Poll Suggestion: There's More Than One of Them...

Sometimes, an actor or actress is just so good, you have to have two or more! of them. In these films and shows, the main character played dual or even triple roles - who do you think did the best job?
List: https://www.imdb.com/list/ls098641685/

Suggestions needed!

Maybe put the more recent version of "The Man in The Iron Mask." 

It starred Leo DiCaprio and IIRC was released in the mid 90s.

Seconded, and embarrassed that I forgot to suggest this.

Brilliant performance by Tatiana Maslany in that show; I am surprised we have not seen much of her since that show ended.

Wait - in the whole wild, wacky, unrealistic show of Dallas, there was never a look alike or an evil twin????  I'm disappointed.

I've never even seen those shows...
I only knew about Friends because I watched the Honest Trailer.  ;)

Friends was a good show... it was a primetime sitcom back when I was around your age, give or take. It's one of very few T.V. shows where the lead actors got $1,000,000+ per episode. (AFAIK the only two other series to have achieved this feat are The Big Bang Theory and Game Of Thrones.)

The shows I mentioned above are nutty soap operas. Days is still running, has been for 55 years. I'm embarrassed to say I watched them from my tweens to mid teens.

I've seen bits of Friends; I don't care for it, actually.  xD
I like Frasier, though.
