Dual roles

.Van Damme has been cast in "dual roles" in a single film many times during his career.^ Van Damme is 5'9'' max RisingForce says on 6/Feb/09 Actually the interview where he claimed 185 pounds was the same month that the film came out.

^ How many times is the black woman either not mentioned, or portrayed as a prostitute, uneducated, working poor, or single mother?

^ I think that is a scene that occured countless times in Van Dammes and SLY'S real life...
  • Jean Claude Van Damme Height - how tall 6 January 2010 11:54 UTC www.celebheights.com [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

.Most cases involve two distinct characters, but others (such as Timecop) involve the same character from different periods of time-travel.^ Other than that, I dance, hang out and have a few cocktails with friends, and spend time with my family and my two neurotic dogs.

^ It is easy for me, or anyone, in a time of calm reflection to recognize "othering", but doing so at a time when emotions are raw takes a different level of consciousness.

^ What do you do with your time other than MMA? hang out with family and play with my two pit bulls .
  • AUGUST 8th 2008 the FUTURE STARS OF MMA Invade the Orleans Casino! 22 September 2009 21:47 UTC www.tuffnuff.net [Source type: General]

These scenes often necessitate special editing or blue-screen cinematography to have two versions of the actor interacting in the same scene.
Those "dual-role" movies to date are:
  • Double Impact: Van Damme plays twin brothers separated at birth and raised in different countries.
  • Timecop: Van Damme plays two versions of the same character overlapping in space-time continuum.
  • Maximum Risk: Van Damme plays twin brothers separated at birth, one of which was murdered.
  • The Order: Van Damme plays two different characters in different eras.
  • Replicant: Van Damme plays a serial killer and his futuristic clone and mafioso rockstar Repli Gotti.

Background

.
  • The Mortal Kombat fighter character Johnny Cage was modeled after Van Damme.^ I have a magazine with him talking about modelling,he mention's himself at 6'2 and Van Damme would lie about his height to get work.

    ^ See I was sure he was talking about himself being 5'11" AND Van Damme couldnt get modelling work.
    • Jean Claude Van Damme Height - how tall 6 January 2010 11:54 UTC www.celebheights.com [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]
