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.

Noah Dietrich

In The Aviator, Noah Dietrich (John C. Reilly) is Howard Hughes‘ chief executive officer for his business empire. He served Hughes from 1925 to 1957, before they had a falling out over Dietrich’s capital gains income. Though the portrayal is accurate in terms of style, personality, and mannerisms, one criticism is that the film downplayed his role in Hughes’ success.

Dewey Cox

In Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story, Dewey Cox (John C. Reilly) distills the essence of the country musician, parodying the likes of Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, and Elvis Presley all in one go. His rags-to-riches story starts as a poor smell-blind kid who rises to become a musical phenomenon.

Wreck-It Ralph

Wreck-It Ralph plays villain to Fix-It Felix, tearing down his buildings, but yearns to be the hero. He jumps from video game to video game, looking for a chance to win a medal and earn the trust of the other arcade characters.
