I had fun writing about Eisenhower yesterday, so today I took a look at which actors played Albert Einstein. Over 63 years, and in multiple countries and languages, there are 109 portrayals of Einstein listed on IMDb. A popular character!
If Arte Johnson isn't odd enough as Einstein, how about Andrea Gall in a movie from 2002 called The Ten Rules: A Lesbian Survival Guide.
One name caught my eye...Yahoo Serious played Einstein in his 1989 movie, Young Einstein. He has a strange name so I looked at his bio on IMDb. The writer says, "Yahoo Serious (born Greg Pead) became one of Australia's most successful independent conceptual artists and filmmakers of the 1980s and 1990s." Pretty serious stuff. Then I looked at his filmography.
Writer, producer, director, actor, editorial dept., music dept.
2000 Mr. Accident
Writer, producer, director, actor, stunts.
For that body of work, he was on a Time magazine cover. I hope it pays the bills. I'll try to be more serious tomorrow.
