TWINS: The Eerie Resemblance

By N Mark Castro

In light of the recent posting I made — culled from the net, of course — of the eerie similarity of two famous personalities:

Nicholas Cage resembles a Civil War doppelganger

And then there’s JayZ

So in the interst of X-Files like investigation which involved, mainly, Google, I decided to gather again similar posts for your entertainment. Try to figure out the names of those they look alike or … those who they are now.

After all, we do need a break from politics every now and then …

George Washington and ...

George Washington and …

Did I say break from politics?

John Brown and ...

John Brown and …

To educate you in a lighter way, John Brown was an Abolitionist who believed that the only way to end the institution of slavery was through an armed revolution.

If you are to seek the origin of the phrase “No Action, All Talk,” then John would be your guy. While he was disappointed with pacifism, he was heard to have said: “These men are all talk. What we need is action—action!”

And speaking of Action, nothing and no one beats the legendary statement of the guy next to him (unless, of course, they are one and the same guy) when confronted by the judge on his alleged brush with the law:

“Is it true you pay women for sex?”

To which he replied, “No, Your Honor, I pay them to leave.”

Oscar Wilde and ...

Oscar Wilde and …

They’re both British. They’re both pretty. They’re both witty. And they’re both, whoa, the same person?

If there had been Twitter during his time, he would’ve been the most popular Twitterati in the world. Well, he did just that as well without the aid of technology. Social satirist, author (Dorian Gray among others), playwright, and a tortured soul, Oscar Wilde made your imaginations run wild. A sample of his quotable quotes is this:

The only thing worse than being talked about is not being talked about.

KRPaul Mounet and …

One is an actor of a certain era and the other is, well, an actor, too!

What great conspiracy is this?

Paul Revere and ...

Paul Revere and …

No, this was NOT PHOTOSHOPPED. This was an actual rendition of John Singleton Copley for the Portrait of Paul Revere. c. 1768–70, who was then a humble silversmith but became a legendary American Patriot for alerting the militia on the arriving British forces. If you Google the life of Paul Revere, does it not have such an uncanny resemblance to the roles portrayed by the guy next to him? Well, of course, they’re the same person.

Rose Wilder Lane and ...

Rose Wilder Lane and …

Together with Ayn Rand and Isabel Paterson, Rose Wilder Lane is considered as one of the founding mothers of the American libertarian movement. Journalist, travel writer, novelist, and political theorist, is it any surprise why the girl next to her has an intelligence the likes of which you seldom see in Hollywood?

Abraham Lincoln and ...

Abraham Lincoln and …

Abraham Lincoln educated the entire world with his advocacy against slavery while the guy next to him educated the world with his love for science. Coincidence? I think not.

Benjamin Franklin and ...

Benjamin Franklin and …

Both are geniuses … one in music and the other, well, in just about everything. Must you wonder why?

Alexander Severus and ...

Alexander Severus and …

Born into violence, he strove hard to find peace and prosperity that has haunted him while alienating many. Oh, that goes for Alexander Severus too.

King Philipp IV

King Philipp IV

Both were young and both commanded the entire known world, must we suspect why?

Caesar Augustus and ...

Caesar Augustus and …

Both are Emperors … that’s all you’ll ever need to know unless you want to die.

Charles Darwin and ...

Charles Darwin and …

He brought science to comedy … need we say more why such evolution happened?

A housewife and ...

A housewife and …

Both are pretty … and now we know why.
