That's really good, and a nice idea, but I feel like I owe the guy my life for turning me on to 'Pitch n Putt with Beckett n Joyce.' Holy fuck.

Since when is Graham Chapman's "Protestant Man Bragging About Contraceptive Rights" character from Meaning of Life meant to be explorer David Livingston?
(See set 3.)

I noticed one major omission from the "Einstein" bunch. Plenty of actors have played Albert Einstein, but how many have the acting chops to play him as a Tasmanian apple farmer who split atoms with a chisel and invented Rock & Roll?

At first I read that as Poitier playing both Mandela and De Klerk, which would have made for one heck of a film.

Did he not stop to think there might have been a better place to hyphenate that name?

That's Edgar Allan Poe (though his name could be changed to Allen in some movies, I believe).

Let me just save your time with the presidents and say that nothing beats William Shatner in a powdered wig as John Adams.

I realize these lists aren't meant to be exhaustive but at first glance I see two omissions. Tim Roth as Vincent Van Gogh in Vincent and Theo and Nigel Terry as King Arthur in John Boorman's Excalibur.
