That man was drunk from 1951 until he died.

Nope. It was mostly an act. His J&B onstage was usually apple juice. Dino was an avid golfer and needed to get up early for morning tee times.

RIP Bob Todd, the greatest drunk of them all. Watching every episode of the now banned Benny Hill Show led me to this conclusion.

Or you could just do what Martin Sheen did and get hammered on set and then shoot what happens.

Alan King and Brian Denehy were dressing room drunks. Completely unapologetic about getting faced before every performance.

And years later, was the voice of John Whittaker on Adventures in Odyssey, from Focus on the Family.  That should have turned him into a raging drunk.  It would have me.

Nicolas Cage did. To prep for Leaving Las Vegas, he went on a week-long bender and had his friend videotape him the whole time so he could study his speech and mannerisms when he sobered up. Kind of an alcoholic game film session.

Must've worked. Dude won an Oscar.

True, but they didn't play the role of drunks much. Most of the time, they were playing sober roles, but were just shiatfaced the whole time.

I think this thread is confusing actors who are good at "portraying" drunk people with actors who are actual drunk people.
