      Also in agreement.

  • dark &lovely

    Oh wow, I almost can’t tell which one is John McCain.

  • Can You See It

    Dorothy Dandridge and a younger Dianne Carole look similar.

  • Sunnee

    But they all did good playing these roles.

  • DDB

    The Oscars so screwed Denzel!!! If Spike would have kept his mouth shut, Denzel would have won. Not condemning Spike but just saying.


    Where is Leon? He favored David Ruffin really good.

    • such and such

      What about when Leon potrayed little Richard?

  • beautifulme

    • such and such

      Yea he sure did. His name is Dennis Quaid.

    • tommykimon

      Yep I forgot about them they both nailed it especially Lawrence Fishburn I hated his character. He played Ike very well.

  • PHNX

    Yes Angela nailed Tina and Laurence nailed Ike! Oh and Jeffery Wright as Muddy Waters! That is all…lol!

  • heliguy

    I always thought charles barkley would of been perfect for the role ,even tho he doesnt act,he dam sure looks and sound like ali a lil bit ,anyone agree?

  • dreamgirl

    Val Kilmer as Jim Morrison, Sissy Spacek as Loretta Lynn, Gary Busey as Buddy Holly and Lou Diamond Phillips as Richie Valens are all honorable mentions for the look-a-like catergory!

  • Christielove1468

    To me, Charles Barkley looks nothing like Muhammed Ali. Will Smith didnt either but he played that role perfectly. I agree that the actors shown above nailed that part perfectly! Ed Harris look just like John McCain,maybe one day they will find an actor and actress to portray Our President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama.

  • Got that Right

    Flex Alexander as Micheal Jackson!! Lol
