I used to confused them too when I was younger. My girlfriend went through the same process of confusing Deniro and Pacino. I guess its because they both rule!

Great choice, Josh Duhamel and Timothy Olyphant look a lot alike and could be brothers. Timothy's quietly insidious slightly scary vibe is the main difference in the two.

Re: Actors/Actresses you always get confused?

For some reason, when I was younger, I always throught that Serpico was Stallone (the Nighthawks one, not the Rocky one). Don't know why. They did have the same hair-thing goin on. But I just thought that's how it was. Finally watched Serpico when it first came out on DVD and realized it was Pacino.

Other than that, I got nothin'.

I thought of going over to pay her a compliment, but they were finishing up and she got into a car before I could say anything. I was just standing there a few feet away, but I was all dressed up thanks to a business meeting earlier and she looked over at me and gave me a nice look before she got in the car. Mr. Big, indeed.)

BTW, this is the most entertaining thread on this board since the Titanic/Murdoch one.

I used to get Ed Harris and Peter Weller mixed up. Same with Emilio Estevez and Michael J. Fox.

More recently, Elizabeth Banks and Rachel McAdams.

As a kid...YES. Now not so much but as kid. I think I thought Ed Harris was Robocop.

How do you confuse that nerdy guy from the Scream movies with that asshole from Wedding Crashers?

I mean I can understand the resemblance but they're from 2 different universes.

Besides quite a few of ones already mentioned.....
When I was younger Bruce Willis & Nic Cage.
Now I sometimes confuse Timothy Olyphant and Mark Ruffalo.

Kevin Pollak & Richard Jeni



Spoiler:
of course, it's easier to distinguish them now since Jeni passed away.

I don't know what it is, but I do. There are many others that I will get to remembering...
Not even close.
What I learned form this topic is that many people on dvdtalk are blind.
But I must add that Mike Fox and Eric Stoltz look a little alike, and Stoltz was filming Back t the Future until Fox replaced him.

Sometime during the mid-90's, I realized that Donald Moffat and Lloyd Bridges were not the same guy.

Re: Actors/Actresses you always get confused?

It took me years to get Kevin Pollak and Kevin Spacey straight. To this day, I have to look up THE REF in Maltin to figure out which one is in that film. To make matters worse, they're both in USUAL SUSPECTS.

Re: Actors/Actresses you always get confused?

You sure it's not the names reversed? Looks like ZD on the right.

My goal in life is to cast Patrick Wilson, Josh Lucas and Bradley Cooper in a comedy where they play brothers.
