You saw his critically acclaimed impression of Leonardo DiCaprio opposite Charlie Sheen, Lindsay Lohan & Ashley Tisdale in Scary Movie 5 which opened in theaters worldwide this year...now you can book Ben Cornish for your next Corporate Event, Private Party, Trade Show or TV Commercial.
Ben is what you would call a "Dead Ringer" for Leonardo DiCaprio. He is typically mistaken for Leo multiple times a day and has been ever since Titanic premiered! In addition, as a professional actor based in Hollywood, Ben has trained with top acting and vocal coaches to master Leo's distinctive voice and mannerisms. The sum total is an uncannily accurate impersonation of Hollywood's brightest star!
I planned a surprise for a 300+ person wedding to have Ben come in during my speech and surprise/trick everyone into thinking I got Leo to come give a speech. Everything went so according to plan. Ben stayed out of site and hung around till it was time for the big reveal. And when he came out everyone freaked out and thought it was him! Even the day after the wedding people were texting asking how I got Leo to come. I am beyond happy with the turnout.
Ben was super cooperative and very easy going. He brought ideas to the table to make the surprise more fun/interesting. All good positive vibes. Couldn't ask for a better experience. Thank you thank you thank you!
Ben was so great as Jay Gatsby at our roaring 20s event. His appearance was the hit of the party. He is very comfortable roaming the party, talking to guests and giving a toast. The party was a huge success and Ben had a lot to do with it! His resemblance to Leo had many people doing double takes and everyone wanted a selfie. Highly recommend!!
Ben was a last minute addition to our Oscar themed Awards Banquet and he made the evening. He did a wonderful job of mingling with our guests and posing for photos. He quickly adapted to the culture of our event and his improvisations during the ceremony were spot on! A great investment and highly recommended.
I am always hesitant to book impersonators but Ben certainly made me rethink that. Spot on with both his look, mannerisms and voice. Would defiantly rebook him and recommend him to others.
Ben did an amazing job at our Gatsby themed adult holiday party for our private membership club. We had approximately 3,000 attend the event and Ben did an amazing job. As in the previous post, Ben's demeanor and mannerisms were on target and mesmerized our members. He was nonplussed by the large crowd, all of whom wanted personal photos with Leo. Highly recommend Ben for your event!
My wife is a HUGE Titanic fan, so for her birthday we had a Titanic themed party with Ben providing the star power. He showed up on time, made a surprise entrance in a great costume, and spent the night taking photos and chatting up everyone in character. He looks just like Leo, but it's the mannerisms, smile and demeanor that really sold it for my wife and her friends. We must have taken a hundred "king of the world" pictures that night, so now my wife's screensaver is her with another dude!
Ben was really easy to work with, prompt with all communication, and on time.
The added bonus afterwards was watching him in Scary Movie 5 - he played Leo's character from "Inception" in it, and his part is pretty big. So everyone got to meet a guy who looks like a huge star, but is also the real deal himself in movies too. Great night, highly recommend.
Ben is the spitting image of Leo, and what's more, he's an incredibly talented actor who does an uncanny impression. He's wonderful to work with. Beyond being professional and dependable, people love him when they meet him. His calm demeanor, great sense of humor and groundedness means that he can connect with anyone. I've worked with him many times, and it's always a joy. Whenever I'm around, I'm shocked by the amount of double-takes and requests for photos that he gets from strangers.

Here's what the critics have to say about Ben's impression of Leonardo DiCaprio in Scary Movie 5:
"The guy playing the DiCaprio part (Ben Cornish) actually does a pretty terrific Leo impression. I would watch an entire movie of this guy playing Leonardo DiCaprio."
--The Huffington Post, Mike Ryan
"A damn good Leo DiCaprio imitation"
-- The New York Daily News, Joe Neumaier
"Double-take alert! Whoever did casting on this movie deserves an award for finding Leonardo DiCaprio's doppelgnger. During a scene inspired by Inception, actor Ben Cornish walks in and for a second we thought, "Wow, Leo made a cameo!" But, he didn't. It's OK, though, because Ben's the bee's knees."
-- E! Online, Bruna Nessif
