Karel Roden and Robert Carlyle. I would love to see both doing something.


Guillermo del Toro, what are you waiting for? Use them!

This came to me watching Lords of Dogtown thinking it was Jake Busey until the credits rolled.
I'll start this with Heath Leger in Lords of Dogtown looking just like Jake Busey, they could be twin brothers in another movie.
It got a fun thread started but these guys don't look alike.




I can't believe no fan boy has posted this yet:


I would not insult the Goddess Natalie by comparing her angelic appearance to that of a stick-figure skank like what's-her-face.

How about Mother..........................................Daughter......................................................... Grandmother

I always think that Edward Burns is Ben Affleck.
But then Edward starts acting and I realize that it's good and can't be Affleck.

I agree with the Sobieski/Hunt one too.

You're right, I didn't.
But people are entitled to their opinions about who looks like who.

I'm constantly getting stopped on the street and being told that I look just like Brad Pitt, but I think those people are wrong.
Spoiler:
I'm much better looking than Brad Pitt

Having an opinion when you haven't see it means your opinion is...

I don't have to see The Lords of Dogtown to judge whether Heath Ledger and Jake Busey look alike because there are these new things called photographs.

In the past, I used to think Richard Dreyfuss and Tom Berenger were good Paul Newman lookalikes.

Except that Heath Ledger doesn't look like he does in that photograph in Lords of Dogtown, which is the point people are trying to make.



And how can you say Jennifer Garner and Emma Watson look the same?

Jennifer Garner and Amy Jo Johnson(aka Pink Ranger) look alike.

So, you're saying that a picture like this one, or the one I previously posted, is not an accurate depiction of what Heath Ledger looks like, and is not a valid basis for comparing his appearance to the appearance of someone else?

See, I thought the thread was about actors that look alike.

But it turns out that it's about that actors that look alike if both of them put on sunglasses, and one of them puts on a wig, and you squint real hard when you look at them.

and Finkpish asked:

I didn't say they looked the same, but I think they look enough alike that they could be cast as sisters, or a "Gilmore Girls"-type mother and daughter.

I think they have similarly shaped faces, and similarly looking eyes and smiles, and they are both pretty... and they can both throw a punch.

Mekhi Phifer could pass for Keith David's son.

You seem to be missing my point. The OP said that Heath Ledger as he appeared in Lords of Dogtown resembled Jake Busey. Yes, in the two photos you posted, they don't look anything alike, but that isn't what Heath Ledger looked like in Lords of Dogtown. I don't know how else to explain this without becoming more condescending.

I don't really want to get into it with you about the other two girls, but you just posted their pictures; you didn't say anything about them looking like sisters or a mother/daughter duo. I personally don't think they look anything alike.

I always thought Jim Carrey and David Schimmer could play sons of Jerry Lewis.

Finkpish, I will address both of your points with an answer that I do not believe can get more condescending:

Read the title of the thread.

You mean they aren't the same person?
