Val Kilmer Unrecognizable As Mark Twain

Val Kilmer Unrecognizable As Mark Twain, He’s played the rock god Jim Morrison, Moses, and even Batman, but now Val Kilmer is taking on the diety of authors: Mark Twain, in a one-man play, “Citizen Twain,” which he created. The 52-year-old wrote, directed, and stars in the project.
From the photo of him in full Twain getup, it may be hard to believe that the actor is the usually blond, baby-faced Kilmer.
The show, which will run for two weekends at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery, is all just preparation for a movie that Kilmer is set to do also as Twain, “Mark Twain and Mary Baker Eddy.” The two were historical adversaries: Twain, a social satirist, and Eddy, the founder of Christian science.
The pair never met, but Twain was obsessed with her views, and wrote screeds against her. Kilmer told the Huffington Post that after seven years studying the two, “It’s very much like ‘Amadeus.’ It’s a dual biography. I’m regretting that now, because it’s really hard to do.”
