Whether it’s an actual performance by one actor that inspires the work of another, or simply the iconic look of one character that informs the look of another, I’d like to see how many inspirations you guys can find. I have two:
Meryl Streep’s look in “Silkwood” was inspired by Jane Fonda’s in “Klute,” per Streep’s own admission:
Jessica Chastain in “The Help” seems just a tadbit inspired by Jessica Lange in “Blue Sky”:
Can you think of any other inspirations?
The resemblance between Lange and Chastain in those two roles are uncanny!
Regarding Chastain, she seemed fashioned after Marilyn Monroe.
