Does Ryan Renolds look like Jason Lee to anyone else???

I just saw Amityville Horror remake last night, and through the whole movie I was fairly sure that George Lutz was played by Jason Lee (Mallrats), however I find out now (didn't stay for the credits), that it was really Ryan Reynolds. Am I crazy or do these 2 actors look and sound very similiar? (maybe they are twins seperated at birth) Anybody else have this same problem?

there's been a couple of threads about this. One in other and another in here a while back when blade came out. The general idea is that yeah, he and jason lee look and sound and act the same way.

While there's a slight similarity, it's nowhere near enough for a person to mistake Ryan Reynolds for Jason Lee.

Unless, of course, you've got some sort of vision problem, in which case I can understand...

I do think they are very similar. Everytine one of them is in a new movie I have to do a doubletake or double check the credits during the preview.

Ah! Help me! It's like I'm seeing doubles!!!

(I will agree, there is a similarity there. However, not so much so that someone should mistaken one for the other for an entire movie, or need to double-take.)

There's even more of a similarity in person than there is on the screen.

I've never thought about this until I read this thread. They do resemble each other but not enough to get them mixed up. Well atleast for me.

Jason Lee is a skinny white guy. Ryan Reynolds has the physique of a men's health cover model.

I guess I'm familiar with both actors enough to not get them confused. I never thought of the similarities, although I think they're minimal, and now I can kind of see it.

Jason Lee is also considerably hairier. (Think I saw a movie with Lee without his top on, and...damn, he's got a chia pet on his chest.)

While my friend and I were watching The Incredibles, he kept saying that the voice of the villan sounded familiar. Then he swore, 100 percent, that it was the guy from Blade 3. He kept saying this and even bet us money. My other friend then said it sounded more like Jason Lee. We waited until the end to see the credits and of course it was Jason Lee and my friend said he got confused. I never thought of any similarities between the two before, but I can understand how it can happen.

I see no resemblence between the two at all . I would not mistake them as being related or any of that sort. Just two different individuals. Ryan look so much like a young Burt Reynolds, especially his eyes, that they could be father and son. At the beginning, I thought they were, but their not related.

Ryan Reynolds completely apes a lot of Jason Lee's mannerisms.

When I watched Blade: Trinity a few weeks back, that was the first thing I thought when RR was introduced. I actually had to consult the box to check the credits and confirm it wasn't JL. Their voice inflections do have a lot of similarity.

Jason Lee started emerging with his style in Mallrats and Chasing Amy (95 and 97), while Ryan Reynolds started emergin with his style in Two Guys, A Girl, and A Pizza Place (98).

Yes they have similar timing....but to say one is copying the other when they were pretty much breaking through at the same time? A bit of a stretch.

As for Lee's nose...its a pretty angular schnooz...its just more noticeable at certain angles.

I don't see it at all. They look about as similar as Arnold Schwarzenegger and Chris Farley to me.
