Separated at birth: 2010 style

Mark Feeney in the Globe notes that certain athletes look like certain actors.

It's not especially original to observe that athletes are artists in their own right. What's interesting is when they remind you of specific performers. It can be how they look (Robert Ryan for "The Ted Williams Story," Matt Damon ditto for Tom Brady).

The Damon/Brady one is good, however Damon is a little short for that one, no? How about Daniel Bard plays Brady instead? They could shoot it in September/October, Bard probably won’t be doing much then anyway.


One I would add is, Roger the crazy alien from American Dad could play Rajon Rondo. Uncanny, right?


All of this brings to mind - Anyone who watches Sky Sports coverage of the NFL can testify that former Chicago Bears superstar Shaun Gayle has amazingly morphed into a carbon copy of Irish National Team and Hurricanes legend Tom Kelley. What makes it more intriguing is that their mannerisms also seem almost identical. Further embroiling the situation, they both graduated from Ohio based schools!
