasons why a certain actor isn’t a good fit for costume dramas. Since this is Snark Week, we don’t have to get into the subtle nuance of it — let’s just be judgey!
Tell us who you picked! Did we miss anyone egregiously bad?
