Celebrity resemblances and you

What celebrity, or celebrities have you been told that you resemble? Just wondering. I'll put mine up later, I'm kinda busy. You can put pics up if you want.

While not really a celebrity, there is a guy that does (or did) man-on-the-street interviews for a program on HBO that aired right before Sex and The City.

I don't know the guy's name nor the segment (which aired every week), but one of my good friends tells me he looks just like me.

I do have the sort of generic-white-guy kinda looks that every one seems to think they know me. I travel a lot on airplanes, and I get that every where I go. Everyone things they know me or have met me.

I also from time to time have people ask me if I am or was a TV news reporter, like on a local TV station.

My resemblence to the young Marlan Brando has been a life long curse.

My ex used to say I looked like Jack Nicholson, but more and more I am looking like Homer J. Simpson.

A couple of people have told me that I reminded them of Philip Seymour-Hoffman, although I have no idea why.

I've also been told that I look like Penn of Penn & Teller...

Not sure if these are good things or not

{on edit} Someone in high school once told me that I looked like Ray Manzerak, but I think it was just the hair and the glasses...I was also thinner at the time

Okay, I was being modest. But, I'm the Love God. I just didn't want to, you know, hurt you little people out there with all that truth all at once.

In my case, the Love God is more aptly portrayed by "Thing", than Lurch.

When I was younger(like 25 years ago) I walked into the office where I worked to talk to one of the secretaries. I walked in, she looked up at me, and made a comment to the gal at the other desk "Doesn't Rick look kind of like Omar Sharif?" The other gal looked at me, smiled and agreed.
I don't see it personally, but there's my story.
Omar on the left, me (back then) on the right.
