Trends, fads, blah. But, as someone that wants to be attuned to pop culture, I’ve engaged on what has been called “Doppelganger week”. One of my old AmVil directors claimed that Seth Rogen wasn’t a good doppelganger, but I’ve heard it from enough people, friends and strangers, to accept a general resemblance.
MyHeritage.com is one of the main places for facial recognition to match you with a celebrity look-a-like. While theoretically interesting, the human eye does a better job than their program.
I used 3 different pictures.
Scruffy (the one from above): To which it matched my resemblance to:
Michael Rosenbaum, John Wayne, Gary Busey, Nathan Lane, Forest Whitaker, Cat Stevens, Josh Groban, Steven Seagal, Fred Durst and Ben McKenzie.
Bearded: Andre Agassi, Jared Leto, David Schwimmer, JC Chasez, Alec Baldwin, Adam Brody, Xzibit, Fred Savage, Eric Clapton, David Spade.
It gets even more ridiculous…
Clean-shaven: Enrique Iglesias, Rachel Corrie (the girl that died in the Israeli bulldozer incident), Ronaldo, Leslie Cheung (Hong Kong actor/musician), Jimi Hendrix, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Tony Danza, Ernest Shackleton, Jet Li, Sidney Poitier.
As I wrote on FB:
I think if given this list of people, one probably could easily discern what I look like.
“Ohh, he looks like a cross between Jet Li, Sidney Poitier, Xzibit and Schwarzenegger. With a bit of the main guy characters from The OC thrown in.”
And now, who does Seth Rogen look like? Well, according to the above picture, via MyHeritage.com: Nicholas Brendon, Colin Firth, Josh Duhamel, Isaac Hanson, Hal Sparks, Jim Morrison, Tom Brady, Bing Crosby, Travis Barker and David Desrosiers (from the band Simple Plan).
Do you know a better site for facial recognition? Any other related things that you’ve found to be cool? What celebrities have you been told you look like? Do you agree?
