Have you seen actors that you'd swear must be related, they look so much alike? Or, you're just waiting for them to play siblings or parent/child due to the resemblance?
I was thinking of this earlier, after reading an article about Katherine Heigl. I was looking at her, thinking about how much she reminds me of Charlize Theron. And, when I first saw Charlize Theron, I couldn't get over how much she reminded me of Ashley Judd. I swear, the three could be sisters!
Or, am I the only one who sees the resemblance?

What about you? Any actors that you've always thought should be on screen together as family members - whether due to looks, or attitude, or facial tics, or whatever? Please share!

Oh, you mean related to other actors! I thought you meant related to ME.

Clark Gable and George Clooney both look like my mother's father and brothers.

Yes, I can see what you mean about Charlies Theron and Ashley Judd. I'm not familiar with Katherine Heigl, so I'll look her up....

Yup, looks like she could be their younger sister.

I see it sometimes.

Adam Sandler, particularly in "Reign Over Me" could nearly be a double for Bob Dylan. (Okay so Bob Dylan is a musician, but whatever lol) Check this out to see the likeness

Also Nicole Scherzinger (Pussycat Dolls singer) and Rosalyn Sanchez from "Without A Trace" have always looked a lot a like to me. According to Wiki they even included that in a movie:
Quote:
She (Scherzinger) briefly appeared in the movie Chasing Papi as Miss Puerto Rico, whose appearance as a candidate was impersonated by the character of Roselyn Sanchez, with whom Scherzinger shared a physical resemblance.

Laugh at me if you will, but Jon Cusack gets more Alan Rickman-esque with each passing year. Go ahead, compare them on imdb. I'll wait...















Well? Didn't I tell you?
Now when I say Dennis Quaid is becoming Meatloaf, or Ricky "Rick" Schroder has grown up to be Willem Dafoe, you might not roll your eyes so quick.

Brad Pitt is a dead ringer for a younger Robert Redford.

Cusack/Rickman- hmmmm. Well, I see similar hair line. Similar lips. Rickman's eyes are... beadier. They're both Irish.

Christian Slater/Jack Nicholson
Christian
Jack

Also Jay Leno/Fred Savage. I've always seen a resemblance somehow.

I see a resemblance between Danica Patrick (the NASCAR racer) and actress Demi Moore. Danica looks like she could be one of Demi's daughters.

I always thought that Helen Hunt and Leelee Sobieski looked like mother/daughter.

Brad Pitt and Robert Redford - definitely!

I know I've thought of more. I'll post them once I remember.
