No matter where you’re looking, there’s probably a Tom Hardy movie playing in that direction. Ever since he made it big as Eames in Christopher Nolan’s “Inception,” he’s been in one heavily-muscled leading role after another. That means that he can’t be spending too much time recovering from injuries – hence the need for a stunt double.
This picture shows him standing with his stunt double on the set of “Mad Max: Fury Road,” in which he plays the titular madman. Both guys look kitted out to tangle, which means they get to stay over there with all their fury.
Which One is the Real Russian Doll?
We've looked it up, and we're pretty sure it's impossible to actually tell which of these three women is Natasha Lyonne, star of the show “Russian Doll,” and which of the three are her stunt doubles. Stunt triples. You get the idea.
It just goes to show you why shows are able to use stunt doubles so well – slap a curly ginger wig on them and give them an eye-catching outfit, and most viewers (or article writers) won't be able to tell the difference. Send us a postcard if you know which one is the real one.
Taking it to the Next Level
This picture of actress Awkwafina on the set of “Jumanji: The Next Level” is an interesting look behind the scenes of a film that spawned off of the most horrifically scary movie ever. Big pouches? Long scarves? Fingerless gloves? It's a far cry from the board game movie that starred the dearly departed Robin Williams.
We of course have no idea what the movie or the others in the franchise are about since we've avoided anything that has to do with the name “Jumanji” since 1995. Don't talk to us about it, it was a bad night.
So Similar It's Almost Supernatural
It's amazing what a similar hairstyle, sense of dress, and makeup can do to make people look similar. This stunt double for Jared Padalecki looks more like him than the brother he has on the show, but that's not all that weird – siblings can look quite dissimilar.
But, when you're a famous actor's stunt double, it's your job to look like him. We also can't help but notice the double has quite the evil look on his face – maybe he's tired of getting knocked around while playing second fiddle.
Somehow, There Are Two of Them
If you ever looked at Melissa McCarthy, you probably didn't think to yourself “now there's a woman who knows how to handle a fall.”
Of course, for a film like “Thunder Force,” which has McCarthy acting as a superheroine, that means she needs to have a stunt double to make sure she isn't laid up in the hospital for a few months. Make sure you don't get those two ladies confused, or we might not be able to see movies like “The Back-Up Plan,” “Identity Thief,” “The Boss,” and plenty of others.
