Have you watched The Rise of the Planet of the Apes and the Dawn of the Planet of the Apes? What do you think of Caesar? Maybe you've also witnessed the 2005 version of King Kong. And who could've missed out on the trilogy of our time: the Lord of the Rings. But is there even a similarity to be found among these movies? Yes, they are all fiction, but what else? Is there something about the characters in these films that share the same thing? How about share the same actor? Check out the story below.

Andy Serkis served as the iconic massive creature in the 2005 remake of King Kong. Not only did he provide the movements, he also did the voice of King Kong. Oh, he also acted as the ship's cook.
This is perhaps his most famous character: Gollum from the Lord of the Rings trilogy and The Hobbit trilogy. So, he's Mr. Smeagol, more so in fact because the fundamental facial features of Gollum are based on Serkis' expression. That's dedication!
Andy Serkis also made a memoir titled Gollum: How We Made Movie Magic that talked about his experience as being the great iconic and weird character in the Lord of the Rings franchise.
