The Many Faces Of Stacy Keach

Ard Vijn, Associate Editor, Features
Looking at this week's releases, one actor pops up in the two biggest films: Stacy Keach! He plays Chloë Grace Moretz' avuncular grandfather in If I Stay, and the pinnacle of human corruption in Sin City: A Dame To Kill For.

These two roles immediately point out the actor's all-purpose versatility, easily usable as wither a menacing villain or the coolest family member. And while his filmography is eclectic, including classics and clunkers both, he is never the weak link in them.

Fun fact: despite being born with a severe cleft palate, also known as a "harelip", Stacy Keach grew up (after surgery on the lip and upper-mouth) to become a popular, handsome actor. And though the affliction is often linked with speech impediments, he managed to cultivate a voice pleasant enough to be used in many documentaries and animated films.

So once again I'm going to use eleven close-ups of one of my favorite thespians to make a quiz. Click through the images and guess which movies they're from. No competition, no prizes, just for fun. Try to see how far you get without using IMDb.

I'll post the answers next Thursday (or earlier if someone gets all eleven of them right).
