27 Times Actors Cleverly Played Multiple Characters In The Same Film

Sometimes we get a weird feeling looking at certain characters while watching a movie. It’s as if they resembled someone you’ve already seen in the same film. Don’t worry, you’re not seeing double. It’s just that sometimes multiple characters in the same film are played by the same actor. It is sometimes done for story reasons (some movies are even built around it), but other times it’s for the sake of expediency or just a total accident.

We have gathered some of the brightest examples of actors who have pulled double (or triple, or quadruple) duty in a single movie. Scroll down and check out the list:
