If mark has already asked this one, I apologize, but I just came across it:

What 4 Actors are the only thesps to be nominated for playing the same character in 2 different films?

I haven't asked it before, but I have conceived of the same question, but I thought there only were two.  Now I have more thinking to do.

hint: in 3 cases the second film of the pair is a sequel. But in the other case the films are unrelated.

Just going to take a couple of wild swings at it here and say Harrison Ford and Anthony Hopkins are two of 'em.
Let's get right to it.

Harrison Ford only has one nom, which was for Witness.

One of these should be obvious, we heard a clip from him yesterday.  The other actor I know got his noms for two movies over 20 years apart & he actually won the second time around (unlike the first guy).  Also, both of them have precisely one win & in each case it was widely held to be a 'make-up' after earlier, greater achievements had gone unrewarded.

The idea that there are four such individuals still stumps me.

I can tell you've got the first 2, keep thinkin' about the others  -- If I hadn't seen this elsewhere, I'd've never gotten them either.

OK, your mention of the films being 20 years apart tipped me on one of them. Fast Eddie, yes? Otherwise, I'm clueless--but what else is new?

Yes.  The other is often impersonated by Little Steven (big hint).

Okay, I stumbled across another after looking through Oscar.com, ironically my folks and I were just talking about him while driving past the house in Burlingame where I was born, as he used to live about a mile from there up in Hillborough.

The non-sequel one still has me stumped, was it for a historical figure?

So, last call for anyone to make a guess or two before I give it away.
