68. Scrooge, Ebenezer Scrooge.

In researching how many actors have played Scrooge, I was blown away....although none are as good as Alastair Sim if you ask me.

From Wikipedia:

Scrooge has been portrayed by:

Tom Ricketts in 1908
Marc McDermott in 1910
Seymour Hicks in 1913 and again in 1935
Rupert Julian in 1916
Russell Thorndike in 1923
Lionel Barrymore on radio throughout the 1930s and 1940s
John Barrymore on radio, for ailing brother Lionel 1930s
Orson Welles in 1939 on radio replacing Lionel Barrymore for one appearance only.
Reginald Owen in 1938
John Carradine in 1947
Malcolm Keen in 1947
Taylor Holmes in 1949
Bransby Williams in 1950
Alastair Sim in 1951, and again in 1971 (voice)
Fredric March in 1954
Basil Rathbone in 1956 and 1958
Stan Freberg in Green Chri$tma$, 1958. "Mr Scrooge" is portrayed as an advertising executive "...trying to find new ways of tying their product into Christmas." The satirical skit was so sarcastic that sponsors threatened to pull their ads from any radio station that dared play it. As a result, the skit received very little airplay until 1983, and still doesn't get much.
