5 Actors Known For Taking Roles Similar to Who They Are in Real Life

Often we relate to many actors and their roles, and at times we also compare them. It is cool if an actor transcends his/her own identity and becomes someone else but sometimes you just want an actor to be what he/she is in their real life. Let us look at some actors who are a lot like their characters in a few roles.

Christopher Walken often comes across as being the same on screen as in interview. He is known as the king of offbeat characters that fill audiences with dread and wonder. Bill Murray in his real life has done everything right from doing dishes at a stranger’s house, bartending, eaten random people’s French fries, reading poetry, to construction workers and he has played similar roles in Lost in Translation and Zombieland. Morgan Freeman is wise, funny, kind, full of style and intelligent. He has performed similar roles in cynical, grotesque treatment against humanity (Se7en), a superhero blockbuster (The Dark Knight), or a goofball comedy (RED). Robert Downey Jr. is reckless, suave and charmingly irreverent. He is smart and a motor-mouth, and is super quick to be your friend in his real life. Even in film and TV roles he has always played his real life in different roles where he is asked play a mirror to his snarky charm. Tony Start is Downey and vice versa. Bruce Willis seems perpetually annoyed and he has exactly played the same version in movies like Pulp fiction, Die Hard, The Fifth Element and The Sixth Sense. The list also has some popular names like Adam Sandler, Seth Rogen, Samuel L Jackson, John Malkovich and many more.
