So it looks like Vanity Fair is back playing in their creative sandbox as they've launched a new set of photos called Comedy's New Legends, featuring some of today's favorite comedic actors and actresses dressed up (and down) to resemble their favorite big-screen legends. There's Seth Rogen as Frida Kahlo, Danny McBride as Jack Nicholson in The Shining, Will Arnett as Han Solo, Russell Brand as Charlie Chaplin, Paul Rudd as Gene Wilder in Young Frankenstein (my personal favorite), and Bill Hader, Anna Faris, Jason Bateman and Leslie Mann as The Honeymooners, among others.
Above you will find the image that kicks off VF's latest series, which is a throwback to another (much sexier) Vanity Fair cover featuring the naked bodies of women like Scarlett Johansson and Keira Knightley. Instead, this time around, we get Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill and Jason Segel in skin-toned body suits. (Thank you Vanity Fair for not allowing them to get naked, because one imagines they totally wanted to go that route.) Check out some of our favorites in the gallery below, and the rest over at Vanity Fair.
