With multiple roles theme, I had an instant thought to go for the easy way out and pick twins. There are many actors who have played both twin versions, and it would have been fun. But.. I decided to go with a less obvious route. Meaning, I’m recommending three movies where actors play multiple roles but aren’t necessarily the same person. You would say it’s a doppelgänger theme within a theme, except one, which is totally different. It’s a bit of a mixed bag but no twins were involved. All of these multiple roles picks come from movies with single word titles as well.
The always awesome and funny m.Brown over at Two Dollar Cinema is hosting Mt. Rushmore of Movies Blogathon again! And this year, just like last year, I’m sticking to things I know and appreciate the most in this precious world – beards. So here are four Sam Rockwell performances, where he sports a great, and most importantly, a sexy beard!
Last week was weird, and by weird, I mean horrible and shit but wonderful at the same time. Lower back pain is no fun at all, and even while sitting and not moving much, it hurts and you are constantly feeling discomfort. Meanwhile though, I spent my days watching movies with Sam Rockwell, and doing some light-reading, so it was actually like an enjoyable discomfort..?
This week’s theme is kind of a difficult one to crack because two of my recommendations are, for the lack of a better word, spoilers. Like, if I would have known beforehand that these movies will feature clones or dopplegängers, I would have been less surprised and therefore I would have, most likely, missed out on the most important moment. Though one of my examples has a very spoiler-esque trailer, which I luckily avoided, so technically the movie makers themselves flushed that “moment” down the toilet themselves. But enough chit-chat, you have been warned, spoilers ahead, continue at your own risk. And I’m sorry for putting together such a spoilery list.
The fact that I knew about Moon years ago, and the fact that I watched it just recently, makes me a little mad because I could have been loving it for the past seven years! Instead, I lived in a Moon absent world for seven years, without ever realizing what I was missing out on.
