Cloud Atlas Actors as Different Characters

Cloud Atlas' Many Faces: See Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, and More as Different Races and Genders

Now that Cloud Atlas is in theaters, the world can finally check out the film based on the epic novel by David Mitchell. The film covers six different stories over the course of time and space, but the same core group of actors show up from one tale to the next — and not exactly in their most recognizable forms. Thanks to the magic of (a lot of) makeup, the actors transcend race, gender, and age to take on different guises and personalities. I've broken down each actor by the multiple characters they play in the film. Check it out.
