    Anyone ever tell you that you look like someone famous?
    Here are the ones I get (personally, I don't see it, but I've heard these on several occasions):
    Matthew Broderick I think I have his eyes.
    Dave Grahl (from Foo Fighters fame) Particularly if I need a haircut.. and have my goatee.
    Steve Buschemi This one I'm not too proud of.. "kinda funny looking". Some of my friends even refer to me as "Mr Pink". I don't get this one as much since I've put on a few lbs.
    I don't think my signature photo does any of these justice.

    Mark Vollman (of The Turtles, Flo & Eddie, and Frank Zappa's Mothers of Invention). If you see him in 200 Motels, that's EXACTLY what I looked like in college.

    Most people say I look like Dana Carvey. For halloween one year, I was Garth from Wayne's World and I was the spitting image.

    Others have said Harry Anderson or Martin Short.

    When I was in my early twenties, people always told me I looked like Steven Tyler. I think it was mostly because I was the lead singer in a Heavy Metal band and had hair down to my ass. Now that my hair is short, no one ever says I look like him.

    Not really proud of this, but when I was younger, everybody though I looked like Fred Savage in the Wonder Years. Hmmm, maybe I shouldn't be admitting this! [​IMG]

    When I was 17 I was mistaken by a group of teenage girls for Thomas Dolby (singer, She Blinded Me With Science) for an entire weekend. [​IMG]
    Yeah, like I was going to say I wasn't him....sheesh.

    I personally don't think I look like anyone, but I have been accused by other people of looking like:
    Kiefer Sutherland
    Donald Sutherland
    Jason Bateman
    Gibert Gottfried
    French Stewart
    Um, yeah. Try to figure that one out. [​IMG] Such consistency in that list. [​IMG]
    I think the people making those observations were all smoking crack. [​IMG]

    I was the spitting image of Steven Page of the Barenaked Ladies for most of the 90s. I even had my grandmother convinced that it was me in the video for "Lovers in a dangerous time". As I was in a band she had no troubles believing it but I couldn't keep up the ruse for long, afterall it was my grandmother [​IMG] .

    My mom says I look like Peter from the Family Guy cartoon. It's nice knowing I look a cartoon charecter.

    I have a friend who looks like Gary Sinise. Since he didn't originally know Gary Sinise's name, we called him Lieutenant Dan from Forrest Gump, because he's seen that movie.

    http://www.hometheaterforum.com/htfo...&photoid=12226
    Famous for tumbling the 350x he's on down a 200 foot dune in Winchester Bay, Oregon a week ago. Shortly after that he was seen with a medical adrenelin drip attached to his bike inplace of the flag.

    I used to look horribly like David Mellor (except with better teeth and haircut). The name won't mean anything to anyone but Brits. DM was a famous politician who resigned from office some ten years or so ago over an extra-marital affiar which *allegedly* involved him making love whilst wearing the soccer kit of his favourite club. I happened to be doing some shopping on the day he resigned and queuing up in one shop, I could hear some people behind me discussing whether it really was David Mellor in front of them (yeh right - like he'd really travel all the way from London to Worcester to do some shopping on the day he's resigned from a government post) and his/'my' supposed sexual proclivities. My so-called friends kept sending me cuttings from newspapers with headlines like 'wild nights of passion' and pictures of my lookalike attached.

    To add insult to injury, since David Mellor is not ahem, one of the most physically attractive of people, you can imagine how exstatic I am about the comparison.

    I know a girl (I'm only in High School) who looks like Portia de Rossie (the hot blonde from Ally McBeal).
