Have you ever played this game? Where you try to spot the faces of celebrities in the faces of people you work with/go to school with?

It could be a stretch of the imagination that reminds you of them or it could be they look like they were seperated at birth!


At my old school I had a teacher that looked like a young James Woods. I have an uncle that looks like Harrison Ford, and my old boss looked like James Earl Jones. I had another teacher who had the voice and mannerisms of Norm Macdonald, but his face was slightly different. And I even have a friend who reminds me of Randy Quaid (and HE had a friend who looked like a young Christopher Walkin with a vague Leonardo DiCaprio sense to him). In Jr. High I knew a guy who looked like a young Alan Ruck (like in Ferris Bueller's Day Off).

At my new school there's a guy in my class who looks like a young Woody Harrelson and a gal working at the cafeteria who looks like Liv Tyler.

Anybody else play this game? Or had the guts to? ;)

And finally to the wise-crackers amongst us, I don't mean REAL celebrities you have met, but people you know or have met that LOOK like celebrities (but aren't... get it?)!

My English Prof looks exactly like the guy that plays Daniel in Stargate. Not James Spader, but the TV show guy. Also one of my best friends from highschool looked like Topher Grace.

And I can't list more. I never made a game out of it. It was just an obvious observation.

Watching old specials about Star Wars I was struck how my high school speech coach looked like a young George Lucas (when he was skinny and wore glasses).

You know that spooky Nazi in Indy I that always wore black? My grade school music teacher looked EXACTLY like him. He even had the glasses.

I can't think of anyone who looks like a celeb, but one of the retired now-substitute teachers sounds like the voice actor for Elmer Fudd.

One of my college teachers, a couple years back, somehow looked like a young William H. Macy. He was a pretty cool guy IIRC, we even managed to let us finnish class early for Halloween or sometihng, good times.

My English teacher looks like George Lucas. A bit more in the belly, but otherwise, exactly like Lucas.

Same here, ummm... except I got a hair cut and new glasses, now I am in 12th and people still say that I look like him (crap, my hair is less than an inch long...) Hah, I remember one time in walmart a few kids were like "mommy mommy, that boy looks like harry potter..." and I hated it.. :-\ )

lol...interesting. I have something somewhat similar to your story. When my grandma went to teach English in South Korea, she'd show pictures of me and she told me they would say that I looked like Harry Potter. Now, I really don't look like Harry Potter (what a relief). Anyway, I have nobody from the top of my head that I can think of that looks like anybody famous.

I know a guy who looks like Jon Heder a.k.a. Napolean Dynamite, but he doesn't look like the character. :p I know another that looks sort of like Brad Paisley (singer), but the closest in appearance to someone famous looks exactly like Ben Stiller. He even sounds like him. It's almost creepy. :D

Perhaps I could do it for you? :giveup:
Heh. He's a nice enough guy but let's just say he doesn't appreciate my calling him 'Mr. Stiller'. :p

There's no way I'm asking him, unless I actually know what the question holds. :p So you are just going to have to live with the knowlege that I know someone that looks just like Ben Stiller and you don't. Now if you meet a 'Mr. Stiller', feel free to ask your silly question. :p
