5 Times Actors Became Unrecognizable In their Roles

The beauty of acting is for actors to become fully immersed in their characters. Colin Farrell’s portrayal of Oswald Cobblepot/The Penguin in The Batman, and Jared Leto as Paolo Gucci in Ridley Scott’s House of Gucci, are recent cases of incredible transformations in which the actors disappear in their roles. Of course, many performers rely on makeup and prosthetics in order to truly capture the look of a character, whether it’s a comic book hero or villain, a real-life figure, an original creation, or a character adapted from literature.
