No actor pigeon holes himself...the guys that pay him to repeat things over and over do that along with the audience who the producers want to please. You didn't like Snatched at all? Depth? What, Pacino has depth?
I gotta admit I had thought Statham had a pro football career but that appears to be only his buddy Vinnie Jones' thing from doing a little wiki reading. He was quite the diver though and athlete. Vinnie is also pigeonholed, and that partly comes from his reputation from football from what I know (my friends from England have told me as much at least). Some athletes do well as actors, as do many comedians. Some actors just don't do as well with only an acting background...
