I see Segal and Shatner, but nah, not Plummer.  

But Darg's shot choice of Plummer makes me think some of MICHAEL CALLAN.  But then too, there's some shots of Callan that remind me some of Shatner.  :blink:

Can't see the resemblance of George, Shatner and Plummer

Absolutely to the first comment here, chaya.

(...but can't believe you can't re your second comment)

Yes EPM, Ron Masak would've made a great Lou Costello in a movie.

In fact, I thought he HAD maybe played the comedian in some film or TV show somewhere along the line, but after just now going over his filmography, it appears I only imagined this.

Ron Masak impersonated Lou Costello in a TV commercial for the Ralston breakfast cereal Bran News.

There really isn't a resemblance, just a strong similarity in the photos.

What a Cumber-match! Budding actor, 12, who is a dead ringer for younger version of Benedict Cumberbatch, will play Sherlock star's son in Cold War thriller The Courier 

Budding actor, 12, who is a dead ringer  of Benedict Cumberbatch

Budding actor Keir Hills, 12, from London is playing Benedict Cumberbatch;s son in the Hollywood star's latest Cold War thriller, The Courier, because he is a doppelganger for the Sherlock star. Keir's twin Lewis, who is also an actor, was originally lined up for role, but their mother Marie O'Grady-Hills had better ideas.

I've always thought Eric Portman...

...could have easily been Tallulah Bankhead's...

...brother.

(...and heck, they even sounded alike when they talked)

I know that Buddy Hackett played Costello in a TV movie of him in the 70's (with Harvey Korman as Abbott) but I think Ron Masak does look more like Lou than Hackett did.

Say.....

Maybe there WASN'T a "real" Tallulah Bankhead.   Maybe it was Eric Portman in DRAG!?!  ;)

Or(heh!)  VICE-VERSA!  :D

LOL

Ya know Sepia, I actually thought about goin' in that direction with those two myself, but went with the "brother" aspect instead.

(...however, this DOES kind'a bring up the point that I don't recall ever seein' both of 'em in any movies together, huh) ;)

Yeah, but.....

Maybe too,  they WERE brother and sister, and sometimes(just for kicks) did the "Parent Trap" thing and traded off?   For instance...

Maybe it was brother ERIC who was actually in LIFEBOAT('44)  and Tallulah  in CANTERBURY TALE('44)?  :blink:

Buddy Hackett also subbed for Lou Costello in Fireman, Save My Child. Originally intended for Abbott and Costello, Hackett and Hugh O'Brien (!) "pinch-hit" for Bud 'n Lou who withdrew from the comedy.

When I was younger Bankhead reminded me of an older Bette Davis.

Bette Davis once said that she based her character of Margo Channing in All About Eve on Bankhead.

Maybe Bankhead was Portman in drag?

Just watched HOUSE OF HORRORS '46 on Svengoolie and was struck by how much Virginia Gray reminded me of Drew Barrymore. They both have prominent chins, large arching eyebrows & bow mouths with tiny teeth. Prefer Drew's strong Barrymore nose to Virginia's dainty one.

Remember.... I suggested the reverse possibility.  ;) 

So, if a woman dresses and disguises herself as a man, is it still called "Drag"?  :huh:  I don't recall anyone being famous as a "Male Impersonator".  Although in life I've met many supposed men I thought were.  ;)
