Actors/Actresses you always get confused?

You know the 2 people that look similar, maybe follow similar career paths, or you just don't have a clue why you always forget their names when referring to them in a particular movie.

I always get Zooey Deschanel and Maggie Gyllenhaal mixed up.


I don't know what it is, but I do. There are many others that I will get to remembering...

Some actors that I sometimes have to think twice about to make sure I know which one they are:

Kim Delaney, Amy Brenneman, and Jill Hennessy.

Bill Paxton and Bill Pullman.

Tom Bosley and David Doyle.

Lee Marvin and James Coburn.

As a kid I always confused Dustin Hoffman and Robert DeNiro. Don't ask why; I don't know.

as an adult I still do. Actually it's Hoffman, DeNiro, and Pacino for me. It's not a physical thing, as they look nothing alike, but I always get confused just who was in what movie.

When I was younger I'd get Patrick Swayze and Kurt Russell mixed up. And Joe Pesci and Danny Devito.

Peter Berg/Kevin Dillion I can definitely see.

Me too!

Although it's been easier to tell them apart the last few years because Tom Sizemore seems to be aging much more rapidly than Michael Madsen.

For me it was Ashley Judd and Charlize Theron.

For half of my life I thought that Steve Martin and Leslie Nielsen were the same guy, and marvelled at how prolific the comedian was.
