Name legendary climbers/mountaineers and match them up with suitable actors/actresses. Who would do a good job playing the role.

Slightly off topic.

I met an Austrian climber in Kalymnos a few years ago who I at first thought was the American actor Geoffrey Lewis (Every Which Way But Loose) but turned out to be Heinz Zak.  They looked so alike it was uncanny. If you look the two guys up you will see what I mean.

The thing that turned out be really spooky was that I was asking my daughter back home to look up the actor  in Every Which Way but Loose to get his name and it turned out that he had died the previous day.

Although a legend in my own mind only, I do have a stunt double ready for the biopic
