Roles Where Actors Portrayed Much Younger Characters

  • Cinelinx
New Year’s resolutions are a time to work towards a transformation of your body and/or your life. To honor these goals, this month we’re going to look at transformative roles in film. This week we look at some prominent examples of actors playing characters that are much younger than the actors’ actual age.

It’s one thing to mentally prepare to play a character in a movie or a play. It’s another thing to physically transform yourself in order to better identify with the role. Some transformations are only skin deep; extensive makeup or prosthetics may be sufficient to pull of the necessary look.

Spotlight: Leeza Gibbons's Charity Work

Leeza Gibbons has been entering the living rooms of America for over 25 years. Through her tenure as anchor of Entertainment Tonight in the 1980s and 90s and her popular talkshow Leeza (which garnered 27 Daytime Emmy nominations), Gibbons became a household name while highlighting her intelligence, sensitivity, and compassion.

As a presenter, producer and business woman, Gibbons exudes positivity and energy – she celebrated her 50th birthday while performing on season 4 of ABC’s Dancing With The Stars. And as well as launching her Fearless campaign to motivate women to live fearlessly at any age, she also has time to promote her own brand of mineral based makeup – Sheer Cover – and develop her Sheer Inspiration Life Coaching business. She even has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. As if that isn’t enough, Gibbons also took part in Olivia Newton-John's Great Walk To Beijing to raise money for cancer treatment.

Sometimes New Year’s resolutions really do stick.

Last year, CNN anchor Don Lemon memorably rang in 2017 live on air in a New Orleans bar alongside fellow anchor Brooke Baldwin.

“I need a little bit more balance in work/life,” he said. “I may be open to a relationship this year.”

Matt Rodgers on the Cinematic 12 Days of Christmas…

Tis the season, you know the one, no matter your own belief system you’re going to be exposed to seasonal songs being pumped into your every waking hour by supermarkets, cinemas, and family members.

Here at Flickering Myth we’re not going to be a pre-ghosted Ebenezer Scrooge, we’re going to embrace the festivities like a skipping, dancing, Muppet carrying Michael Caine, by skewing one of the most beloved Christmas songs into a cinema themed run down. Ladies and gentlemen, here are the 12 Days of Christmas, movie style.

12 Drummers Drumming

There’s only one obvious place to go for the first selection of our Christmas congregation, and it’s not the Nick Cannon percussion classic Drumline. Instead we’ve opted for the Damien Chazelle film that should have won all the Oscars; Whiplash.
