Thread: Celebrities who look alike (and the confusion that results from their resemblance).

    I remember watching a TV special back in the early '80's that featured Tom Bosley, the actor who played "Howard Cunningham" on the sitcom: "Happy Days". He mentioned that everybody mistook him for David Doyle from the original "Chalies Angels" TV show. To make things even more confusing, the character David Doyle played on "Charlies Angels" was named: "John Bosley".


    The resemblance is very strong:

    I saw Danny Bonaduce on a talk show back in the mid '90's, and he said while starring on "The Partridge Family" sitcom, many people mistook him for Mason Reese, the little boy who starred in several classic TV commercials during the '70's.

    Last but not least, many people felt Robbie Rist, the actor who played "Cousin Oliver" on the "Brady Bunch" resembled a young version of John Denver but, I always felt he could have passed as the son of Paul Williams. What does everybody else think?


    Robbie Rist:

    If I think of others, I will post them.


    Cheers!

    "bassman21" and "jitteryjewel"...I agree. Those celebs you posted do look alike.

    "The_Batman"... I don't agree with your examples.

    Cheers !

    "Guild_Navigator", I see the resemblance between Tom Skerrit and Tom Atkins.

    "The Ronin Identity"...Unfortunately, I don't think Tim Meadows and Don Cheadle look alike. Perhaps I need to examine more photos of them ?


    Cheers!

    Thank you for having an "open mind" Carleen. My wife disagrees with this, but everybody is entitled to their own opinion, I guess. I agree with you. As characters, "Howard Cunningham" and "John Bosley" had similar personalities.

    Cheers!

    Very true. I know people that confuse Dale Dye with these two also.
