Val Kilmer is currently set to play Mark Twain in a movie where he faces off against Christian Science’s Mary Baker Eddy. I’m guessing he’ll use his endless arsenal of quotes to take her down.
Anyway, the actor is really going all out for the role, undergoing a complete physical transformation to play the author. Fortunately, he doesn’t have to magically age 20 years and sprout crazy hair on his own. That’s what special effects are for!
The gallery below is a rare look at the EXACT step by step process that an actor undergoes when transforming into essentially an entirely new person. I highly suggest you browse through the whole thing, and see how he looks at the end.
