I'm not sure it's "Hollywood" per se keeping these people from doing movies, Broadway or whatever. The general public often won't accept people in roles which depart too drastically from their television persona. Now I ask you, would you want to see Bob Newhart as a child molesting Nazi? There is that other thing — ability. Many actors good enough for television just plain can't cut it on the big screen.It doesn't translate well. On the other hand, Tom Selleck did reasonably well in movies. Sometimes it works the other way; Jim Carey spent a decade trying for success on TV (does anyone remember "The Mouse Factory"?) before In Living Color launched his career. Then he became more popular in the movies than he ever was on TV. Of course many currently popular movie actors got their start in the soaps.<br><br>What I'm saying is that I don't believe there's any grand plot by unnamed Powers That Be and if some actors feel locked in a ghetto at least the streets are paved with gold.<br><br><br>John<br>[color:red]I don't need no steenkin'...</font color=red>
