Evil Twins

When I see someone for the first time, I frequently try to decide what famous person they look like. I love assigning people their evil twin. This game is especially fun when you are walking with a friend through crowds of people. 

As the unsuspecting public walks past, you discreetly say a name of who you think they look like. It is especially gratifying when you both agree on a name. A variation of this is when you see someone who is a combination of two people. There are many more mixes or combinations of people in the general public than pure evil twins.

I've noticed that some people get certain celebrities confused with one another. Here is a list of some people who either look alike or remind me of each other:

Kurt Russell and Patrick Swayze
Jay Leno and Taylor Hicks
Missy Peregrym and Hilary Swank
Mark Walberg and Matt Damon
Woody Harrelson and Lance Armstrong
Gregory Peck and Carey Grant
Seth Green and Jamie Kennedy
LeeLee Sobieski and Helen Hunt
Nicholas Cage and Andy Garcia
Christopher Walken and Jon Voight
Gary Busey and Nick Nolte
Cheryl Crow and Carly Simon
Matthew Broderick and Robert Downey Jr.
Charlie Brown and Phil Collins
Jean Tripplehorn and Marcia Gay Harden
Salma Hayek and Penelope Cruz
Owen Wilson and Ellen Degeneres
Colin Hay and Christopher Eccleston
Michael York and Richard Chamberlain
Jack Black and Oliver Platt
Richard Branson and Wolf From American Gladiators
Elvis Costello and The Verizon Guy
Jack Nicholson and Jack Nicklaus (You know you've confused them even though they don't look alike.)

One of my favorite websites that features nothing but evil twins is Totally Looks Like.

Please feel free to offer any of your suggestions that I might add to the list.

Owen Wilson and Ellen cracked me up. I always thought Russell and Swayze were cousins? I just googled it and they are not. Hm.

I do the same thing when I go places! I am always seeing people that remind me of famous people. My sister and I especially do it when we get together... It's a pretty good way to pass the time haha.
