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.

There could be so many possibilities, Jason Bateman and Jerry O'Connell, etc...

Jake Gyllenhaal and Tobey Maguire could be cast as identical twin brothers, with Jake as the cute one.

Kelsey Grammar and David Hyde Pierce are probably too obvious.

I always thought the son who sold out his dad in Wall Street was a well cast combo.

Jack Noseworthy and Jon Bon Jovi (Heath Ledger could be another brother)

They were both in U-571, but not as brothers.

I used to think they should cast Lindsay Lohan as Julianne Moore's daughter or something. However, since Lohan's hotness has all but evaporated, I don't know about that anymore.

I thought that the latina chick in Spanglish was Penelope Cruz until the credits ran - they could definitely be twins.

isn't this kind of a "Who's the poor-man's version of so-and-so?" It's like Skeet Ulrich is the poor man's Johnny Depp and so on. Or Gary Busey and Nick Nolte (although the roles have changed slightly)

"Charleze Theron and Ashley Judd"
"Skeet and Depp"

Absolutely agree on both.

I always thought Jon Cryer looked like Oscar Levant. Or, maybe like Oscar Levant's grandson or something.

Hell yeah! Especially in a horror flick!

I thought Balthazar Getty was Liev Schreiber in Ladder 49

And I've been waiting for the day when Josh Hartnett either plays Tommy Lee Jones' son or a younger version of a Tommy Lee Jones character.

Absolutely. The two Homers. (Homer from October Sky and Homer from The Cider House Rules)

I don't see the Ashley Judd, Charlize Theron bit... Maybe a photo comparison to illustrate the point?
