MUST SEE PHOTOS: Actors revisit one of the roles that made them famous

For Empire Magazine's 20th birthday issue, they got together an impressive handful of actors and photographed them in one of the greatest roles they've ever done. Most of these films are timeless and will be talked about forever.

I've been looking at these photos for the last hour frozen. They are insanely beautiful and the last 26 years of my movie watching life has just resurfaced. Thank you Empire, I'm now in love with you.

Check out every photo after the jump, and click on the image to see the full resolution size. From what I read, the photo of Jack Nicholson is supposed to represent ABOUT SCHMIDT. I don't know about that. Either way, every single one of these photos are kick-ass!

  • john

    I'm 100% certain that's not Ethan Hawke.

    Chase, that is CLEARLY Ethan Hawke reliving his most famous role from CHOPPED & SCREWED: THE STORY OF PAUL BUNYAN

  • Maura

    Haha!

  • Bubba Joe

    It’s Christian Bale though he does look a little like Ethan Hawke with a goatee. The last Schwarzenegger pic is more Dutch from Predator than the Terminator.

    at 60-something Schwartzenegger still looks like a badass!

  • Concerned

    I'm pretty sure the Jack picture is supposed to be a take on the Here's Johnny moment from The Shinning, not About Schmidt…

    the only one of these thats passable is the shaun of the dead one. I thought for sure I would like the unforgiven picture, but this list sucks.

  • Nah

    Pirates of the Carribean, not Atonement, made Keira Knightley famous.
