View Full Version : 2 roles, 1 person: Fan Theory Contest

2016-01-21, 05:53 PM
Okay, the idea here is you take two characters from different movies who were played by the same actor, and come up with a fan theory that explains that they are the same person. A good one I've heard is that the Indiana Jones movies were hallucinations that Han Solo had while frozen in carbonite, so that's where the bar is currently set. Go nuts! Don't do obvious ones (Hugh Grant could be literally Hugh Grant in every one of his movies) or sequels. Pick one that's hard to connect. Easy on the time-travel, too. The more well-known, the better. Reply with your theory.

Hmmmm... Star-Lord, Emmet (Emmett?) and what's-his-face from Jurassic World are alter egos of Andy from Parks and Recreation, and their movies happen in his imagination.

Toby Maguire lives the high life as Gatsby's neighbor. Alas, the market crashes and he is forced to find work as a jockey for Seabiscuit, at least until that radioactive spider that escaped from Los Alamos bites him in the barn...

Richard Sharpe, of His Majesty's 95th Rifles, has continually recurring nightmares of death. Whether by decapitation, or being shot by arrows, or being chased over a cliff, or having his throat cut, or being impaled on a boat anchor and blown up, being thrown from an antenna (which subsequently blows up and crashes on him), hung, drawn and quartered, or just shot.

Bill and Ted's excellent adventure is all a hallucination of Ted's as he tries to deal with being the only one to see angels and demons, later leading him to attempt suicide. The machines can't make The One's time in the matrix easy after all.

Or if you want a sillier route, Bill and Ted's excellent adventure is actually his 2 minutes in hell in Constantine.

Eddie Murphy was working in his lab one night when he finally managed to create the perfect potion that would turn him into an incredibly charming African prince. But it had the unintentional side effect of turning him into a wisecracking Detroit cop every full moon.

Anyone got a Human Torch/Captain America theory?

A lot of these made me laugh. Good job guys!

Anyone got a Human Torch/Captain America theory?

Well, if you insist...

WWII had ended and the Storm house was the place where all the kids wanted to play. Sometimes they played Lone Ranger, sometimes Flash Gordon. But Johnny Storm's favorite game was superheroes and he always called that he was Captain America. He often daydreamed at school, imagining himself as Cap, fighting Nazis, punching Hitler, and capturing the Red Skull, just like in the comics.

Sue, being older and mature, had no dreams of being a superhero. Her daydreams were of snorkeling off the Bahamas, swimming with rays, and searching for pirate gold among the wrecks...

He also made a lot of mistakes in parenting, changed his name a third time and screwed up a few other important life choices , at least he got to own a private death star, so that's all good, right? I know his brother would be proud. :smalltongue:

The future is not set. The war with the machines is different from what his mother described to him. John Connor doesn't know if he can win this war.

But he need's to do the best he can. He need's to be more than just a soldier for the resistance, because as a man, he can be defeated, he could be killed, but as a symbol? As a symbol, he coud indestructible, he could be ever lasting...

And so, when conducting a perimeter sweep of a resistance stronghold, he comes across a stack of comic books that somehow survived the apocalypse. On their cover is a figure, scrawled in a black cape against a ruined city scape, and he realizes what he has to be.

"Yes mother. I shall become a bat."

Forrest Gump was a running fool; everybody said so. And his running helped Alabama win football game after game. At least until the Auburn game, when on a kick off, a vicious hit knocked him unconscious.

"Gump!" called out a worried Coach Bryant. "You ok Gump?"

After what seemed like an eternity, Forrest opened his eyes, and looked up into his worried coaches face. "Yassir, I'm fine. But I saw so many stars that I thought for a minute I was an astronaut circlin' tha moon."

I guess I better get in on it too...

The Voice of the One True God has sometimes been... delayed when delivering his messages. The longer he spends on Earth, the more the Metatron loses his memories of his heavenly nature.

Sometimes he teaches at a Wizard's school, while not realizing that his magic is actually angelic powers, which is why he is so adept at Defense Against the Dark Arts.

Sometimes he commits robberies while pretending to be a terrorist and shooting at John McClane. Dying sends him back to Heaven, and restores his memories.

As atonement for his crimes as Hans Gruber, he was sent across the galaxy and trapped in the chassis of a depressed robot.

(RIP Alan Rickman) Metatron, Severus Snape, Hans Gruber, Marvin the Paranoid Android.
