Double Take: Author Look-Alikes

While recently flipping through Jim Gaffigan’s hilarious new book, Food: A Love Story (818.602 Gaffigan) we couldn’t help but notice the uncanny resemblance the actor and comedian has to geek renaissance man, Joss Whedon. 

Jim Gaffigan & Joss Whedon 

This prompted us to play a little game in which we match up authors, both historic and modern, to their actor doppelgangers.  Take a look below and let us know if you agree with the resemblance, or if you’ve noticed a case of author/actor look-alikes we might have missed.

John Locke & Adrian Brody

Carson McCullers & Kristen Schall

Glenn Howerton & Patricia Cornwell

 Henry David Thoreau & Ellen Degeneres

 Maggie Gyllenhaal & Rose Wilder Lane

Louis C. K. & T.C. Boyle

Tobias Wolff & Richard Dreyfuss

What do you think, did any of these surprise you?  Want more author look-alikes?  Check out this photo collection of dogs who resemble famous poets.  And if you happen to look like Ernest Hemingway, you might consider heading down to the Florida Keys this July for the 35th Annual Hemingway Look Alike Contest.
