    I know people who could pass for Nile Rodgers, Jessica Holmes, Tom Cruse, Queen Elizabeth II, and Bill Murray when they are not them, and apparently I look identical to Freddie Fox (three musketeers).

    Who do you (or someone you seen/know) could be a celebrity double to?

    There is a guy I see at my health club who looks exactly, I mean exactly, like actor Matt Bomer.

    Celebrity? I dunno... I occasionally get spam email featuring a certain porn star who looks exactly like one of my college roommates. Except more muscle-ey and of course 25 or 30 years younger. I'm assuming that they could trace their ancestry back to the same little isolated Eastern European village.

    I've had James van der Beek, Ryan Gosling, Calvin Harris, and even David Beckham(!) and I don't look like any of them really.

    I get Nick Gordon a lot. He's not really a celebrity, but he's pretty infamous.

    I have gotten Tom Netherton all my life. I don't think he's a celebrity anymore though. He was the boy singer from the Lawrence Welk years. He could be my brother - we looked alike so much.

    Back when I was in elementary and middle school people use to go on and on about how much I looked like Harry Potter/Daniel Ratcliffe. Someone actually gave me a Harry Potter beach towel for my birthday one year. Back then I actually had hair and very similar glasses.

    People say I look like Chucky from Child's Play.

    You're talking about the actor J.K. Simmons from the movie "Whiplash."

    Well, if this is what I have to look forward to in twenty years someone shoot me now please:

    I met J. K. Simmons once, in Columbus, Ohio, at the Ohio State - Michigan football game of all places. I'm originally from Ohio, he's originally from Michigan, and he's a friend of my buddy's cousin.

    He's a very nice guy with no Hollywood attitude - which is rare for a well-known actor. We were all bundled up on a cold November day, he was wearing a stocking cap, and most people in our group didn't even realize who he was. He just seemed like "one of the guys."

    You could do a lot worse than being mistaken for him, in terms of both looks and personality.

    a guy at my work had his hair cut short recently and shaved his beard off and when I saw him i said "when did Channing Tatum start working here?" he just laughed uncomfortably. Obviously doesn't appreciate my kinda flattery.

    I was actually twice mistaken in one week for a celebrity in town - film actor Steven Bauer, best known from "Scarface" as the right hand man who marries Pacino's sister. This was in 1987 when, new to Manhattan, I splurged on a couple of nights on the town by taking cabs and going to restaurants, dressing up in a navy suit with an olive raincoat. Both a cab driver and a waiter asked me flat out if I was Steven Bauer. Recently I saw the movie "Sword of Gideon" and it all made sense. He'd headlined that flick in '86 and aside from suits and trench coats wore, as an Israeli operative, olive drab through much of it. Odds are he'd been promoting the film in NYC, too.

    I think I aged better. Here he is in 2010, the same age I am now:

    While I was never mistaken for Dean Cain, during his "Lois & Clark" days I was told I looked like him:

    People used to say Marky Mark (Mark Whalberg) but lately they've been saying Donnie Whalberg... icon_sad.gif I'm not sure how to take that.

    It's been said that I have a passing resemblance to Seth Meyers.

    Not sure I see it, tho...
