This is a list about movies where a single actor has played multiple roles in the same film.

This does NOT include
# Actors who play a character with multiple names and/or a secret identity (e.g. superheroes);
# Actors who play a single character that displays multiple personalities, either as a result of spiritual possession or dissociative identity disorder, or because the character is acting;
# Actors who play multiple copies of a single character(e.g. Hugo Weaving as Agent Smith in The Matrix series);
# Non-speaking extras, or stock characters (e.g. Redshirts);
# Voice actors who do not physically appear on screen in multiple roles (e.g. John Rhys Davies as Gimli and Treebeard in the The Lord of the Rings film trilogy - Gimli is on screen, but Treebeard is a voice-only role);
# Compilation films (e.g. Charlie Chaplin Festival), or anthology films with separate, unconnected stories (e.g. Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex (But Were Afraid to Ask)).

Eddie Murphy, Mike Myers , Peter Sellers, Cheech Marin and Jean-Claude Van Damme are having many multi-role movies while John Cleese, Michael Palin, Eric Idle, Alec Guinness are in few movies with multi-roles but more than four roles

Just saw this list and it's brilliant. Think I ought to point out that Mike Myers portrays four characters in Austin Powers: Goldmember: Austin, Dr. Evil, Fat Bastard and Goldmember.
Posted: 4 years ago at Jul 25 18:53
Interesting. You'd think there would be even more, since its so convenient (and cheap) to have someone act in multiple roles, especially in super low budget films.

By the way is it in Jean-Claude Van Damme's contract that he MUST play multiple characters in EVERY movie? Sheesh.
