Added DiffLines:

** ''Series/GilmoreGirls'' is an interesting example in that creator Amy Sherman-Palladino cast Graham based on the fact that she perfectly exemplified Sherman-Palladino's vision for Lorelai in terms of personality, and Bledel had a bit of an attitude during one of her callbacks (due to being sick at the time) that Sherman-Palladino quite enjoyed. The fact that they look nearly identical was just a bonus, with Sherman-Palladino herself chalking it up to "pixie dust".

* As the Music/{{Queen}} biopic ''Bohemian Rhapsody'' began filming, Music/BrianMay [[https://www.instagram.com/p/BYwXAt3j0kj/?taken-by=brianmayforreal shared some Queen memorabilia recreated for the film]], and the similarities between the actors and the band members is incredible.

*** RichardMadden (Robb Stark) and his in-show half brother [[spoiler: (who is later revealed to actually be his cousin)]] Creator/KitHarington (Jon Snow) look similar enough that a common criticism of the first few episodes is that it's hard to tell which is which when they're in the same scene.

* Averted on ''Series/FullHouse''. Here, the three girls (all blonde) look more like the blonde Dave Coulier, who plays the unrelated Joey, than either Danny (their father) or Jesse (their uncle). The girl are said to take after their blonde mother, Pam, who is Jesse's sister.
** Continued as when Jesse's kids are born, they are blonde -- again, looking more like the blonde Joey.

*** Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) and Isaac Hempstead Wright (Bran Stark) who play the younger Stark siblings, have very similar facial features particularly high cheekbones, long noses and bushy eyebrows, as well as sharing Madden and Harington's dark hair and pale skin which is acknowledged in-universe as the signature Stark look.

** Supposedly, Ewan [=McGregor=] was cast by Creator/TimBurton because he uncannily resembled Albert Finney when he was younger.

* A surprising number of fans ''thought'' this was the case for Jared and Simon in ''Film/TheSpiderwickChronicles''. Freddy Highmore plays both but gives them distinct differences in behaviour and voice, as well as noticeably different appearances. When the film was released, cue a large number of message board topics about how they didn't realise they were both played by him. Truly a HeReallyCanAct moment for Highmore.

* In the 2005 adaptation of ''Film/PrideAndPrejudice'' Jena Malone and Carey Mulligan play younger sisters Lydia and Kitty respectively and have very similar nose shapes and lips. This is helped by similar hairstyles and mannerisms by the actresses. Talulah Riley as Mary looks quite like a combination of Malone and Keira Knightley who plays Lizzie. Rosamund Pike however looks nothing like her on-screen sisters -- which helps that Jane is pushed as 'the pretty one' of the family.

* Milo Ventimiglia was cast to play the adult Rocky Jr. in ''Film/RockyBalboa'' largely due to his strong resemblance to Sylvester Stallone and the fact that they shared the same crooked lip birth defect.

* Creator/GeneWilder had a short-lived sitcom called "Something Wilder" in the mid-Nineties where he played father to two little boys. One of whom was virtually a miniature clone of him.
