As we all know, many movies are ironically cast at the outset simply to showcase an actor’s diversity or to make some larger point. Examples in this league include Charlize Theron as a grotesque killer in Monster and Brad Pitt as a slummy, badass in Fight Club. However, some movies don’t reveal their ironies until many months or even years after an initial release. These cases are not only intriguing on their face value, but they sometimes make it seem like the movie itself has a role in determining the actor’s fate.
Below is a list of the top 10 most ironically cast movies, specific to those ironies realized only in hindsight, of all time. Note: Not listed in any particular order.
Basic Premise:Showgirls chronicles the rise of aspiring dancer Nomi Malone (Berkley) as she claws her way to the top of the showgirl ladder. After drifting into Vegas and working at some fairly undesirable establishments, Nomi scores a big audition. A few backstabs later, she’s a bonafide headliner. But in the end, she realizes that showgirl stardom may not be worth the questionable morals she has developed, so she heads to Hollywood where good morals and big success await her!
Aside from the obvious irony of Saved by the Bell good girl Jessie Spano taking to the stripper pole, the real twist on this story is the parallel between Nomi and Ms. Berkley. While Nomi Malone achieves major success in Vegas and is presumably on her way to the success in Hollywood, the film demolished Ms. Berkley’s own aspirations: her acting career has yet to recover.
