25 great movie performances by actors in multiple roles

5 November 2015 1:41 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




From Thomas F Wilson in Back To The Future to Nicolas Cage and John Travolta in Face/Off - when actors play multiple roles...

The dramatic use of actors playing multiple characters is a bold and rather theatrical device that has its ups and downs. It goes at least as far back as Captain Hook being played by the same actor who plays the Darling children's father in stage productions of Peter Pan, a technique largely adopted in film adaptations of the story, too (hello to Jason Isaacs).

It's used a lot in cinema too. Done well, it's impressive, but when it's bad, it's Jack & Jill. Whether used in comedy or drama or outright horror, there are countless examples of actors delivering terrific performances in more than one role at once, and that's before we even get past Cloud Atlas. Still, we've had a go at totting up 25 of the best. »

Rumour: Dominic Cooper for TV Preacher adaptation?

13 March 2015 2:09 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

It looks like the Marvel universe’s Howard Stark, Dominic Cooper, might be jumping ships to Preacher, from DC’s Vertigo imprint…

We don’t pass on every rumour we hear on this site, but this is one that has a certain air of plausibility to it - The Tracking Board is reporting that Dominic Cooper is allegedly top of the list to headline AMC’s telly adaptation of the Preacher comic.

We’ve got to share The Tracking Board’s photo mash-up, too, just to show you the comparison between Cooper and Preacher’s protagonist Reverend Jesse Custer…

He certainly looks the part, has dabbled in darker work before (see: The Devil's Double) and could possibly be tempted to take further TV work after the rave reviews he garnered as Howard Stark in Agent Carter.
