Doppelgänger of the Day: Vol. 11

August 26, 2011

One of the many benefits of having summers off is that it affords plenty of time to watch History Channel documentaries.  The other day I was channel surfing and quickly found myself engrossed in a History Channel original docudrama titled ‘After Armageddon‘.  This show chronicled the journey of the Johnson family who were trying to survive in a post-apocalyptic United States.

Well worth an hour and a half of your time.

One of the things that immediately struck me about the show was how it starred an incredibly young Ray Romano.  Once I heard the guy talk, however, I knew he was no Manny the Mastodon.  Nope.  It was just television documentary regular Rob Hartz.

Boy, you catch that Rob Hartz guy in the appropriate lighting and he immediately looks like a family-friendly comedian. With better hair.


Doppelgänger of the Day: Vol. 10

April 24, 2011

It’s been a long time since I’ve found some celebrity look-a-likes.  Well, I didn’t need to look much farther than my least favorite coach in the NFL, Bill Belichick.  His twin is long-time actor R.D. Call, who you may remember as “Enforcer” in the critically acclaimed Kevin Costner hit Waterworld.  He also appeared in a few episodes of Walker, Texas Ranger, just like the better half of my last doppelgänger counterparts, Jeffrey Dean Morgan.

There are a couple of leathery, old faces. Does Belichick ever not look disappointed?

Bryce Harper is your God now.

Just keeping tabs on the most coveted 18 year old in the United States.  Other than Miley Cyrus, of course.

Someday these two will grow up, get their drivers licenses, and have the most talented children in the history of the world.

The number one overall pick was compared to all-time greats Ken Griffey Jr. and Alex Rodriguez at 17 years of age.  He was anointed as “Baseball’s Chosen One” by Sports Illustrated.  He earned his GED so he could leave high school two years early and go play Junior College baseball, where he tore up the circuit to the tune of .443/31/98 in 66 games.  And he did it while swinging a wooden bat.  The kid’s basically the Paul Bunyan of baseball.

Sent to earth by our Heavenly Father to save humanity from itself.

So, with his first taste of professional baseball this fall, all eyes were on the wonder-kid who seems to be a modern day Roy Hobbs.  How did he do this fall?  He put on a nice little show for someone who would typically be bagging groceries and taking ECON 101 at his age.  Baseball is a cruel game when it comes to draft picks.  Having number one talent certainly doesn’t guarantee success in professional baseball (hello Bryan Bullington).  However, this kid seems pretty hellbent on making himself the best in the business and, while only at 18 years old, I’m not going to bet against him.

Javier Bardem is an Oscar winning actor.  The other is Jeffrey Dean Morgan.  Jeffrey Dean Morgan is not an Oscar winning actor.  However he was on an episode of Walker, Texas Ranger back in 2000.  Go look it up.

Left: Javier Bardem. Right: Jeffrey Dean Morgan, best known for his role as Jake Horbart on Walker, Texas Ranger, episode #9.9, Child of Hope.

On my brother, Jon.

September 28, 2010

My brother Jon is an insanely creative, intelligent, and clever person.

Meet Jon.

I just wanted to let the world know this.

Where do I apply for this job?

September 8, 2010

Katy Perry, I love you.

I don’t know what it takes to get into this lady’s line of work, but I took art all the way through Art Seminar in high school.  I feel like my qualifications speak for themselves.

But let’s take a moment and highlight what a gal Katy Perry is.  She’s donating her beautiful 32D breasts to help support breast cancer awareness.  If I only had a child’s college fund to spend.  I’d be bidding on those paper mâché breasts and winning.

You minx.

A few little known facts about Sean Connery

September 5, 2010

Sean Connery is one of the most successful and instantly recognizable men on the planet.  But for as much as people read about him and watch his movies, there is a lot of mystery surrounding the original James Bond.  I’ve done some extensive research and found a few little known facts about the man that stole all of our grandmothers’ hearts.

Ladies, brace yourselves.

1. Sean Connery was once offered the lead role in “The Passion of the Christ,” but turned it down because he was tired of being type-cast as “The Savior of All Mankind.”

2. Tired of the political unrest between East and West Germany, Sean Connery took one last mission from the British Secret Service and destroyed the Berlin Wall, then subsequently made love to a German spy on the rubble.

3. Sean Connery once saved the entire race of dragons from extinction.

4. When Sean Connery was knighted, he saved the Queen from a terrorist plot, drank a vodka martini; shaken, not stirred, and then made love to the Queen in her carriage.

5. Each time Sean Connery turns down a part in a movie, an angel catches fire.

6. Sean Connery can make a woman orgasm by smiling at her and winking.

7. Typically it’s very gross to sleep with the same woman as your dad, unless your dad is Sean Connery in which case he has slept with every woman on the planet, so it’s unavoidable.

8. Sean Connery physically gave birth to Indiana Jones after carrying him in a womb he created for himself because he was concerned that a woman wouldn’t be able to handle that much sex appeal inside of them.

9. Excited by the news that Sean Connery decided to reprise his role as James Bond in the movie “Never Say Never Again” in 1983, the United States, Lebanon, and Israel signed an agreement on Israeli withdrawal from Lebanon.

10. Sean Connery will make Scotland an independent nation one day by offering the country a drink and then sleeping with it.

11. Sean Connery once wanted to prove how sexy being bald and having a hairy chest were. He then plucked the hairs out of his head one by one and inserted them in his chest.
