Name that Actor/Actress (or Role)

Recommended Posts

Other than the previous clues I dropped, Mrs Wolf said to mention "THE GREEN FAIRY" (which is a nickname for something.)  She got it from the first 3 names plus a guess- then again, she's been around me and hearing what made me think of this character/real person. 

 

For the curious, Peter Sellers played a character who dressed as him, and Mel Brooks played a character who intentionally did an "impression" of him.

I have not seen "Moulin Rouge."  I HAVE seen "Blazing Saddles."  I remember Mel Brooks playing the Governor and also an Indian chief, but I don't get the "impression" part.

The Governor did an impression of someone.  He even accompanied it with music he vocalized.  IIRC, it was when he visited the town.

Actually, he did 2 impressions- one of Harpo Marx and one of this person.    Even if that reminds you of nothing, at least look back at the 3 clues I dropped before mentioning "the green fairy" (absinthe)  in the preceding posts.

Name the character.

Jose Ferrer

Vincent Menjou Cortes

John Leguizamo

(No, this one should not be easy, but I thought I'd try a short round in between some others.)

Not a Spaniard, and he wasn't painted as a nobleman in any version of him that made it to the theaters.

Peter Sellers (sorta)

Règis Royer

Mel Brooks (sorta)

(I didn't think this would be so hard to win.... )

Guessing this Frenchman is NOT a tall order.

Napoleon?

There's 2 Frenchmen famous for being short. One was not actually short, and has a connection to neither absinthe nor painting.  That one's Napoleon.   Who's the other?

Toulouse Lautrec?

Freaking YES!!!!!

I even made a reference "TO WIN". (To win? To lose?)

Remember the Governor when the press asked his impressions?  He did Harpo Marx, then Toulouse Lautrec.

A swing and a miss.  (I don't even know what the character "Brad Majors" is.)

Jack Aranson

Danny Glover

Barry Bostwick

John Barrymore

Orson Welles

William Hurt

(Brad Majors was the guy who stumbled his way through Dr Frankenfurter's mansion in "the Rocky Horror Picture Show."  Whenever he says his full name, the audience insults him.)

 

Ok, classic role, since we have a Barrymore and Orson Welles.  William Hurt in a classic role suggest something classical and British.  Cautious to avoid spoilers, I looked up "Lethal Weapon" and confirmed Danny Glover was the other cop, the one who was getting too old for this.   He's African-American.

 

I'm thinking Shakespeare.

Although it's not ridiculous to see a "black" man playing a (white)  Shakepearean role, it's also not ridiculous for the reverse.  So, which direction do I guess?

 

I'm going with the title role of The Moor of Venice.  My guess is "OTHELLO."

(This was actually an Irish role, spelled "O'thello." Most people drop the apostrophe.  ;)   )

Not Shakespeare, but you have the right idea.

I'll let you ruminate a bit more, because my next two names will probably give it away.  To be fair, I wouldn't have gotten it from any of the ones I've chosen so far.

Oh, I ruminated. I just didn't post because I didn't come up with anything worth posting.  

*looks the list over*  How about Captain Ahab?
