Top 10 Actors Who Look Like Other Actors

Forgive the long title but I didn’t want to call it Lookalike Actors because then you might think I meant something like this –


No, I meant real actors who happen to look like each other. I know we’ve seen them all before and I know it’s not a new idea, but it’s still fun. And because I’m a bitch I’m going to judge who’s better looking.

10. Logan Marshall-Green and Tom Hardy


Obviously Tom Hardy wins. He strikes me as a kind-of-annoying bighead but christ he’s good looking.

9. Kirsten Stewart and Teresa Palmer


Both very striking girls but Kirsten wins for me. That picture is so old isn’t it.

8. Lee J. Cobb and Jason Segal


I guess Jason Segal? Before he got skinny I wouldn’t have minded too much.

7. Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Javier Bardem


Bardem. But only when he has his hair like he did in No Country For Old Men.

6. Amy Adams and Isla Fisher


Both lovely ladies but Isla is extra special.

5. Daniel Radcliffe and Elijah Wood


Obviously Daniel Radcliffe. Despite having similarities Elijah Wood is just weird.

4. James Franco and James Dean


James Dean wins hands down. And lets face it, the James Franco I refer to here existed almost as long ago as he did.

3. Eli Roth and Zachary Quinto (who I think was in Heroes or something)


I actually really fancy Eli Roth. This is purely an attraction based on looks, you know when someone makes you go ‘grrrrrrrr’.  He’s large and he’s hairy and I really wouldn’t object to spending quality time with him. Sigh.

2. Mark Wahlberg and Matt Damon


Both guys are pretty average nowadays but at one point Mark Wahlberg was stunning. I don’t remember Matt Damon ever rocking a pair of Calvins like this and for that, he’ll always win.

1. Natalie Portman and Keira Knightly


Obviously Natalie Portman wins. She’s one of those annoyingly perfect people who probably wins everything.

    I remember from an episode of “The Big Bang Theory” that Zachary Quinto played Spock in one of the more recent “Star Trek” movies. Or was that someone else?

    You’re not kidding, though, these people are almost complete duplicates of each other.

      No I think you’re right! He may have even played him in the movie? DEFINITE Spock connections however 🙂 thanks for reading and commenting!

  2. Renate says:

    Haha Emma you are too hilarious and that was an awesome list of lookalikes! I do agree with most of them but I would have said Keira, she is! 😀

  3. Great idea Emmy!!!

  4. The Vern says:

    This was great Emmy. I loved the comparisons with Amy Adams and Isla Fisher. I would also include Rachel Leigh Cook to the trio of of Knightly and Portman because I think at times she is playing the younger version of them,

    • emmakwall says:

      Yes I agree with your trio! She has the same delicate, pretty features. I suppose with Amy and Isla their hair is the main thing but they do share other comparisons, so glad you liked this Verny!! 🙂

  5. stephen1001 says:

    nice idea for a list!

  6. What a fun post for a Monday Ems! These are all excellent picks. I’d add Jada Pinkett Smith & Zoe Saldana, and Chord Overstreet & Austin Butler. Oh! And Matt Bomer & Henry Cahill.😊

    Keira Knightly said on ‘The Graham Norton Show’ girls will chase after her screaming “Natalie Natalie”

  8. beetleypete says:

    A fun idea, Em. You even managed to find a lot of people who actually look like each other too!
    And of course, it is always good to see you these days.
    As ever, Pete. XXX

  9. Always fun these type of posts – great start to Monday. Wow…some of these are soooo similar. Hard to tell apart. I always think of Timothy Olyphant and Josh Duhamel when thinking of similar looking actors.

    • emmakwall says:

      Thank you! I thought the same thing about a fun post for a Monday 🙂

      Great comparison with Timothy and Josh! There’s been some great suggestions thrown into the mix 🙂
