Sometimes the actors appear on the screen in the form of roles that are so similar to their real life that they practically do not need to try to get close and understand the character, and the directors. With this awareness, they approach the role with the life of the actor. The result of such a decision will be that the character will come to life in such a way that no other actor can be imagined in his form. This list includes 10 films in which the actors have acted in roles similar to their real lives.
There are many actors in the history of cinema who try to integrate with the role; actors like followers of the Methodist school who, like Daniel DeLouis, try to think and act like characters in life. The result of their presence on the screen is brilliant, but sometimes it is not necessary to achieve a brilliant result. It is at this point that the act of choosing an actor becomes important. Sometimes, if the director is right, he will find actors who do not need to knock on every door to get the right role; Because that role is similar to theirs.
In such a situation, the character on the paper will sit on the actor's body like a garment sewn exactly for a certain person, and he will continue to shine on the screen as the audience Can not imagine a better game than that actor. Of course, this type of actor selection has another advantage; Because the warmth it gives to the story is like defining the warmth of a personal story, with the same amount of intimacy and the same amount of honesty. So the audience easily communicates with what they see and finally leaves the cinema with satisfaction.

The casting of Bradman's film is unique because the film's story seems to be based on the personal life of Michael Keaton. He once played the role of Batman and was at the height of his fame. At that time, in the 1980s and early nineties, this fame had made him sit at the Top and his image could be seen everywhere. Until years later, his fortune star declined and he became an actor who was sometimes seen in roles here and there.

Easy Rider with Bonnie and Clyde, directed by Arthur Penn, and The Graduate, directed by Mike Nichols, marks the beginning of an era that divided the history of cinema into before and after, and a new world. New created in American cinema. The era when American cinema peeled off and was influenced by European art cinema, as well as the various events that took place in this country over the past decade, and these events slowly opened the way to the text of cinema and showed a different image of American society. Easy Rider is a tradition-breaking work in all its aspects; Whether in the production stage, in execution or in terms of content. This apparent contradiction between escaping past structures and free thought with traditionalism and living the old-fashioned way has been Dennis Hopper's starting point in designing and making Easy Rider's own film. And it was in the seventies that he became interested in the life of hippies and introduced the same themes in the story of his film and praised it. In this way, people with similar thoughts were with him; People like Jack Nicholson and Peter Fonda. Peter Fonda's lifestyle is very similar to the one portrayed in the film; Peter Fonda lived a free life in the 1960s and, in addition to using drugs, traveled with symbols of the New World, such as members of the Beatles.
Come on, we're having fun, but watching a movie that immediately shows a part of the time spent depicting that time in great detail is another pleasure. Easy Rider is such a film, and watching it can be as effective as reading a history book to understand a moment in time and lifestyle in America in the late 1960s.
Peter Fonda is the son of Henry Fonda, a legendary and great star in the history of cinema. His father was one of the symbols of the old cinema and one of the men who kept the order of the past. But his son distanced himself from that lifestyle, and even during his career he made a film like The Hired Hand, which was a tradition-breaking Western, and his protagonist had an astronomical distance from what his father presented in the cinema. In such a context, his role in Easy Rider was not in the role of a fictional character and penetrating into it and discovering its unique features, but in fact it was a continuation of the same daily life in front of Dennis Hopper's camera.
