Lookalikes – people who remind us of someone else

Every so often we’re going to post a photo of a famous person you should know and alongside that individual, we’ll post the person who we believe to be almost a dead ringer or the person who often hears, “Golly, has anyone ever told you, you look like so and so? We’ll do our best to discover all of these lookalikes and if you have someone you want to add, please send it along. The more the merrier.


 

We’ve all said it: “You know who you remind me of?” And then hopefully we get a positive response rather than the fatal, “Buddy, you’re losing it. You are so off base. I think you need to get your eyes checked.” Well, here’s our latest attempt to get more positives than negatives. What we’ll do is sprinkle in a few doppelgangers from the Internet to placate the most vociferous of critics.

The first of our lookalikes is Andrea Medina one of the very best USA Amateur Boxers who in April of 2010 started getting all these telephone calls from family and friends to tell her how much she resembled the star of the movie “Kick Ass” child actor Chloe Grace Moretz. What we did here is mix in several photos of Ms. Moretz with photos of Andrea Medina to see if you are in agreement.

With our second entry, you just have to agree the homerun hitter for the Baltimore Orioles, 3rd baseman Manny Machado could easily be mistaken for our compadre/local undefeated boxer Adrian Vargas (13-0-1) from The Arena.

David Huey (r), the co-owner of Muay Thai America in North Hollywood, agrees with our assessment and told us of the many times that strangers came up to him and ask him, “Are you the famous Dog Whisperer, Cesar Millan?”

Actor Woody Harrelson and lifeguard Chris “Bam Bam” Pharo are both athletic, both are the same exact height and weight, and when it comes to temperament, facial expressions, smile and sense of humor, it’s almost uncanny.

Question: Which of these gentlemen is the celebrated actor, director, musician, singer, comedian, and author Hugh Laurie who from 2004 until 2012 played Dr. Gregory House on the popular TV medical drama, House? Too easy? The cane may have given him away. The other gentleman appears to be on an airport shuttle and wearing a shirt and badge worn by United Airlines employees.

If you don’t know these two gentlemen than you’ve been living under a rock. (left) You have the 13th President of the United States, Millard Fillmore, who was labeled the most forgettable president of all time. Fillmore, born in New York, switched political parties and went from the Whigs to the Know Nothing Party. To his credit, he did open Japan to the outside world while his successor Donald Trump appears to be headed in a different direction with North Korea. Until fellow New Yorker, Donald John Trump was elected President, Fillmore had been considered the most lampooned president of all time. (right) Alec Baldwin, his lookalike, is a comedic actor, who is currently having lots of fun lampooning our current President Donald John Trump on the popular TV Show, Saturday Night Live. Wow! Far too many coincidences.

No caption needed for our beloved sitting President (left). The other gent, Alec Baldwin, has everyone chuckling on Saturday nights.

(top, center) Trained by Bellator MMA standout Chad George, mixed martial artist Cameron Thomson of the California Mixed Martial Arts Club of Los Angeles is a man who needs no introduction. The sociopath who bears a minuscule resemblance to Mr. Thomson is Hollywood actor Will Ferrell, who has this personality disorder. Desperate for attention, Ferrell will do whatever is necessary to have his face plastered all over television, print media and the Internet. Starring in three to four movies a year is just not enough.

Photos, top row: actor William DeMeo, bottom two rows: boxer Gamaliel Diaz. The bottom right photo is the most up-to-date photo we could find of the 36-year-old former Super Featherweight World Champion.

After losing back to back title fights in 2008 and 2009, Mexican fighter Gamaliel Diaz was thought to be washed up. Instead, he went on to win 13 straight fights. Then, in early September of 2012, he got a call about this golden opportunity to fight for the WBC World Title against its champion, southpaw Takahiro Ao in his hometown of Tokyo, Japan. With this being Ao’s fourth defense of his title, Diaz was thought to be a huge underdog. But the money was too good to pass up. This boxing scribe just happened to watch that October 27th fight and was amazed at how Diaz completely shut down the Japanese champion to win this 12 round unanimous decision victory. After that against all odds performance, we kept tabs on his career. Then, a friend from Philadelphia told us about this writer/actor William DeMeo from the Bronx who was starring in the movie he wrote called Back in the Day. The movie, set in Philadelphia, was about a young boxer who was taken under the wing of a mob boss after his Mother died and his Father was run out of town for being an abusive alcoholic. After watching this movie, we discovered that the actor/writer was the spitting image of Gamaliel Diaz. Watch the movie and you will agree.

When you’re an actor, a make-up artist can make you look like anybody they choose. (l to r) In the first photo, we see John Travolta in his early thirties after starring in the highly successful movie “Urban Cowboy”. The next photo shows a likeness of Travolta from the first part of the 19th century. In the final two photos we have a photo of the deceased crime boss John A. Gotti and finally, a photo of the actor John Travolta who played the mob king-pin in a soon to be released movie. A Hollywood make-up artist can make you look like anybody.
