OK, I admit I'm dimmer than a dim thing in Dimland, but isn't that the same thing?



No, not really. It isn't about who they played but that they played A certain character in certain films.

I'd be more specific but that would give too much away. Again, look at Davis & Jackson portrayals of Elizabeth I. What makes them different from the movies that Cate made of Elizabeth I?



Well, Glenda played Eliz in a film called Mary, Queen of Scots, and in a tv series
Bette played her in Private Lives of Eliz & Essex, and The Virgin Queen
Cate played her twice.

Glenda played her on big and little screen; Bette just the big, ditto Cate.

It doesn't seem to have to do with Oscar nominations/wins.

I'm giving up to a worthier player

Right.

Right.

Right. And the different between what her two films were and how Davis and Jackson's films were made was... ???

Come on... you can do it... Try not to cheat, now...

(HUGE Hint... Cate's second portrayal was a _____ to the first one!)

FINALLY!


That's right - Cate's second movie was a sequel to her first, but neither Bette's nor Glenda's second portrayals were sequels to their first. Now, how does that apply to Don (Donald) 'Red' Barry? And for the prize, which was the third person I originally spoke about who did the most famous non-sequential portrayals of a character?

Peter O'Toole. Henry II. You wrote: "The third person on the list portrayed someone who had absolutely nothing to do with Elizabeth I."
but Henry II was Elizabeth's direct ancestor....

You've got it!

Now, I didn't include Gary Bergdorff on this list because technically the part he played on TV - while it was a reprisal and wasn't a sequel - it was a spin-off from the movie.

Ancestor sure, but come on, she was eight monarchs away from Henry II. I truly doubt she ever gave Henry II a second thought during her whole lifetime! And by the way, Don 'Red' Barry first played the part of Jesse James in the movie Days of Jesse James (1939) where despite the movie's title, he was actually doing a supporting role to Roy Rogers playing himself. He then helped write Jesse James' Women (1954) where he played the title role, again.

Oh, I think I found more. Frank McGlynn Sr. did a whole bunch of movies in the 30s where he played Abraham Lincoln, as well as in a short in 1924. That list of characters on IMDb shows a few actors who reprised their roles as Lincoln but I didn't bother to see if they were sequels or not. Stephen Roberts did four feature length movies and a TV mini-series where he played Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and not one of them is a sequel to any of the others.

If anyone else can think of any others, let me know. Seems the best bet is to search for a famous person as a character and look down the list of actors who played them.

Okay Rocky and Beanmimo - you've got to decide who goes next!

Fair enough - especially since without his getting the sequel bit (even though he may have cheated by looking at my semi-hidden hint), I don't think anyone would have figured this out.

So, Beany, what's your brain-burner trivia question?

You are right mostly but a little wrong.

Who has played two different characters in two different films with the same last name? The films are not sequels, and have different directors, etc.

John Wayne played different characters with the last name "Smith" in different movies over the years. I can't remember any of the titles right now.

I was thinking of Colin Firth (who played a Darcy in both a BBC version of Pride & Prejudice, and its modern adaptation Bridget Jones' Diary) but John Wayne works--your turn!
