Sure, listing particular 'roles' is fine, like having a sniper, explosives expert, subterfuge expert and general infantry-type in a military roleplay makes sense and ensures the main cast of characters has some kind of balance. But seeing specified lists of characters with pre-stated names, personalities, appearances and backgrounds is outright ridiculous.

I mean, if I see Karate Kid Jaden Smith, I'm going to think they act like Karate Kid Jaden Smith. Jennifer's Body Megan Fox is gonna be a possessed cannibal, and Jumper Hayden Christensen is going to be a bank robber from a broken home. Screw the RP's personal canon; that's what the appearance tells me they are, and the GM very likely isn't gonna let you pick someone else to use (God forbid letting you use your words instead of a big-ass GIF).
