Male Doubles: Post 4

I accumulated so many short posts adding one or two doubles that I decided to combine all the male ones into another big post. So here it is -- Male Doubles: Post 4! Note that all of these have been published previously...no new ones here. But soon, Male Doubles Post 5! That'll have new ones. :)

John Rhys-Davies


Gimli (Lord of the Rings, 2001, 2002, 2003)

Sallah (Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Arc 1981, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade 1989)


A Turk (?) (King Solomon's Mines, 1985)*


Voice for Cassim (Aladdin, 1995)*(correct picture?)


Ciaran Hinds


Captain Wentworth (Persuasion, 1995)


Sir Tarleton (Amazing Grace, 2006)


Bill Paterson


Mr. Gibson (Wives and Daughters, 1999)


Lord Dundas (Amazing Grace, 2006)



Andy Serkis


Voice for Gollum (and Gollum's actions were based on his own) (Lord of the Rings, 2001, 2002, 2003)


Captain Haddock (Tintin, 2011)*


Rigaud (Little Dorrit, 2008)


Alun Armstrong

Bucket (Bleak House, 2005)

***Interesting, Alun Armstrong has also acted in two versions of Oliver Twist, The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby, David Copperfield, AND The Mystery of Edwin Drood. I think we could say he's essential to Dickens!***

Yep, the picture for Cassim is correct, but it's from the sequel of Aladdin called "Aladdin and the King of Thieves".

Ah, you just watched your first Indiana Jones movie? Which one did you watch?

He also is the host for Lamplighter's theater. One of my favorite actors!

Gracie said...

I love John Rhys-Davies. He is an excellent actor, especially in the Lord of the Rings.

Miss Elizabeth, Indiana Jones and the Lost Ark. I enjoyed it. Review coming...in late March, I think.

Katelyn, cool!

Gracie, me too. :) And I quite agree! Perfect Gimli.

John Rhys-Davies is acting as an Indian villain in an epic movie currently in production by Burns Family Studios. It's set during colonial times, and looks like a lot of fun! :) www.beyondthemaskmovie.com

Oh my, Lady Bibliophile, that does look like a fun movie! And John Rhys-Davies...yup, it'll be fun. :D
