Richard III is practically a rock star these days, what with the discovery of his skeleton and recreation of his visage. So that got me thinking, could I even tell Richard III apart from a rock star? Since “Dracula or David Bowie?” turned out so well, I decided to give it a go. For each image, guess if the image is a depiction of Richard III (in a movie or play) or if it is a rock star.
Who is rocking the page boy? Richard III or a rockstar?
That’s not Richard III, it’s Davy Jones from the Monkees!
How about this guy? Rock star or King of England?
Psych out! He may look like a rocker, but he’s an evil, murderous monarch! (I promise, this is Richard III from a 2012 production at the Globe).
How about this guy?
Alright, I think that one was too easy. It’s Kevin Spacey as Richard III. But those sunglasses make him LOOK like a rock star!
Here’s a very regal looking personage – King of England or King of ROCK?
His band may have a regal name, but that’s no Richard – it’s the great Freddie Mercury looking fantastic.
I think the keyboard throne gives this one away. It’s Elton John!
Oh, snap! Elton John again. I could probably do this whole post just with pictures of Elton John.
Ok, you can do this. Just a few more. Who is this, Richard or rock star?
Despite the anachronistic remote control scepter, it’s Richard III again!
Ok, last one. Who is this?
Thanks for playing!
