Actors Return to their Most Iconic Roles for Empire’s 20th



I’ve seen some excellent photo galleries in my time, but I think this one takes the cake by a mile. To celebrate their 20th anniversary, UK film mag Empire called in every favor they had to assemble the best actors in the world to come and reprise their most famous roles for a photoshoot that can really only be described as legendary.

I can’t really say any more about this that the pictures can’t say themselves. Check the full gallery out after the jump, and click on any of them to make them bigger.

Mel Gibson in Braveheart


Matt Damon in The Bourne Identity



Christian Bale in American Psycho


Sean Bean and Viggo Mortensen in Lord of the Rings


Tom Cruise in Minority Report


Gerard Butler in 300


Clint Eastwood and Morgan Freeman in Unforgiven



Laurence Fishburne in The Matrix



Keira Knightley and James Macavoy in Atonement



Jack Nicholson in uh, everything


Simon Pegg and Nick Frost in Shaun of the Dead



Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint in Harry Potter



Arnold Schwarzenegger in Terminator




Michael Sheen in The Queen


Kevin Spacey in Se7en


Ben Stiller in Zoolander


Sam Neil in Jurassic Park


Wishlist, because I’m greedy:

Harrison Ford as Indy and/or Han Solo

Sigourney Weaver as Ripley

Russell Crowe as Maximus

All of the James Bonds together

But seriously, an epic project all around.
