22 Celebrities as 19th Century Generals

General Steve Jobs

Historic generals have always captured our imagination. They have been romaticized, in large part thanks to the uniform, and accompanying decorations. And when it comes to uniforms, the 19th century witnessed some of the most swanky ones.

Today’s celebrities are no less adored, often portraying historic figures, or imitating their appearance. A brilliant artist decided to combine these traits, and photoshop modern celebrities as 19th century generals. Beautifully done. Would have been interesting to see some women here.

General Elijah Wood

Elijah Wood will forever be remembered for his role as Frodo. It is pretty hard to picture him as a general. Then again, he could pull it off, portraying Napoleon, or Alexander perhaps.

General Elvis Presley

The King of Rock and Roll is known for his distinct, flamboyant appearance. So this depiction doesn’t come as a surprise. The hair could pose a problem though.

General Hugh Jackman

Though made famous for portraying Wolverine/Logan, Hugh Jackman is known for a wide range of roles. Looking at him in uniform, the role that immediately comes to mind is that of Leopold in the fantasy romantic comedy Kate & Leopold.

General Ian Mckellen

We know him as Gandalf who isn’t exactly a general. However, Sir Ian Mckellen, as Magneto, did command the Brotherhood of Mutants, against the X-Men. We also remember his chilling performance in a Nazi uniform in Apt Pupil.

Jack’s iconic speech as Colonel Nathan in A Few Good Men is evidence of what a great general he would have been. Befitting indeed.

What did Captain James West do after his Wild Wild West shenanigans? Why he moved to 19th Century Europe to lead an army into battle. A much more respectable role.
