A year ago, Brian brought you nine pictures of actors playing with the action figure version of themselves. Since then, several more pictures along these lines have emerged, possibly because there are about ninety thousand talk shows now (only eight thousand of which are hosted by Andy Cohen) and handing an actor a ten dollar action figure is a cheap, usually-successful comedy bit.
We’ve compiled a little over thirty photos of actors playing with themselves. (Giggity.) Special thanks to Pajiba, BleedingCool, and especially Actors With Action Figures for many of these.
This is the most normal picture of Nic Cage ever taken.
