The Many Faces Of Sir Ben Kingsley

Editor, Europe; Rotterdam, The Netherlands (@ardvark23)
This week, Tarsem's science fiction thriller Self/Less sees a wide release. Starring Ryan Reynolds as a guy trying to find out what's up with his newly grown younger body, the main character is actually a far older guy, played at the start by Sir Ben Kingsley. And while the film itself may not be all that great (read Peter Martin's review), Sir Ben certainly deserves to be the object of this week's quiz.

Judging from his occasional (cough) pay-check cash-ins in truly atrocious films, you might wonder why we'd dedicate a quiz to him at all, except maybe to have some fun heckling him. But Sir Ben Kingsley actually happens to be one of the best actors in the world, and especially when cast against type he shows how truly amazing he is. On occasion I have even used him as an example to describe the impact an actor can have.

So once again I'm going to use fifteen pictures of one of my favourite thespians to make a quiz. Click through the images, and guess which 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 next Thursday, or earlier if someone gets all fifteen of them right.

And here he is in Self/Less as Damian. Is his name a bad omen of things to come?

This picture doesn't count yet for the quiz, but all others do. So please browse through the gallery: click on the edge of the picture to get the next one, and see how many of them all you can identify!
