For many a reason both solid and sordid, an actor might find themselves playing more than one role on the same show. It might be a twin brother (or cousin, aunt, etc. -- television has never been fussy on the details). A male character may be put in drag to play his own mother, who looks a lot like him. More than a few action shows have had a lookalike try to frame the main character. Whatever the reason, the actor is Acting For Two. Sometimes more, depending on the role.

Cleaning up Non Identical Twins misuse
** NonIdenticalTwins: Interestingly enough, this is inverted with child actors due to child-labor laws. See Michelle Tanner from FullHouse.
