    Renée Zellweger as Judy Garland, and 11 other actors who looked exactly like their real-life counterparts

    Hollywood loves to cast illustrious stars as famous historical figures, even though it doesn’t always care if the former necessarily resembles the latter (see, for instance, 2015’s Steve Jobs , in which Michael Fassbender doesn’t look much like the Apple visionary ). That’s most definitely not the case with the upcoming biopic Judy , in which Renée Zellweger will step into the legendary shoes of Judy Garland — a role that, as proven by today’s first photo from the production , will benefit from the fact that Zellweger is nearly indistinguishable from the cinematic icon. Inspired by that stunning snapshot’s debut, we’ve compiled a rundown of the finest instances of actors becoming the spitting image of their real-life artist and politician characters.

According to The Guardian, the latest Shia LaBeouf flick managed a meagre £7 at the UK box office… but it might not be as bad as it sounds. “Signature’s theatrical distribution of Shia LaBeouf war movie Man Down may be fairly termed token – it opened on Friday in just one venue, concurrent with release on digital platforms,” they revealed.

    'Wayne's World' Turns 25: Director Penelope Spheeris on 'Bohemian Rhapsody,' 'Foxy Lady,' and Why Wayne and Garth Still Party On

    In February 1992, when Wayne’s World hit theaters, George Bush was President, Guns N’ Roses was all the rage, and cell phones were as big as shoeboxes. It was a different time. And yet, 25 years later, the comedy starring Saturday Night Live alum Mike Myers and Dana Carvey as two rock-loving, mullet-wearing, basement-dwelling buds still stands up. (Uh, that’s what she said.)

    Mark Hamill has long been a defender of George Lucas’s prequel trilogy, and 18 years after the release of Star Wars: Episode I — The Phantom Menace, he still takes the insults personally. In an interview with Vulture at the Sundance Film Festival, where he was promoting his comedy Brigsby Bear, the man who plays Luke Skywalker said that he still can’t fathom the vitriol directed at the films. In particular, Hamill said, he’s “still angry” about the criticism directed at young Phantom Menace star Jake Lloyd.

    He’s not Gryffindor anymore. But then again, he’s not quite Slytherin either. The wit and wisdom of Ravenclaw, then, that’s where we might find Rupert Grint in this first teaser trailer for the TV (well, streamed) series of ‘Snatch’. Based on Guy Ritchie’s follow-up to ‘Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels’, it centres on a ‘group of 20-something, up-and-coming hustlers who stumble upon a truck load of stolen gold bullion and are suddenly thrust into the high-stakes world of organized crime’. ...

    10 crazy reasons films got sued

    If you went into the 2011 Ryan Gosling film expecting a pedal-to-the-metal action flick, you were probably disappointed, even if the resulting drama was still one of the best movies that year. Investment banker Andrew Greene sued the Scorsese movie for using his likeness in a character called Nicky Koskoff, played by actor P.J. O’Byrne, who’s one of Jordan Belfort’s (Leonardo Di Caprio) greedy, amoral trader posse.
