    A few years ago, I was walking in NYC along Broadway on a Sunday with some friends. The matinee crowd was queueing up when all of a sudden some woman screamed at me, "OMG, it's Kiefer Sutherland !!!" Meaning me. lol. Flattering but sort of scary. Everyone staring with predatory looks in their eyes. Ever been mistaken for a celeb?

    I've been told I look like some celebrities, but as far as being mistaken for one it only happened twice - also in Manhattan, for the same celebrity, the same rainy week. I was asked flat out if I was Stephen Bauer by both a cab driver and a waiter. Bauer is probably best known as Al Pacino's sidekick in Scarface - the one that married his sister.

    This was in 1987 when I was new to the city during my first couple of nights on the town involving cab rides and restaurant dinners, dressed up in a navy suit with an olive raincoat. Recently I saw the movie "Sword of Gideon" and it all made sense. Bauer headlined that flick in '86 and aside from suits and trenchcoats wore olive drab through much of it. He'd probably also been in NYC promoting the film.

    Here's a YouTube clip of Bauer rockin' an olive military tank top in "Gideon": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lM4h4TsEDqE

    I don't see it, but more than once I've been mistaken for U2 drummer, Larry Mullen, Jr:

    Once, I was told that I looked like James Woods.
    Thanks a lot...

    My own mother once told me that I looked like Michael Caine !
    Witch !

    My ex told me that I looked a little like Anderson Cooper.

    Another ex had a little "shrine" (on his desk) of pics of this model who he thought was really hot.
    The first time I met him (the ex), he asked me if I was related to the model, because he thought I looked so much like him.

    Back in the day, a couple people told me I looked like Clay Aiken. If I didn't slit my wrists back then, I know I never will. Anthony Rapp (I think), the guy from Rent, was another that someone told me. What the FUCK??

    ...and you think you could have met Hermione Gingold, if you only had turned around. Maybe "Adam Sandler" is too good to meet Hermione Gingold. ... icon_rolleyes.gif
