Actors in Family Film Roles!

This is a blog post I have thought about putting together in the past and I have tried to come up with as many actors as possible who I have typecast in what were more family/child aimed films. Feel free to have a think about which actors you still see in this way as well!

Along with Gustave it is about Zero Moustafa, the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend. As we find out the story to how he came to own The Grand Budapest Hotel …
