@ matalina; Thanks! I added her to the list. :)
@ drugs; Thanks, and I agree! I like JLH, but she didn't fit the role at all. ):

I liked the Actors portraying Musicians - list a little more but thats not your fault but the director's or whatever ;)

Was Ed Wood really an actor? Aaah yes, he acted in his own movies, right?

Yeah, he acted in a bunch of movies that he also directed and produced. :)

Really like this list! I didn't know there were so many biographical movies on the lives of classic actors.

Ergh! I want to hit Jennifer Love Hewitt for failing and insultingly trying to be the legendary Audrey Hepburn.

Oooh and Sherilyn Fenn is almost there, but there will only ever be one Elizabeth Taylor though.
