If you haven’t seen Mary Poppins in a long time, fix that. However, if you haven’t seen Mary Poppins in a long time, you may have forgotten, or not even realized, that Dick Van Dyke actually plays two roles in the film. He plays the jack-of-all-trades, Bert, of course. However, he also plays a small role as Mr. Dawes Sr. the chairman of the bank where Jane and Michael’s father works. It’s a small role that only has a couple of scenes and Van Dyke is covered in false hair and makeup to make him appear incredibly old. According to Disney’s announcement this morning, Van Dyke will be playing Mr. Dawes Jr., the chairman of Fidelity Fiduciary Bank. He’ll be playing his own son.
