Star Match

Some stars share physical similarities and/or career paths. For example, when I try to picture Thomas Jane and Aaron Eckhart together in my mind’s eye, it’s hard for me to tell them apart. So here’s a list of my “Star Matches”. If you see the match say so; if not who’s your match?

“ See Thomas Jane for comparison. ” - starmatch
 
2.
“ It goes beyond the chin cleft, dirty blonde, square jaw look. Each has shined in satirical roles (Eckhart:Thank You For Smoking/Jane:Hung), and both played characters with mangled faces (Jane as Harvey Dent in The Dark Knight/Jane as the voice of Jonah Hex in the D.C. video version).
Eckhart: http://www.imdb.com/media/rm3459548672/nm0001173

“ Let me count the ways: Petite, blonde, prepubescent Disney stars, pop recording artists, concerted attempts to break their squeaky clean image (Duff’s role as Yonica in War, Inc./Cyrus’ pole dancing and Vanity Fair pics)
Duff: http://www.imdb.com/media/rm1786418176/nm0240381

His first professional role was as Blackie Parrish on the daytime soap General Hospital from 1982-1984...
“ Hard to tell where one ends and the other begins. Zmed’s apex was TJ Hooker, which ended in 1985, right about the time Stamos got his first gigs. Adrian is of Romanian descent and John is Greek, which explains their equally swarthy appearances. Question: has anyone ever seen them in the same room together?

“ The Two J’s who come off as wannabe blondes with equal parts spunk and sex appeal. Pressly works mostly in comedy, but King has also dabbled in the funny stuff. JP specializes in the trashy ditzoid while JK is more girl next door with added vavoom.
