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!

Nia,

I am not suggesting that you replace any of the choices with this. But, I thought you might get a chuckle out of this television movie:

The Clone Master
(1978 TV Movie)
In order to test the validity of his experiments on cloning, a scientist makes clones of himself, but it causes problems that he didn't foresee.

Likewise, even though I'm not suggesting you should use this for your poll, I suspect you would enjoy this episode of Red Dwarf (TV Series), Rimmerworld (1993).
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0684176/plotsummary
The Starbug crew returns to the Simulant's battleship to salvage for food-supplies. But Rimmer, who has been diagnosed of a tense nervous disorder, escapes on-board a escape pod which has no steering. And is whisked away through a time-hole, only to find himself on a planet inhabited by clones of his own self.

Thanks!
The Clone Master sounds great - I have a soft spot for 70's TV movies.  :)

The Clone Master is an enjoyable albeit hokey low-budget pilot for a series that was never made. It has all the hallmarks of a 70s TV movie including overwrought theme music and 1970s hairstyles.

We have a poll which includes three or more roles: https://www.imdb.com/poll/VOHIc-32iAc/

Perhaps you could limit your list to dual roles, or make a separate list for television?

FYC:
Mark Ruffalo as Dominick and Thomas Birdsey in I Know This Much Is True (2020– )

Thank you!

Nia,

FYI:
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0056778/trivia

The reason that Patty and Cathy looked exactly alike is that their fathers were identical twins, both played by William Schallert.

William Schallert, who played Martin Lane (Patty's father), also played Kenneth Lane (Cathy's father and Martin's twin brother) during the Christmas episode where Martin was forced to fire Kenneth.

Patty Duke (Patty Lane / Cathy Lane), William Schallert (Martin Lane / Kenneth Lane / Uncle Jed Lane) and Jean Byron (Natalie Lane) are the only actors to appear in all 104 episodes.

The best moment was when Patty played two different versions of her older self and her daughter in daydream sequences.  xD

Is it too late to get the doppelgangers from Us in here?  If it is, I'll consider this post their honorable mention. :)

I am so sorry, the list is full to the max!  
I would add them, though!

Thanks for mentioning them!  ;)
