Val Kilmer transforms into Mark Twain

Val Kilmer directs and acts in ‘Citizen Twain,’ a one-man play he wrote and says is a character study of Mark Twain. Over the course of two hours inside a small dressing room at the Kirk Douglas Theatre, Val Kilmer ages 20 years.

His hair turns a crazy, curly white, a strong mustache sprouts on his upper lip, and deep bags appear under his eyes. Eventually the actor is nearly unrecognizable — instead, he’s Mark Twain and ready for the one-man show “Citizen Twain.”

“There’s a part of the makeup that starts to become the way I understand Mark Twain,” says Kilmer, sitting in the makeup chair. “He’s old in my story … old people are often frustrated because their movement becomes restricted.”
