Amos Hart

Amos Hart

Amos Hart is the loyal but dimwitted husband of Roxie Hart in the musical, Chicago. Portrayed by John C. Reilly in the film adaptation, his major musical number, "Mr. Cellophane," is modeled after vaudeville tramp-clowns, reflecting his put-upon place in the story line. Vaudeville clown suits are difficult to find in black, so to replicate his tattered look, distress an oversized suit or pants and jacket, tie a large, silk scarf into a bow, and use light clown makeup.
