I'm not sure if this has been asked here before but just out of curiosity, how many actors, both movies and TV have twin bros and sisters? As far as I know Linda Hamilton has a twin sis who appeared in T2, Isabel Rosselini and of course the famous sisters from Full House (I guess they don't count since they are not identical twins?). I read somewhere that Elvis Presley had a twin (identical?) who died at birth.

Yes, EP had a twin, named Jesse, who was still-born. Andy Garcia was born with a conjoined twin who never developed. You've named the only other two, Hamilton & Rossellini, that I know about.

Their was a Twilight Zone(80's version) that kinda of dealt with the Elvis twin.
Bring back John Doe! Or at least resolve the cliff-hanger with a 2hr movie or as an extra on a dvd release.

Nicholas Brendan of Buffy has a twin, as does Cleavant Derricks of Sliders. I think Alexandra Paul does, too.

Nicholas Brendon (Xander on "Buffy") has a twin brother (Kelly Donovan), who got a chance to be on an episode of "Buffy" ("The Replacement"), and was also Nicholas's stunt double. Both brothers went by their first and middle names for their stage names. Their last name is Shultz.

Jill Hennessy has a twin sister (Jacqueline), who appeared in "Dead Ringers" (Cronenberg).

Speaking of T2, Don and Dan Stanton play Lewis the security guard, and the T-1000 version of him, respectively.

Thanks! Those two brothers I knew were twins but I just couldn't remember their names. Also, the actor who played the father (I don't remember his name)on Different Strokes and the next door neighbor on Maude has an identical twin brother.

I couldnt remember their names either but I remembered one was on that great show from the 90's "I'll Fly Away," so I did a search for that.

Are Martin Sheen and brother Joe Estevez twins?

There is a VERY strong resemblance, both in voice and in appearance.

Deidre Hall of Days of our lives also has an identical twin sis. She was on Martha the other day and mentioned it. Her real life twin sis played her evil twin on the show.

It's late, and I am probably wrong, but does James Marsden?

That would be Conrad Bain of Diff'rent Strokes fame and his brother Bonar.
