I was listening to one of Pollak's podcasts yesterday and he mentioned that people on the street tell him 'loved you on Seinfeld!' (Jason Alexander, I guess) which I don't see.

okay, I was sure Kevin Pollak was in the Ref, so I had to check on imdb just now. I guess I need to add a photo of him to my post.

I think Matt Damon and John Cena may be brothers. I could totally see a low-budget Hulk movie with Damon as Banner and Cena as Hulk.

I bought "The Marine" on DVD and my gf was like "Why did you buy a Matt Damon movie?"

Re: Actors/Actresses you always get confused?

Here are a couple more I thought of last night.

First, the dude on Battlestar Galactica, Michael Trucoo (left) is a dead ringer for Dane Cook. Even had to look it up when I first started watching the show. He tripped me up when he had a guest appearance on Big Bang Theory as well.



More obscure(and not so much confusing the two) but I was channel surfing last night and stopped on Over Haulin' and thought the host, Coutney Hanson (right) looked a lot like Missy Peregrym (of Reaper).

Re: Actors/Actresses you always get confused?

When watching the movie I know who I'm watching, but sometimes confuse Ron Silver and Andy Garcia when thinking about movies.

Also hard to keep straight Hugh Marlowe and Jeff Morrow.

I get that, but I can keep Jeff Morrow straight because he was the one with the huge head in THIS ISLAND EARTH. I always had difficulty with Hugh Marlowe and Richard Carlson. One's in EARTH VS. THE FLYING SAUCERS and one's in IT CAME FROM OUTER SPACE and I always have to stop and think which was which.

At one point, it took me a while to figure out that Winstone and Gleeson were two different actors.

I always thought that Matt Dillon dated Brenda in the original 90210. But recently I found out it was Luke Perry instead.

I always get Sarah Michelle Gellar and Jennifer Love Hewitt mixed up for some reason

Also, Winona Ryder, Natalie Portman and Keira Knightley could all play sisters in a Woody Allen comedy, I'm actually shocked this hasn't happened yet.

Don't give him any ideas.

Well, Knightley was one of Portman's decoys in the Star Wars prequels.

And that makes them seem like sisters to you?

Wow. Never saw Keira looking like that. I only remember her from BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM, so what do I know?

Hal Holbrook and Robert Culp. Not necessarily because they look all that much alike, although there is some resemblance, but because of their similar statures and acting styles.
