We're all well aware of the celebrity doppelgangers -- Zooey Deschanel and Katy Perry, Fergie and Kirstie Ally -- and while many starlets unquestionably look the same, there are a select few whose aura and work history means we couldn't pick them out of the rolling credits if we tried. They are the commonly confused celebs, those with a weird kind of sameness that make you ask: "Is Spock the same guy as The Bear Jew?" Surely we're not alone in our perpetual mix-ups of these famous names...

You're SERIOUSLY grasping at straws for next button clicks if you think Zach, Seth and Jonah look alike.  What, because they all have extra padding? Wear plaid? Belts on darker shade jeans? Get over yourself.

according tothis list, the paparazzi are all on crack....none look like the other, but since this list i8s so insanely wrong, they should've put john good man and rosanne barr as look-alikes because they look more alike than Gerard Butler and Russel Crowe...lol..puh-leeze!

You can put Jenna Fischer (Pam from the office) in between Amy Adams and Isla Fisher and you can have triplets.

You can't tell Dennis Quaid and Harrison Ford apart because they both make the same kind of movie?  You're joking, right?

This list was brutal, I would say a trip to the optometrist is in order. Perhaps Lasik, otherwise lay off the booze Seriously!!

Jan 21, 2013 2:37PM
No comparison....Dennis looks like an aging thug.
Jan 21, 2013 8:51PM

I always get Julia Stiles and Erika Christensen confused.

Top in your list of celeb look alikes ought to be Michelle Fairley (Game of Thrones) and Joan Allen (Hachiko, Face Off).  They look like twins, if not the same person, in many pictures.

How can you possibly make this list complete without the MOST identical pairing of Denis Leary and Willem Dafoe?
