Val Kilmer in The Doors
Portraying the character of Jim Morrison is a big responsibility, especially for people who spent their childhood listening to The Doors. That’s why Val Kilmer took his role with utmost seriousness.
Much like Hilary Swank, Michelle Williams and others portraying real characters, Val Kilmer got everyone on set to refer to him as Jim, and he learned no less than 50 of his songs, though only 15 were necessary for the role. That’s what we call method acting at its finest.
