How Trading Places Broke Jamie Lee Curtis Out Of The Horror Genre

Trading Places helped Jamie Lee Curtis break out of horror, and she was cast against the wishes of the studio. By then, Curtis was so well known in the genre they didn’t think she would work in a major comedy, but Landis insisted. While she had played strong characters previously, Trading Places allowed her to show off a lighter, comedic side. While Murphy – who was coming off the back of 48 Hrs – and Aykroyd may take the limelight, Curtis more than holds her own throughout the movie, including when she dons a disguise towards the finale.

It helps that Trading Places was a huge success, meaning other filmmakers got to see Jamie Lee Curtis outside of the horror genre. She branched further out with the likes of A Fish Called Wanda and Blue Steel, though she did eventually make a horror return with Halloween H20 in 1998. Curtis has since warmly embraced her horror roots with the Blumhouse Halloween series, but Trading Place was a real breakthrough that allowed her to explore other kinds of roles.
