Stephen Fry is probably one of the most interesting personalities in the entertainment realm being that he appears to be a seeker of truth. He’s starred in fictional-based television shows and movies all the while participating in documentary style travel and nature shows and even autobiographical pieces. Fry still currently works on the series, Last Chance To See, a show where Fry and his zoologist partner scour the world in search of nearly extinct animal life and even played his doppelganger in the 1997 film, Wilde.Oscar Wilde was an Irish playwright and poet who became extremely popular for his flamboyant dress, unwavering wit, and inspiring conversational skills and wrote historical novels/plays such as The Importance of Being Earnest, Salome, The Picture of Dorian Gray. Unfortunately, he died poor and alone after going to jail for two years for gross indecency with men, his final work, The Ballad of Reading Gaol detailed his grim experience in jail. Both Stephen Fry and Oscar Wilde are two treasured public figures never to be forgotten.
Maggie Gyllenhaal of the Gyllenhaal clan seems to be one of the more eclectic members of the family as her choice of films seems to take on more artistic feels. For instance her participation in cult classic Donnie Darko, a movie that’s on its way to being a classic in The Dark Knight, the 2002 film Secretary, Crazy Heart, and her latest project in the Sundance film, The Kindergarten Teacher. Not to mention she plays one hell of a prostitute in HBO’s The Deuce which might have actually gone over well with her look-a-like in American Libertarian movement co-founder, Rose Wilder Lane.Lane is known for her series of writing which includes her notable work entitled, The Discovery of Freedom. Lane also once wrote for African-American newspaper, The Pittsburgh Courier, and advocated for both anti-racism and laissez-faire from 1942-45. Rose Wilder Lane later passed away in her sleep at the age of 81-years-old. Honestly, Maggie should be honored to resemble such a beautiful soul and hardworking woman like Rose Wilder Lane.
Sacha Baron Cohen
Sacha Baron Cohen was one of the most controversial entertainment personalities of the early 2000s. Cohen’s satirical take on society caused an uproar from certain communities especially when it came to his HBO television show, Da Ali G Show, in which he played three separate characters including the streetwise poser, Ali G, the Kazakh journalist, Borat Sagdiyev, and gay Austrian fashion enthusiast, Bruno Gehard. Eventually, all three characters starred in their own major motion pictures which became wildly popular all the while still remaining extremely controversial. Despite the controversy, Cohen still landed roles in the children’s Madagascar movie series.Sacha’s Borat character shares a lot of visual similarities to Soviet Russian communist dictator, Joseph Stalin, who ultimately was responsible for hundreds of thousands of executions and millions of deaths due to famine in order to eradicate enemies of the working class. It could be a coincidence but, with a mind like Sacha Baron Cohen, we have a feeling this was done intentionally.
