Hollywood is so into biopics, it’s a wonder there’s anyone left to make a biopic about. There’s a built-in appeal to watching a famous person play another famous person ― it’s fame squared!
Of course, the quality of a biopic depends on a lot of factors. Currently in theaters, we can see one of the most esteemed actors of all time, Daniel Day-Lewis, playing history’s most beloved president, Abraham Lincoln ― a role for which he very well may win an Oscar. Then again, there’s also Lindsay Lohan as Elizabeth Taylor in Liz & Dick, a role that was… um, less acclaimed.
