Johnny Depp was fantastic in "Donnie Brasco," which is just a great movie. It utterly captures the Seventies, and Al Pacino gave one of his best performances in it.


"Some Like It Hot" is one of the greats.


I suppose "Gosford Park" counts as an undercover movie, with the movie actor pretending to be one of the servants.

Well, if we are talking about just spys:


Cary Grant in Charade.

Richard Burton in The Spy Who Came in From the Cold

Lana Turner in Betrayed


If we are including all actors/characters for whom pretending to be someone they're not is critical to the role:



Clark Gable in It Happened One Night



Gary Cooper in Meet John Doe

Rock Hudson in Lover Come Back

Rudolph Valentino in The Eagle



Just ones I could think of off the top of my head. I'm sure I can come up with others, given a chance.
