    "The Mouse that Roared" (Peter Sellers plays 3)

    "Dr.  Strangelove" (Peter Sellers plays 3- but,  was Cast for 4*) 

    "The Wizard of Oz" (Frank Morgan plays 4)

    I think there were 7 playing "James Bond" in Woody Allen's spoof; "Casino Royale". Sort of reverse of your question.

      Schwarzenegger played  2 Arnies in  "The 6th Day"

      In the BTTF movies, Fox , Wilson, Glover,  Lea  Thompson,   and Chris Lloyd  played aged, contemporary,  and  younger versions of their characters.  Fox was seen With Himself  in BTTF.  So was  Lea Thompson in BTTF 2. Twin  Paradox? 

       Fox also played his greatgreat grandfather; Thompson, his  gtgt grandmother.  James Tolkan played a young, an older, and his great grandfather Stricklands.   I think Buford Tanner's gang in BTTF 3 was the same who played  his hood friends in 1955?  Not in BTTF 2 unless just one of them. One  was a chick.

       So did, of course,   Don Fullilove (as  1955 Goldie as well as  made up in posters as Mayor Goldie Wilson)

    Several movies with Eddie Murphy, like The Nutty Professor (1996) and Norbit (2007, although that's not a good movie).

    Michael J. Fox in Back to the Future II plays young Marty of the present, young Marty of the past, old Marty of the future, and his daughter and son from the future.

    In Mary Poppins (1964) Dick Van Dyke plays Bert and Mr. Dawes Sr.

    Mike Myers plays Austin Powers and Dr. Evil in Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery

    In Bicentennial Man (1999) Embeth Davidtz plays Amanda Martin (adult) and Portia Charney.

    Dr. Strangelove or How I Stopped Worrying and Started To Love The Bomb.

    Peter Sellers plays THREE different characters in the film, a mild mannered US President, a British Air Force officer, and a German scientist in a wheelchair.

    A few years before that film was made, Sellers starred in The Mouse That Roared, and also played three different characters in it.
