Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not


  • laylaness

    Why is Colin Farrell standing in for Chris Hemsworth?

  • e jerry powell

    That's not Brad Pitt's stunt double, it's his spare parts sibling.

  • JenVegas

    WHAT DO YOU MEAN THOR HAS A STUNT DOUBLE? The God Of Thunder needs no stunt double!!

  • e jerry powell

    Deal with it!

    Hemworth is only insured for so much, and if that face gets bashed, you will be very sad.

  • Hemsworth's double could be Colin Farrell's double minus the hair and huge muscles.

  • Please do not shatter my Thor-ian fantasies.

  • The armor on Hemsworth's stunt double looks much better than the armor on Hemsworth.

  • SorayaS

    His hair is better too!

  • DarthBrookes

    If Hemsworth's stunt double can act, I'd be very worried if I was Hemsworth.

  • Guest

    Richard Bradshaw / Hugh Jackman.

  • Uriah_Creep

    A one year old article? It's like déjà vu all over again.

  • Giv

    Is that Tilda Swinton and her double or the other way with January Jones?

  • Ben

    Tilda Swinton doesn't have a stunt double, her ephemeral alien form is impervious to all forms of damage sustainable in our earthly realm.

  • bastich

    I thought her stunt double was David Bowie.

  • e jerry powell

    I can see where people might think that.

  • Strand

    Hhmmmm to be the meat in that Charlize/Stunt Double sandwich.

  • vlestragon

    Why hello there Tom Hardy sandwich! Let me just sidle on in there.

  • tweek's coffee

    Hehe. Robert Pattinson's stunt double's hair...

  • Cuca

    HELLO George Clooneyish guy! Rawrrrr!!!

  • pockets full of stones

    kate beckinsale. i was getting tired of screaming "she's so generic, she's so fucking generic!" whenever i see her face/talent but now i have the ultimate proof.

  • Idle Primate

    Imagine how hard you have to work and suffer to be the homely cousin of the star

  • Mrcreosote

    Funny I figured Adam Sandler's stunt double would be Rob Schneider as part of that "Take me with you everywhere or I'll tell people where the bodies are buried!" Deal.

  • googergieger

    Pattinson's double is hotter than Pattinson. I mean not that difficult to find someone hotter than a teenage Frankenstein, but still, thought it could do with pointing out.

  • DominaNefret

    Umm, I feel like that is just a picture of Adam Arkin standing near George Clooney, and they just so happen to be dressed similarly.
    Either that or they have a triplet.

  • Puddin

    Errr...Sarah Lane was a hell of a lot more than a stunt double. She essentially acted about 1/3 of Natalie Portman's role. Dancers represent! **Fist bump**

  • Skyler Durden

    Nope. No fist bumping. Not after that grade-a hissy fit she threw.

    BUT I'M HER DOOUUUUUBLE! IIIIIIIII DID THE DANCING! PAAYYY ATTENTION TO MEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!"

    Bitch, do you not know what you signed on for? Being a dance double is no different than being a stunt double. It means doing the job you were hired to do, with the understanding that YOU ARE A DOUBLE. YOU ARE NOT THE STAR.

    Ugh, that woman was nothing but an obnoxious.

  • AvaLehra

    Hear, hear!

  • bastich

    From the downvote, I assume that she also read your comment.

    Careful, or she might track you down and then angrily dance up on you.

  • $3647259

    Nah. That was actually me (bracing myself for the downvotes right now...).

    Sorry, but I had to. Not because I disagree entirely with Durden's comment, but because Portman's Oscar campaign (that has to be one of the most aggressive I've ever seen) heavily implied that most of the dancing -- including extremely difficult moves only a skilled ballerina was capable of -- was done by her. They did push the idea that Portman was capable of doing all those things and conveniently omitted the fantastic CGI head/face replacement used to make it look like it's her doing all the dancing (when she's standing "on pointe", for instance). They're clearly trying to sell Portman as some sort of prodigy that not only had lost a dramatic amount of weight for her role, but who could also learn/perform really difficult ballet moves after just months of training.

