Have Your Say: Pick Actor Siblings Who Aren't Siblings!
A few weeks ago I saw the Dutch apocalyptic science fiction film Molly, and noticed a striking resemblance between actress Annelies Appelhof (who plays Molly's exoskeleton-enhanced nemesis Kimmy) and American actress Julianne Moore.
I mean... check that image. And that's just something I culled from the trailer; once I get my hands on a copy of the entire film I can probably find even better examples. You could easily mistake them for sisters. Maybe not twins, but siblings for sure.

Thing is, they aren't related. Well, as far as I know at least...
You'll often see this though, especially when browsing through international cinema: actors who REALLY look like their (often more famous) American colleagues.
Hell, sometimes the effect is so strong that I look up the cast list to see if I spotted a secret cameo.

I can't be the only one who occasionally runs into this phenomenon, so I'm making it the question of the week: name two actors or actresses who resemble each other so much that they'd make a great combination for playing brothers and/or sisters.
Chime in, in the comments below, and HAVE YOUR SAY!

Kris Stewart & Teresa Palmer.
Tho they can't rly play twins cause they have completely different vibe about them.
Unless the movie is some kind of comedy playing off how weird everything about such a setup is ^^

I watched Certified Copy recently and couldn't get over the resemblance.

Ard VijnMay 2, 2017 5:21 PM

I can actually see that. They would have been absolutely hilarious as son and father.

Let's add Henry Cavill to the "Young Olivier" list of brothers: there are some close-ups in MAN OF STEEL where he looks exactly like Olivier and Fassbender.
