What do actors and the actual criminals they’ve portrayed have in common?

The casting department for the hit TV show Mindhunter deserves a standing ovation. Seriously, they somehow managed to find actors who not only portrayed the characters but also looked strikingly similar to the real-life criminals they played. It’s mind-boggling!

And let me tell you, the resemblance is uncanny. From their facial features to their expressions, it’s almost as if they were long-lost twins.

One striking example is the portrayal of the infamous Charles Manson by actor Damon Herriman. The two photos side by side are downright unnerving. Herriman not only captured the eerie demeanor but also nailed the physical resemblance to Manson. It’s like the casting gods waved their magic wand and said, “Hey, let’s bring these two together.”

Another jaw-dropping example is Cameron Britton’s portrayal of serial killer Ed Kemper. The real-life Kemper’s features are hauntingly similar to Britton’s portrayal on the show. It’s almost as if they cloned this man to bring the character to life. Talk about getting under your skin!

The article features other actors who flawlessly embodied their criminal counterparts. Jonathan Groff as FBI agent Holden Ford, Holt McCallany as FBI agent Bill Tench, and Anna Torv as psychologist Wendy Carr all deliver stellar performances. But what truly sets them apart is their uncanny resemblance to the real-life individuals they portray.

It’s not just about the physical resemblance, though. The actors in Mindhunter truly captured the essence of these criminals. The way they moved, spoke, and conveyed their emotions felt so real. You would think they spent their entire lives studying these notorious figures.

But credit shouldn’t just go to the actors. The casting department deserves a huge round of applause. Finding actors who could not only portray these characters but also look like them takes an exceptional talent. It’s like finding a needle in a haystack, but they managed to do it 19 times over.

Whether it’s the wide-eyed glare of the BTK Killer or the chilling charisma of David Berkowitz, the actors in Mindhunter transformed into these criminals seamlessly. It’s a testament to the dedication of both the actors and the casting department.

If you haven’t already, I highly recommend checking out the article left on the gossip toilet. These side-by-side photos will leave you astonished. It’s like witnessing a bizarre doppelganger convention, but instead of harmless look-alikes, they are the most notorious criminals in history.

So hats off to the casting department for Mindhunter. They went above and beyond to find actors who would not only portray these criminals but also channel their very essence. It’s a match made in casting heaven.