    Granted, she did aknowledge the stunt doubles at some point (there was another one, if I'm not wrong), but the closer to the Oscars it got, the more they forgot to mention them. And they were a great part of her acting, like Puddin said above.

    There was even a video on Youtube, showing the head replacement thing, that was taken down by VFX a week before the Oscars and replaced with another (with the same amount of time) that didn't show that (the parts showing the head replacement had been edited out). Someone else posted another video showing what VFX had done.

    Sarah Lane may have been obnoxious, but I understand her irritation. She practically spent her whole life training to do something others were giving Portman the credit for.

    EDIT -- the video:

  • Cuca

    The fact that Natalie Portman is even bonier and skinnier than the actual ballerina is scary and sad.

  • Ben

    I'd kind of expect it to be honest, Ballerinas are hardcore mother fuckers, they wouldn't survive being all skin and bones.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    I'd take a Clooney and faux-Clooney sandwich.

  • dizzylucy

    The Brad Pitt and Double photo weirdly reminds me of the elevator scene in Rainman.

  • e jerry powell

    What creeped me out about that photo was that "Mickey Rourke had liposuction" popped in to my mind immediately.

  • toblerone

    Uma Thurman and Zoe Bell...

  • Adam Sandler's stunt double should be Adam Sandler. To increase chances of serious injury.

  • athena23

    Honestly, I came here to post that that photo scares me--it looks like there really are two of them, the implication of which terrifies me.

  • e jerry powell

    No one should be Adam Sandler.

  • KatSings

    Are you sure these are all stunt doubles? A few look like they might be stand-ins, which is a different thing.

  • mograph

    They're probably not stand-ins, as stand-ins don't have to be in costume. They may be body doubles, used for reverse shots at times.

  • Leigh

    I agree. Most look like stand-ins.

  • Blake

    Totally... Clooney's double looks like he needs a walker...

  • Miss Laaw-yuhr

    Adam Sandler's double makes a much prettier woman than Adam Sandler does. I'm sure that brings the stunt double comfort.

  • Drake

    I saw several pigs at the county fair that would make prettier women than Adam Sandler.

  • Carrie/Teabelly

    Is the one in the Salt pic (I think it is) Eunice Huthart from Gladiators? I used to love that show. (UK one). This is one of those fairly pointless comments, given I could go look it up on IMDB...

  • Pants_are_a_must

    Pattinson's stunt double should be Bill Hader.

  • e jerry powell

    No one should be Bill Hader.

  • Pants_are_a_must

    You know, I'm pretty sure the role of Pajiba's Grinch is already taken.

  • Aaron Schulz

    Hey, i have that position locked down thank you very much, now go back to whoville and your roast beast

  • e jerry powell

    And yet, the point stands.

  • ed newman

    Most have a reasonable resemblance, but Beckinsale's double is almost uncanny.

  • DarthBrookes

    Yeah. They just need to get her a better match for the sunglasses... Er... Whichever one the stunt double is.

  • Jill

    Yeah, I actually thought Beckinsale was the woman on the left at first glance.

  • BendinIntheWind

    Paul Rudd's double looks oddly like Cillian Murphy...

  • I was thinking the sexier, gayfacier vampire brother from The Vampire Diaries.

  • Yup, totally thought that was Ian Somerhalder. Didn't even look at the guy sitting on the ground (sorry Paul!).

  • Pentadactyl

    I didn't even see Rudd down there! I breezed past it thinking it WAS Cillian Murphy and his double.

  • cooky

    Second!

  • pajiba

    I thought he looked liked the guy from Sugar Ray.

  • e jerry powell

    Mark McGrath should sue you.

  • I thought he looked like Rob Lowe

  • Maguita NYC

    I thought that WAS Rob Lowe with his stunt double sitting down!!

  • cooky

    i thought it was ian somerhalder...
