The Many Faces Of Andy Serkis

This week, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes premieres, starring Andy Serkis in, if the accounts are to be believed, yet another brilliant example of performance capture. By now, he can rightfully be called the world champion of this new artform. He's surely the most famous performance capture artist ever, since he made history as Gollum in the three Lord of the Rings films.

But even without performance capture, Andy Serkis is a pretty awesome actor in his own right, and has had quite some memorable roles using his own face.

So once again, I'm going to use a gallery of eight close-ups of one of my favorite thespians to make a quiz, so click through the images and guess which eight movies they're from. No competition, no prizes, just for fun, try to see how far you get without using IMDb.

And I'll post the answers on Thursday, unless someone names them all correctly...

And here is the man himself, in full motion-capture work attire on the set of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. To be honest, I was tempted to fill this quiz with just pictures of Andy in suits like these, and have you all figure out which Behind-The-Scenes they were taken from.

But in the end I decided against it. So browse through the gallery, and the next eight pictures are all live-action Andy Serkis. Can you recognize them all?
