The Best Dual Roles on TV, Ranked

26 April 2017 9:24 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It’s difficult enough for an actor to be tasked with transforming into a new person — in aspect, personality, movement and spirit — from role to role. But when double duty (or more) is required within the same project, that’s when the real challenge kicks in, because the viewer must be convinced that the same actor is distinctly different when they’re playing both parts in rapid succession, sometimes even side-by side or interacting with each other.

Dating back to shows like “The Patty Duke Show,” “Bewitched” and “I Dream of Jeannie,” the dual role usually allowed for storylines involving twins, cousins or other lookalikes. Even “Knight Rider” stuck a mustache and goatee on David Hasselhoff to give him an evil twin.

How Mary Tyler Moore Changed the Female TV Hero

26 January 2017 7:55 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

The top three rated American shows of the 1969-1970 television season were, in order, Laugh-In, a ribald comedy show in which women were basically bikini-wearing furniture, and Gunsmoke and Bonanza, two cowboy shows in which tumbleweeds outnumbered female characters. Into this less-than-encouraging landscape, The Mary Tyler Moore Show was dropped into the CBS Saturday night line-up in September 1970 as if from a great height.
