Was about time this showed up. Anybody care to correct it? --The Singularity 14:15, 12 October 2005 (UTC)

I had been hoping someone would help me edit this and some have, but missed the references (as have I first time around). After seeing the WikiWorld cartoon I figured the article needs to be cleaned up. I did what I could and added some references. Hope this helps. I've also tentatively removed the No Reference notice. --The Singularity 23:39, 17 June 2007 (UTC)

I think when Bela Lugosi died before Plan 9 From Outer Space was finished, they fake-Shemped him. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:28, 19 August 2008 (UTC)
Definitely. Tom Mason standing in for the deceased Lugosi is one of the most notable Fake Shemp occurrences ever, and fits in exactly with the original definition. It should definitely be mentioned. Details are on the wikipedia entry for that movie. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:11, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

Why is this flagged for deletion? I don't see any applicable reason. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Ftg3plus4 (talkcontribs) 22 September 2009

So, in the recent Star Wars film "Rogue One", isn't Moff Tarkin played by a fake Shemp (live actor plus CGI of Peter Cushing, who played Tarkin in the original film). What about the final scene with Princess Leia (stand in actor filmed from the back, and (badly) CGI'd young Carrie Fisher's face when she turns around). Seems to me perfect examples of fake Shemp that would be familiar to those who might not be as familiar with some of the older works mentions. (talk) 16:16, 10 April 2017 (UTC)

References needed[edit]

This article needs references to reliable sources to show that this is actually a notable term. As it is, most of the references are to other Wikipedia pages, which are not considered reliable; nor is Urban Dictionary or an IMDB credits page. As it is, the article is basically original research - if better references can't be found, it should be re-nominated for deletion. Robofish (talk) 15:53, 4 February 2010 (UTC)

Are you sure about this? I was under the impression that it was Emile Sitka who most often played "the back of Shemp's head" in most of the Fake Shemp films. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 04:44, 23 September 2013 (UTC)
