When most think of Sylvester Stallone, they picture him in very macho, action roles such as the “Rocky” franchise, “Rambo,” and other action and drama films, especially throughout the 80s. But there is a softer side to the action hero.
Stallone had a role in the 2003 movie “Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over.” The Rocky star actually took on a few different characters in the film like Sebastian or “The Toymaker” and even some other smaller characters. Kids may not have noticed Stallone in the roles, but the adults probably didn’t miss it!
Michael J. Fox In Back to the Future Part II
Marty McFly has become one of the most beloved fictional characters in pop culture after the release of the "Back to the Future" franchise. Audiences became fans after getting to know the down-to-earth character.
But fans may not have expected that Fox would play more than one character in part two of the franchise. Other than playing Marty McFly, Fox also appears as Marlene, the teenage daughter of McFly and his future wife, Jennifer. The resemblance was, of course, impossible to miss!
Warwick Davis In Harry Potter
"Harry Potter" soon became a film franchise with a massive fanbase. The audience was treated to a wide range of characters in each of the films, which meant that there were plenty of makeup choices to hide the actor’s faces.
Because of this, those watching for the first time may not have noticed that Filius Flitwickthe, the goblin Griphook, and the Charms professor at Hogwarts are both played by actor Warwick Davis. Additionally, if viewers look closely enough, they will notice that the actor even played a third role in the franchise as the goblin bank teller at Gringotts.
Margaret Hamilton In The Wizard of Oz
This dual role will be easily recognized by "Wizard of Oz" fans. Actress Margaret Hamilton played parallel antagonists in the classic fantasy tale. Viewers first see Hamilton as the heartless Almira Gulch, the woman who threatened Dorothy’s beloved dog, Toto.
Fans will remember that she later appears in Dorothy’s dream as the Wicked Witch of the West, a metaphorical character for Almira. Hamilton will be remembered for easily personifying both villainous characters, but especially for the Wicked Witch of the West, who could forget that green skin!
Tom Hanks In Cloud Atlas
Many times, fan appreciation only deepens after seeing an actor bring multiple characters to life within the same story. Beloved by fans, Tom Hanks has been in a variety of films over the years but rarely has played more than one character in a project.
In the sci-fi film "Cloud Atlas," however, Hanks lent his talents to six (yes, six) different roles! Not surprisingly, Hanks brought unique life to each character. The artistic film premiered in 2012 and left audiences riveted by the various characters and storylines, especially Hanks’s characters.
