Be sure to check out this year’s Hollywood issue of the New York Times Magazine this weekend. Some of the year’s biggest stars try out some iconic roles in a series of photographs and short films. Brad Pitt is Eraserhead. Rooney Mara of “Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” is Alex in “Clockwork Orange.” “The Help’s” Viola Davis is a ladybug-infested Nurse Ratched from “One Flew Over a Cuckoo’s Nest.” And George Clooney is almost unrecognizable as Captain Bligh from “Mutiny on the Bounty.” Some of the other performers appear as archetypes rather than specific characters — the siren, the homewrecker, the hothead. Clearly, they were all having a blast.
