From Lady Gaga to Britney Spears to the king of celebrity impersonators, Elvis Presley, trying to earning a buck by posing as your famous lookalike takes pluck and luck. (Few among us are blessed with Hugh Hefner’s chin.)
“Being around the impersonators is a trip, because you start to feel the eyes peering over, and then at a certain point someone asks them, ‘Are you … ?’ ” says Jason Kovacsev, who directed the film along with Matt Mamula.
“And I’m thinking, ‘What would make you think ‘Hugh Hefner’ would be at this local fried chicken restaurant … alone?’ But they want to believe.”
Just About Famous will be released April 21 on VOD and at justaboutfamous.com.
