10 Actors Who Refused To Use CGI

The sight of a deceased member of acting royalty being brought back from the grave or an older performer having the clock turned back via CGI wizardry has become increasingly common to see in recent times. Yet, with that has also come the increase in debate over whether or not it is ethical to further add to a performer's legacy after death or harness a VFX Time Stone of sorts to relive a star's glory days.

Sarah Paulson clearly feels that digitally turning back time isn't the way to go as evidenced by her comments on a proposed CGI Jack Nicholson being eventually introduced to her Netflix series Ratched. With the show looking destined to land Paulson's Nurse Mildred Ratched in the same era as One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, it's understandable why some folk would see the arrival of Randle Patrick McMurphy as the logical step to take.

But as Paulson put it when speaking to The Wrap, "I certainly don’t want to see me acting opposite a computer-generated Jack Nicholson. I mean, I don’t think that sounds like a good idea." So, don't expect to see this particular reunion go down on the small screen anytime soon.
