Stunt doubles are the action heroes on screen we don’t even notice, risking their lives to get the perfect shot. Many of them continue to work with specific actors not only because they look so similar to them but because they are so incredible at their jobs! Take David Leitch for example, a mainstay Stunt Choreographer in Hollywood who often doubles for Brad Pitt. They have worked together on “Fight Club,” “Ms. & Mr. Smith” and many more! Leitch has become one stunt person who is almost a household name with that epic “Atomic Blonde” stairwell scene that shot him to stardom.
Even “Wonder Woman” needs a stunt double, a couple of them to be exact, and stunt professionals Alicia Vela Bailey and Caitlin Dechelle worked with Gadot on Patty Jenkins epic Warner Bros film. Tom Hardy has worked with his stunt double for years, his name is Jacob Tomuri and if you haven’t seen him, you’re in for a treat. Margot Robbie and Jennifer Lawrence each have their ladies, Ingrid Kleinig and Renae Moneymaker, both well-known gorgeous stunt professionals. As for Hannah Behan, who was one of three stunt doubles for Alicia Vikander on “Tomb Raider,” is fairly new to the game. Michael B. Jordan and Chadwick Boseman got a great duo of stunt doubles for their roles as Killmonger and T’Challa.
With stunt doubles being needed for almost every movie from “The Avengers: Infinity War” and “Thor,” to “The Rundown,” “The Hunger Games,” “Black Panther,” and “Mad Max: Fury Road,” these brave, adrenaline seeking junkie may just sometimes put the actors to shame!
