Maybe you're thinking of Eddie Murphy in the two Nutty Professor movies as well as in Norbit and Vampire in Brooklyn and Coming to America and Bowfinger and finally, What's Alan Watching?.

(Think he gets paid extra for doing all those different parts in all those movies?)

Then again, you could be thinking of Peter Sellers. His multiple role movies were:

The Fiendish Plot of Dr. Fu Manchu
The Prisoner of Zenda
Soft Beds, Hard Battles
Casino Royale (1967)
After the Fox
Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb
Lolita (1962)
The Mouse That Roared
The Case of the Mukkinese Battle-Horn
Penny Points to Paradise
Let's Go Crazy

(Yes, I am getting the full lists from IMDb but I thought of the actors on my own, thankyouverymuch.)

Well, I'm talking about playing doubles, not just multiple roles. The characters are supposed to look exactly like each other.

How many of the above qualify?

Can't accept TFLW as Irons's characters are not doubles ie they are not two identical looking characters in the same time, as they are in dead ringers.

But it was a nice try.

Just to make my intended answer easier, this actor not only played two sets of doubles but another one of his films includes the word "double" in its title, although he didn't play doubles in that one. Now I've given it away.

Wait, you mean like Nicolas Cage in Adaptation where he plays the two brothers and Face/Off where he plays both Castor Troy and Sean Archer (as does Travolta)? But I don't see any film he made with the word "double" in it, nor a second dual role for Travolta.

Well, it can't be Jean-Claude Van Damme although I see he's done some dual role pictures but one of them was called Double Impact, but since you say this actor doesn't play a dual role in a movie with the word double in it, that's not what you mean.

(Anyway, I've never seen any of his films so I don't know if he plays look-alikes in these dual roles or not.)

But... she wasn't in any film with the word "double" in the title, that I know of.

Yes, brilliant, except, I don't know if you know this, but it wasn't actually Fred McMurray, it was world famous conductor Leopold Stokowski.

Anyhow, would it be too much trouble, luvvy, just to name the actor who played two double roles in two separate films, and, if you know, the films he played them in.

Thank you sooo much.

No double in the titles but Jack Nicholson played:

Mars Attacks! (1996) .... President James Dale / Art Land

AND

Batman (1989) .... Joker / Jack Napier

yes, of course, I'm cheating!

Fred MacMurray was in Double Indemnity. In the movie Pardon My Past (1945) he plays the dual roles of Eddie York and Francis Pemberton. He also plays a dual roles of Richard Hood and Richard 'Dick' Grantin in Men Without Names (1935).

So, is that the answer? Fred MacMurray?
