There's no shortage of great biopic films coming out of Hollywood, but often times the actor in the biopic movie never gets to meet the real person they're portraying because, you know, they're dead and all. Sometimes, though, biopics are made while a person is still alive and in those glorious instances, the actors get to meet the real person they're playing.
