President James Dale from Mars Attacks!

Jame Dale (played by Jack Nicholson) is the ill-fated President of the United States when aliens invade Earth in the sci-fi comedy Mars Attacks!  President Dale believes the Martians to be rational and seeks to make first contact in a bid for peace, a plan which quickly goes awry.  President Dale dresses as most Presidents–in dark suits.  He wears several different ties throughout the movie, but you can’t go wrong with something vaguely patriotic or merely striped.  If you don’t quite have his distinguished hairline, an old man wig can do the trick.  Less noticeable than his widow’s peak, President Dale sports a wedding band, gold watch, and a signet ring.

Joker (1989)

In 1989’s Batman, Joker (Jack Nicholson) becomes the Joker as we know him after mobster Carl Grissom sets up his second-in-command to be killed in a vat of chemicals. It doesn’t finish him off, but leaves him depraved and disfigured, with a maniacal laugh and deadly vendetta. Nicholson’s is a classic look that’s since been re-interpreted by Heath Ledger and Jared Leto.

Joker

What do you get when you cross intelligence, homicidal tendencies, a penchant for “gags”, and an obsession with Batman? The Joker (Heath Ledger) of course. While his look may have changed through the years, his love of the color purple and mayhem stays the same in the Dark Knight.

Jack Torrance

In The Shining, Jack Torrance is looking forward to a quiet winter as the off-season caretaker of the Overlook Hotel, allowing him to focus on his writing and to spend some quality time with his family. That is until he becomes influenced by supernatural powers. Heeeeere’s Johnny!
