What famous person could you be a double for?

All the hubaloo about picking actors/actresses for BF forum members, got me to thinking about this topic.

What famous people do you look so close to, you could almost be a double? Anybody?

I could almost be a double for this guy:
Bubba The Love Sponge - Shock Jock radio dude who got "big" here in the TampaBay area, but then last year got kicked off the air (FCC) and I think is not exclusively on XM/Sirrus.


If I did the "metrosexual" blonde highlights and dressed the same, I could pass as a double for this guy. First time I saw this pic (on a billboard) it almost spooked me for a second.

On a good day, Bruce Willis, on a bad day, Michael Chiklis. But I'm evil, and God is trying to punish me, so most people say Billy Corgan,(which I don't see at all...)

When I was little, it was the "I Want the World" girl from Willy Wonka (I'm not kidding, every time that show was on tv, people let me know).

Last year, after I had my hair done for a function, people told me Jennifer Annistan. I was in the city and it was in the midst of their split, so I had cab drivers, doormen, lots of people say, "you don't need Brad" very surreal. It was only that one day and evening. Every time I denied it, people didn't seen to believe me and said things like, 'that's ok you're among friends."

Makes me realize what a difference a good haircut (or hairdresser) and evening clothes can make. Usually I'm running around with wet hair after a swim.

I currently don't know anybody whom I look like. Whew - saved from editing for a typo by the 30 second limit

I have been told that I look like Lee Marvin or Randy Travis. I used to get Lyle Lovett, but I had taller hair back then. I least I hope it was the hair.

Mmmmm... Sophie B Hawkins.

I've apparently got a very familiar face to people. In high school, I looked like Keifer Sutherland. Then James Hetfield. Shaved my head and everyone said I looked like Goldberg, the wrestler. Recently, I was told twice in 1 week that I look like the guy from Myth Busters. It really freaked out the girl at the grocery store, since I talk just like him too. Being an American in Australia is fun though. My Aussie wife pointed out that everywhere we go, when I start talking out loud, people stop and listen like my accent is something special.

[edit] Have you voted?

I occasionally get Tony Hawk and once or twice I've been told I look like Lance. Personally, I've always thought I was more of Steve McQueen

well there are those here convinced I'm Andreas Kloden's stunt double (he does all the riding, I do all the falling) ... was told I look like a young Anthony Perkins once (the original Psycho, not the best connotation) ... but I've been likened to Jim Carrey often. Even went so far as Ace Ventura one year for Halloween. It's all about being in character, baby

who's who?

When I was in high school one guy always kept telling me I look like Mr. spock, only by the way my ears look. The rest not even close to him.

I still vote on Kloden. It's striking in person, regardless of the beer can picture. The only actress I've ever been compared to is Valerie Kaprisky, only once in my life.

I look a lot like Hillary Rodham Clinton did as a young woman! Only with better glasses.

well, I'll just say (at the risk of SpongeDad making the drive to kick me) that Bibi, you're much better looking than that Valerie Whatsherface. That's all I have to say on that.
