One Of These Men Played Hamlet Four Times On Broadway


Another gem from Cracked.com.  This time it’s “The 6 Most Depressing IMDB (Internet Movie Database) Pages” and you just knew there’d be some Shakespeare up there, didn’t you?

The man in the picture is Maurice Evans, who was an acclaimed Shakespearean stage actor before he moved on to bigger (?) and better (??) roles like Batman villain, and of course Dr. Zaius.  I still contend that Dr. Zaius is not a bad role.  That original movie is outstanding.

[NSFW warning, the article opens with some pictures of a young lady who spent the better part of her career playing unnamed roles like “shower girl” or “cute naked girl” with accompanying pictures. ]
