Judging by the hilarious results, he definitely deserves an Oscar!

We’ve all imagined seeing our name in lights as Hollywood big shots.

But let’s face it, the possibility of total failure after years of trying as well as the cut-throat nature of the entertainment industry isn’t something all of us are cut out for.

Well, one man has found an easier way to make his dreams a reality.

Guy Madjar an aspiring graphic designer from Chicago, Illinois, uses Photoshop to insert himself into the posters of some of Hollywood’s biggest flicks.

And judging by the hilarious results, he definitely deserves an Oscar!

“I’d photoshopped my friend into the La La Land movie poster as a favour and it looked really good. He wanted to replace Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling,” says Guy, who’s included himself in posters from movies such as Hidden Figures, Moonlight and Fences.

But instead of replacing the characters with pictures of himself the intuitive joker opted to simply gate-crash the images.

“I thought it was good, but what if the subject photoshopped into the poster didn't replace any existing character, but was added in and they could change the context of the poster.

“I realised those movie posters are trying to tell a story through an image and by adding one person I could change the story – and I think that's where the comedy comes from."

Guy shared the recreations online and people loved it, which prompted him to continue his works of art.

“The positive response was so overwhelming and I saw how much it was brightening people’s day and how much people thought I looked like Josh Gad. I just knew I wanted to do more,” he says.

“I currently have my next poster set in the works with the theme ‘Movie Classics’. I’m going to work to make these look even more real and again hopefully add a new twist to classic images.”
