And I'm not saying that casting directors are supposed to only pick people who look exactly like the person they are to portray, but damn. at least get somebody close. Otherwise they either look nothing like them and the believability is lost, or they have to do so much too them to make them look the part that they end up looking retarded and overly made up so... believability again is lost.
The actor's image & acting should blend so well with the image and reality of the person they're playing that we completely forget it's acting. For example; Jamie Foxx as Ray Charles.
