Doppelgangers – Part 4

If you’ve ever looked at this blog over the last however many number of years, you should have come across my Doppelgangers posts: Part 1Part 2, and Part 3.

I love celebrity lookalikes.  Sometimes, when I’m watching TV or a movie, I can’t get it out of my head how much one actor looks like another.  This was the case again last night which is why I figured it was finally time to do a Part 4.

The very first time I watched Matt Leblanc’s newest show, Man With a Plan I was stumped for a bit….trying to rack my brain to figure out who Lowell reminded me of.  Then suddenly it hit me!

Lowell….looks (and sounds!) just like…..

Lowell aka Matt Cook

Hermey from Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer!

Seriously….watch Man With a Plan and then Rudolph and you’ll see it (and hear it!)

A few years ago there was a character on The Walking Dead named Eric.  He was Aaron’s boyfriend and he bit the dust in a hard way.  Whenever I saw him on screen, I thought he could be Alicia Witt’s twin.

Ever think you’re seeing double?  What about triple?

Emily Osment and Carrie Underwood often look like the same person.  But Jessica Lowe (aka the boob shaking new wife in Blended (with Drew Barrymore)) has the same nose and bears an unremarkable resemblance to Emily Osment.  When I first saw Blended, I totally thought I was watching Emily Osment.

You may recall I was (am) a huge fan of the original 90210.  So, of course when the new redux series started, I had to watch.  My friend Amy (Amy Whoreface) had a big crush on Matt Lanter from the show.  He wasn’t Dylan and the show wasn’t the original.

And speaking of not living up to the original (although most people disagree with this one), Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the series, in my opinion, sucked.  Maybe I felt that way because I was part of that cult following the movie and think, although it oozed fromage, it was stinkin’ perfect.  (Plus, it had Luke Perry – aka Dylan.).   And since I didn’t much care for the series, I didn’t much care for its actors, including Riley aka Marc Blucas…but maybe Amy Whoreface would have liked him. (PS. Sorry Cat!)

*whew*  That was a roundabout way of getting to my point, wasn’t it?

Back in the Dawson’s Creek days, I always thought Kerr Smith (Jack) and Julian McMahon (Cole on the original Charmed) were older and younger versions of each other.

But also….I was watching some a few months ago and I saw this guy who I thought was Kerr Smith, but it was some dude named Wes Brown.

Seriously?  How are these people NOT related??

Speaking of 90210 earlier, Ryan Eggold, who’s now the star of New Amsterdam, also played a teacher, Ryan, on the new 90210.  Back in that day (which, let’s be honest, wasn’t that long ago), he looked a lot like Justin Chadwin.

Justin Chadwin definitely has a more square-shaped head, but that considering, they could be related.

Now that Ryan Eggold has moved onto playing a Doctor on New Amsterdam and has that gnarly buzz cut, he looks a lot like Matthew Fox when he played a (stranded) Doctor on Lost and sported a buzz cut.

Matthew Fox (by the way….WHERE is Matthew Fox these days?)

I tried really hard to find pics of them both in scrubs but…I just wasn’t finding what I needed.  I would still let either of them kiss my boo boo better.

I know I’m not the only one who has thought this about this next one – I’ve heard other comments about it.  “Hey, doesn’t that girl look like the girl from Saved by the Bell?

I’m sure it’s the eyes and the round cheeks and the hair…..and, of course, the boobs.

And lastly, what got me to stop being lazy and finally make this new post of twinsies.

Last night I was watching Law & Order: SVU and it was driving me nuts how familiar the main guest start looked.  I checked out her profile on IMDB and I’d never heard of her.  Then it hit me with a *thunk*.

This woman, Willa Fitzgerald….

Looks like a blond version of Rachel Weisz.

Still not quite convinced? (I swear, you need to see her in person aka on screen) to really see it.)

Well…do you see them?  All the resemblances?

Who else will be popping up?  We’ll have to wait and see.

Beet It

I’ve been really into beets lately, specifically, roasted beet salad (I’m eating some right now) and it got me to thinking back to when I was 14 or 15 when I’d read in a magazine that cutting a beet open and rubbing the juice on your lips would stain them perfectly.

Because, who wouldn’t want lips this gorgeous color?

My grandfather had a garden and one day sent home a small bunch of beets for me…for my lips.

And it worked!  I was so excited slicing into that first beet.  I mean, it didn’t look Revlon lips, but hey man, I can’t complain too much.

Nearly perfect

That is all.  I just wanted you to know how I feel about beets.  ❤

Ah beets…the prettiest colored root vegetable in the garden.

Cheers.
