British acting chameleon Michael Sheen is in theaters this week in two films, Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris and Beautiful Boy, about a married couple whose lives are leveled when they learn their 18-year-old son committed a mass shooting at his college. (He also recently voiced the role of House in “The Doctor’s Wife” episode of “Doctor Who.”) Though those roles are in smaller films, Sheen is gaining more recognition over in the United States, where he broke through in 2008 with Ron Howard’s Frost/Nixon, which he followed up with his third Underworld film, Rise of the Lycans. He might have been given more credit for the range he showed between those two roles, but few at the time probably realized it was the same person. During his career, Sheen has played Tony Blair three times; has played a werewolf in Underworld; a vampire in the Twilight series; and there were rumors (since disproven) that he was even in contention to play baddie Blofeld in the next James Bond film.
But with the exception of the Tony Blair roles, Sheen never seems to look alike in any of his movies. It’s almost hard to recognize him and, at times, possible to mistake someone else for one of the varied Michael Sheen roles. How true is that? Let’s test it: Here are 15 photos. Twelve are of Michael Sheen. Three are not. Can you identify the three who are not Michael Sheen?
