* 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.

* Lyricist Lorenz Hart was constantly being told that his brother Teddy, a comedian, had an uncanny resemblance to a famous comedian of the day, Jimmy Savo. When Richard Rodgers suggested that he and Hart do a musical based on Shakespeare, Hart immediately pitched the idea of ''Theatre/TheComedyOfErrors'', with Jimmy Savo and Teddy as the two Dromios. Thus ''The Boys From Syracuse'' was born, and Teddy Hart got his BigBreak.

* StargateSG1: In the episode "1969", Aaron Pearl as the young George Hammond. He looked and sounded so much like him that people were convinced that Don S. Davis dubbed the voice over. He didn't.
